People sing for many reasons. Some sing to showcase their talent. Others hum a note or two to find joy and channel inner peace. But in the case of international singing sensation Charice Pempengco, she lent her powerful voice to bring melodies of hope to the displaced Boholano victims of the shattering 7.2 magnitude earthquake in a benefit concert entitled One Voice on Nov. 5, at the Newport Theater Hall at the Resorts World, Manila

The benefit concert was realized with the collaborative efforts of Bellhaus Entertainment, Resorts World Manila, Philippine Chinese Charitable Association, Inc. (PCCAI), owner and operator of the Chinese General Hospital and Medical Center (CGHMC).
Prior to the concert, the performer made a courtesy call to PCCAI, Inc. President Dr. James Dy. She expressed her gratitude to Dr. Dy for choosing her to star on the said charity concert because she has always wanted to extend her helping hand to her displaced kababayans hit by the recent quake.
All proceeds raised from the concert will be donated to the victims in a form of medicine and relief goods.
