With the passion to help the frontliners of the COVID-19, Lea made an hour Facebook Live Concert. She streamed an hour-long concert in her own home last Thursday, April 2, 2020.

Mr. Ryan Cayabyab hosted the said series. They were able to raise 22.3 million pesos from the launching last March 18 excluding the concerts that were streamed last Thursday. The online concert of Lea was able to raise 1 million after an hour.
“That’s amazing!” Salonga said. There’s no such thing as too small of a contribution or a donation,” she added, “because when you pool all of these resources together, it becomes one whole big thing and so many people will be able to get the help that they need, the protection that they need.”
In conclusion, these artists are proof that the gift and ability we possess may used to help people in need.
