Apl.de.Ap, Will.i.am, Taboo of Black Eyed Peas in “Rebuild Philippines!”

LA music fans trooped to the Greek Theatre in Hollywood, California, on Sunday, June 8, with noble intentions to lend support to the victims of typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

Dubbed “Rebuild Philippines!”, the benefit concert was organized by the Apl.de.Ap Foundation,Inc (ADAFI). The proceeds of the concert will be dispersed by the ADAFI to several projects and NGOs in the Philippines who are doing direct work to help the survivors of the devastation.

Concert-goers were treated with a spectacular show and live sounds by some of today’s hottest artists such as Apl.de.Ap, Will.i.am and Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas, America’s Best Dance Crew Alumni Jabbawockeez, Sing-Off group The Filharmonics, beatboxer Dub FX, Yardnoise, Youtube phenom AJ Rafael and up and coming pop quartet The Jazmin Sisters.
