Filipinos packed Ricoh Coliseum for the main show

MANILA - Several Kapamilya stars brought cheer to thousands of fans during the One Kapamilya Go in Toronto, Canada.

The big event held at the Direct Energy Centre and Ricoh Coliseum was graced by Maja Salvador, Enrique Gil, Xian Lim, Angel Locsin, Vice Ganda and Mr. Pure Energy, Gary Valenciano.

“We promised to turn Toronto into the happiest place for our fellow Filipinos and we hoped that we achieved it with this year’s One Kapamilya Go. Our brothers and sisters deserved it,” said ABS-CBN Global Head of Events, Ad Sales & Trade Marketing Ricky Resurreccion.

Comedy duo Tart Carlos and Vivieka Ravanes from TFC's global romance-comedy 'Be Careful With My Heart" served as event emcees.

Salvador performed J.Lo's megahit "Goin' In" and her first hit "Dahan-dahan".

Gil performed his own hit "OHA, Kaya Mo Ba 'To" followed by his updated version of the Hagibis classic, "Katawan".

Locsin, for her part, charmed the audience with her rendition of Katy Perry's "The One That Got Away" followed by a cool performance of Zia Quizon's jazzy pop hit, "Ako Na Lang".

Lim thrilled the fans with two numbers, his own single "Di Bale" and Parokya Ni Edgar's "Harana".

Superstar Vice Ganda had the crowd in stitches with his hilarious interactions with two game audience members

The entire crowd went from swooning to standing, screaming and jumping as stand-up comedian Vice Ganda performed his "Boom Panes" number.

Gary V kicked off with the nostalgic, “Babalik Ka Rin”, peppering it with his unique dance moves, followed by the TFC 20 theme song, “Galing ng Filipino", and climaxed with his own greatest hits medley that had everyone dancing on their feet.

“This is TFC’s 20th anniversary offering so we should showcase the best 360-degree entertainment experience that we have nurtured in the past two decades,” said Olivia De Jesus, ABS-CBN North America Managing Director. “We will continue to deliver this and even aim higher all in the service of the Filipino globally as our founders mandated.”
