Epic free online concert makes history in PH


Only four months ago, an online concert was an inconceivable idea; almost as inconceivable as a pandemic but more inconceivable as a free virtual event such as Tinig ng Bayan. With a talent lineup that was difficult to bring together even in pre-pandemic times, Tinig ng Bayan was billed as the concert event of the time.

Thanks to the novel coronavirus, people learned to live, work and even have fun in unusual and novel ways. Perhaps the most ambitiously innovative concert in this time, Tinig ng Bayan was a unique testament to the indomitable Filipino spirit.

Brought together by love of country and the greater good, Tinig ng Bayan featured the likes of Martin Nievera, Kakie Pangilinan, Jim Paredes and Boboy Garovillo, Noel Cabangon, Kean Cipriano, Johnoy Danao, Agot Isidro, Iza Calzado , Mylene Dizon, Enchong Dee, Ria Atayde and the League of AKTOR, Odette Quesada, Celeste Legaspi, Mitch Valdes, Bituin Escalante, Bayang Barrios, The Company, Bullet Dumas, Moonstar 88, True Faith, Baihana, Toma Cayabyab, Arman Ferrer, Jesuit Music Ministry, PETA and many more.

With a virtual gathering of some of the greatest talents the country has ever produced, they performed in one unparalleled online concert event that would likely never happen again whether live or online. It was not just an epic music event, but a historical one.

Tinig ng Bayan livestreamed on Radyo Katipunan 87.9 on Monday, July 27 from 3 to 6 p.m.
