MANILA (June 15) — Reymond Sajor, Grand Champion Solo Vocalist at the 2007 World Championships of Performing Arts (WCOPA), lends his powerful pipes to attract additional World Vision sponsors for poor Filipino children getting ready for the new school year.
“I’ll Be There…A World Vision Concert” goes on stage at the Music Museum on June 27, 2009, Saturday at 7:30 p.m. with Gerard Salonga as musical director and The CompanY as special guest.
Reymond, who leads the local artist pool of the international advocacy organization, mentioned in a recent interview that, “We still need around 7,000 new sign-ups to meet our target for the year. World Vision in the Philippines is currently sending some 122,000 children to school. Around 16,000 of these youngsters are supported by Filipino sponsors.”
In this concert for a cause, Reymond is expected to deliver a powerhouse performance highlighting songs that have so far inspired his journey as an international performer; his newest single “I’ll Be There”, composed by Filipino American songwriter Ritchie LaPaz; and uplifting musical numbers pertaining to the Filipino youth, their dreams and aspirations.
Reymond, who is being managed under the Ambient Media Group, will be working on his first international album right after his concert for World Vision. His management team is all set to finalize negotiations with a Singapore-based talent company that is engaged in promoting world-class performing artists around Asia.
World Vision International is a Christian relief, development and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice.
Apart from Reymond, other World Vision endorsers include Miriam Quiambao, Karen Davila, Nikki Gil, Christian Bautista, Sam Concepcion, Sam Milby, Lea Salonga, Christine and Julius Babao.
Beverly Salviejo, Eula Valdez, Kris Aquino, Ruffa, Richard and Raymond Gutierrez, Charice and Cesar Montano, among others have been World Vision Philippines’ avid supporters.
