Upon the invitation of GK USA - Los Angeles, California, Nobel has gathered some of his friends to share with us their gift of music to benefit our Child & Youth Development programs particularly our campaign against childhood hunger. He will be joined by Andrei Reyes, Randy Iblasin, Mayo Ong, Will Tan and Ray Yumul. They are all excited to jam together and contribute their talents in the fight against childhood hunger.
