MANILA - A free concert topbilled by a host of Kapamilya singers was held on Saturday at the Marikina Sports Center in support of Manny Pacquiao's upcoming bout against Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Dubbed as "Isang Bayan Para kay Pacman", the event lasted for more than five hours. Among the performers were Jay R, Daryl Shy, Nyoy Volante, Sunshine Cruz, Edgar Allan Guzman, Bugoy Drilon and shadow play group El Gamma Penumbra.

Other acts include Banda ni Kleggy, Jireh Lim and Band, Gimme 5, Marcelito Pomoy, Gracenote, and the "kalokalikes" of Manny Pacquiao, Jinkee Pacquiao, and Freddie Roach.

They also threw a "punch" for the Filipino boxing icon in support of ABS-CBN's ongoing online campaign called "One for Pacman."

As of writing, the campaign has already generated 35 million "punches" as a pledge of support to the "People's Champ."

On social media, one "punch" is equivalent to a post with the hashtag #OneForPacman on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
