The benefit concert is produced by the Foursome Event Productions. The idea for the concert began when the whole Philippines was shocked when almost 72 person were killed in a massacre in Maguindanao causing fear and panic to the people . The producers immediately thought of something beneficial yet entertaining to help both police and army personnel and decided to produce a benefit concert. “It is the best time for us Filipinos to contribute in helping changing the status of peace and order in Mindanao. Every single Filipino has his own share so everyone should make a move and participate”, according to the producers.
Balay Mindanaw Foundation Inc. (BMFI) is a Mindanao-based and Mindanao-focused Philippine NGO. BMFI’s work and its people articulate a sense of fierce pride for Mindanao and a passion for transforming this poorest and most conflict-torn of the country’s regions into a “balay”, a true home for its peoples – Christians, Muslims and Lumads, indigenous peoples of Mindanao.
It is a non-stock, non-profit foundation primarily engaged in peace-building, promoting sustainable integrated area development, developing the mechanisms and technology for democratic participation of peoples and communities in local governance and facilitating agrarian reform implementation.
Sitti Navarro was chosen by the producers as the performing artist because she is one of the most popular performer and also the city’s favorite female singer. Sitti will once again mesmerize Cagayanons with her hit songs like Para Sa Akin, Hey Look at the Sun, Tattooed on My Mind, Kung Di Rin Lang Ikaw and many more. Also, before Sitti’s performance, Cagayan De Oro’s hottest local band, Acoustic Genes, will be performing . Part of the concert proceeds will go to the Balay Mindanaw Foundation Inc., for the sustainment of their “Op-Kors” or Operation Peace Course which aims to educate and reform both army and police officers in order to become peace advocates here in Mindanao.
So mark your calendar and bring your family, friends and of course love ones and let us help in promoting peace and order in Mindanao as we watch “Sitti: In Love With Bossa”. (press release)
