Ever since FPJ’s Batang Quiapo started early this year, our primetime viewing has been packed with action, drama, and a few kilig and comedy. But, just in time for the Yuletide season, a ceasefire apparently prevails as the huge and powerhouse cast of the well-loved series joined forces to bring in good vibes and entertainment to everyone during the ABS-CBN Christmas Special 2023 held last December 13 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The squad was led by its lead star and director Coco Martin, alongside his current onscreen partner Ivana Alawi, as they performed a duet. Several of their castmates joined them in singing, while the others, especially the veterans and seasoned thespians who rarely appear in this kind of gathering, truly amused viewers as they vigorously showed off their hidden dancing chops and playful sides as they grooved to the beat of the music.
Of course, Coco and Ivana didn’t let their spectacular intermission number simply end without expressing their overwhelming gratitude to everyone who has been supporting ABS-CBN all throughout, especially its teleseryes, including theirs. The other cast then joined them in enthusiastically greeting everyone “Maligayang Pasko at Manigong Bagong Taon!”
