Moët Hennessy Asia Pacific extends relief to Typhoon Yolanda victims
November 18, 2013
With the horrific typhoon Yolanda that hit the Visayas region, as shattered landscapes and left massive number of Filipinos displaced due to lack of shelter, food, water, and medicines, Moët Hennessy Asia Pacific – Philippine Representative Office sympathizes with the entire Filipino nation. While countless of lives were also appallingly swept away by what is known to be the strongest typhoon in the world to date, thousands are still in dire need of help.
In this light, the Moët Hennessy Asia Pacific – Philippines Representative Office puts aside its much sought Hennessy Artistry Halo 2013 slated on November 15, at the NBC Tent in Global City to empathize with the Filipinos and extend relief assistance.
Moët Hennessy Asia Pacific will be in direct coordination with the Philippine Red Cross to provide donation in aide of the organization’s ongoing disaster management services and humanitarian relief operations.
The disaster is indeed unimaginable and the scope is heart wrenching.
If we could heed the call for “The Global Art of Mixing” for the annual Hennessy Artistry Halo and bring together various genres of music from artists of diverse and multicultural act, let us join hands for another purpose: to bring hope and music back to the lives of countless Filipinos.
Though the night of good music for Halo 2013 shall be put on hold, we encourage everyone across the world that have been supportive of the Hennessy Artistry events to take a moment of prayer and find ways to help rebuild spirits of Filipinos through little acts of generosity and sacrifices.
Put together each of our efforts, no matter the volume, we can make positive change.
The Halo event would have had international and local artists performing both solo and in collaboration, to be headlined by Swedish DJ Duo Cazzette with their unique brand of house, dub-step, trance and funk. Other artists that were also set to join the Halo 2013 event are Australian pop star Timomatic, our very own Nicole Asensio, including Urban Dub, hip-hop DJ and Drummer Duo Motherbasss and DJ Jessica Milner.
Hennessy Artistry Halo Manila is rescheduled on January 24, 2014.
