Filipino communities in Saudi Arabia gathered together to celebrate “Bayanihan Festival 2017”, an event sponsored by GMA Pinoy TV and held at the Cobra Amusement Park in Dammam last April 7.
Making the festivities more colorful was Asia’s Romantic Balladeer Christian Bautista who was pleasantly welcomed by Kapuso fans upon his arrival in KSA. GMA’s flagship international channel, GMA Pinoy TV, invited the Kapuso singer-actor to serenade his kababayans in time for the celebration of the Araw ng Kagitingan in the Philippines.
The audience was thrilled as Christian performed his signature OPM songs as well as pop songs, which had the crowd on their feet. They also grabbed every opportunity to take a photo with Christian, which he gladly accommodated even while he was singing on stage.
Christian, in turn, expressed his pleasure to the crowd for the eventful celebration. “Singing to our fellow Filipinos in [Saudi] was a real treat. They were so warm and friendly. We enjoyed singing together our favorite OPM songs. Hopefully we can see each other again soon,” Christian said.
Christian is set to star in the much-awaited Filipino TV adaptation of the hit Korean series My Love from the Star, which will premiere in May on GMA Pinoy TV.
Bayanihan Festival 2017 was organized by the Bayanihan Entertainment Group – KSA and Cobra Entertainment City. GMA Pinoy TV was the exclusive media sponsor for the event.
