Vice Ganda’s voice broke as she couldn’t help but turn emotional when the songbayanan of factory workers won the P500,000 jackpot prize in ABS-CBN’s “Everybody, Sing!” on Sunday (August 29).
Vice explained that Harra, one of the contestants, moved her so much that she felt the songbayanan deserved to win. Harra shared on the show that she was retrenched and is now struggling to make ends meet as they are nine in the household. Because of their difficult situation, sometimes Harra’s mother skips meals just so her children could eat.
“Hindi ko kasi kaya ‘yung istorya ni Harra. Hindi kumakain ‘yung nanay at tatay niya kasi hindi sapat. Hindi ko kaya ‘yun, na uuwi siya, tapos mangyayari na naman ‘yun sa kanila,” Vice dressed up as Harley Quinn said.
She added, “maliit na tulong ito, itong bigay namin sa inyo. Bukod sa fun, bukod sa entertainment, gusto naming kayong tulungan. Kung puwede lang naming kayo tulungan lahat. Maliit lang naman ‘yan, pero ang sarap sa pakiramdam.”
Meanwhile on Saturday (August 28), Vice Ganda transformed into Hello Kitty and got to know the songbayanan of flight attendants who took home P35,000 in the jackpot round. They shared with Vice that their profession isn’t just all about glam as they also need to be patient and learn how to deal with different people from different cultures.
This weekend (September 4 at 5), witness the community singing of the tourism sector and stage performers. Will luck be on their side? Find out in “Everybody, Sing!” hosted by Vice Ganda and featuring the resident band Six Part Invention every Saturday and Sunday at 7 pm on A2Z, Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, iWantTFC, at TFC.
