Sunday concert benefits PI relief efforts

by Krystal Paco

Guam - The island's talented are coming together in support of Supertyphoon Yolanda relief efforts. At Sundays "A Day of Hope and Music" benefit concert, producer Henry Sherrard and owner of Sounds Unlimited says residents can enjoy free music in the park with raffle ticket sales to benefit our brothers and sisters in the Philippines.

"At the moment we have 16 bands so this is going to be the largest gathering of bands to do a benefit concert ever in Guam's history. So 16 bands in an eight-hour time span - that's unbelievable!" he said.

The Filipino Community of Guam will also be on site to collect non-perishable food items and clothing.

Between bands, Sherrard notes that the island's dance troops as well as John Robert Powers will be performing.

The free concert kicks off on Sunday at noon at Ypao Beach Park and rounds out at 8 p.m.
