Rebuild! Philippines & APL.DE.AP Foundation With the Black Eyed Peas
Hollywood, June 8, 2014. Sunday evening Apl.de.ap, will.i.am and Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas headlined the “Rebuild!” Benefit Concert for Typhoon Haiyan Survivors at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. Spearheaded by the Apl.de.ap Foundation (ADAF), celebrities and VIP guests enjoyed a private reception before the concert with appetizers and drinks by VitaFrute, the exclusive drink of the event.
The concert showcased top celebrity talent from the Philippines. All the artists performed one or two songs. Then and for over an hour and a half, the three Black Eyed Peas members performed the biggest hits from the band along with their top solo songs. They told the story of how they first met when they were kids. Apl.de.ap and will.i.am became friends when Apl.de.ap came from the Philippines and him himself suffers from the eye sight deficiency the Apl.de.ap Foundation is fighting.
Music fans enjoyed live sets by some of today’s hottest artists benefiting survivors after a devastating typhoon destroyed portions of Southern Philippines. The proceeds of the concert will be dispersed by the ADAF to several projects and NGOs based in the Philippines who are doing direct work to help the survivors of the devastation.
