MANILA – It has been more than two weeks since the Taal Volcano erupted that left thousands of people in Batangas displaced.

Many celebrities have already begun doing their part in reaching out to the evacuees, and now artists in the local music industry are getting together for a fundraising concert.

“Tulong Taal: A Musical Collaboration for Taal Rehabilitation” will be held at the Cuneta Astrodome on Saturday, February 1.

According to website PEP, the concert was a brainchild of veteran composer Vehnee Saturno, who likewise composed the song “Tulong Taal” after the calamity struck.

“The music video aims to inspire ang mga kababayang Batangueño at mga Pilipino. We hope to generate fund from this which will also go to funds for Tulong Taal,” Alvarez told PEP.

All the singers involved are hoping that with their upcoming fundraising concert, help may be extended to more displaced families in Batangas.
