Celebrities who support the Leni Robredo-Kiko Pangilinan tandem have admitted that they can feel a huge “change” is coming after the incredible turnout of over 70,000 kakampinks at the Pink Grand Rally in Bacolod City.
The event just surpassed the 47,000-attendee rally in Cavite. Locals compared it to the city’s annual MassKara Festival, held every October.
Robredo was surprised at how the crowd waited even after a tiring day.
“Hindi pa ba kayo pagod? Umulan na, uminit na, napakataas pa rin ng energy n’yo. Lagi n’yo kaming ginugulat kapag bumibisita kami dito,” she said, greeting the thousands wearing pink.
Artists and actors such as Joel Torre, Ronnie Lazaro, Edu Manzano, Ogie Diaz, Agot Isidro, and Nikki Valdez were present. Local bands Mayonnaise and Rivermaya also performed for the supporters.
Celebrities who back the tandem couldn’t hide how proud they were of the Pink army.
Janine Gutierrez only had a few words, but everyone knew what she meant.
