Filipino-American singer Apl.de.Ap is honored by the prestigious This Time Foundation in the US, not for his musical talent, but for his charity works.

Known as Allan Pineda in real life, Apl was given an award for using his success as a Black Eyed Peas member to pay it forward.

The "This Time Foundation" is also teaming up with Apl's own foundation to raise funds and generate awareness on poverty. The Apl.de.Ap Foundation helps poor communities and children in the Philippines and Asia.

Aside from his family here at home, Apl also dedicated his award to his American dad who adopted him and brought him to the US.

Fellow Fil-Am stars like Tia Carrere, Jessica Sanchez and Lou Diamond Phillips were at the gala to show their support for Apl.
