"Whenever I see boys and girls selling lanterns on the street.... I remember the child in the manger as he sleeps... " --- Who would ever forget this famous Christmas song? I grew up as a child caroling in our neighborhood singing this memorable song from singer-songwriter, Jose Mari Chan.  Thus, I believe it is just simply perfect when Mr. Chan confirmed  that he will join the star-studded ensemble of artists who will perform at the upcoming “Celebrate with Songs of Hope: A Christmas Fundraising Concert” as part of the Breast Cancer Awareness activities for this year.  Chan who recei ved a Double Diamond Record Award for his album “Christmas in Our Hearts”, will join local artists like Franco and Ayen Laurel, Anna Feleo, Noel Azcona, Randy Gilongo, Sherwin Sozon, John Glenn Gaerlan and Anica Ordan in an evening of music and song for a great cause.  This special concert is brought to you by the Philippine Foundation for Breast Care Inc.
