A NIGHT FILLED WITH BRIGHT RAYS OF LIGHT AND HOPE We light as one | We heal as one | We will shine as one
The first-ever united effort of the Lights and Sounds Industry of the Philippines simultaneously illuminated all corners of the country’s night sky with bright rays of white light to pay tribute to the healthcare workers who are on the front line, battling against the Covid-19 pandemic in the Philippines. Tagged as “WE LIGHT AS ONE”, this momentous activity took place on April 12 from 7PM to 8PM.
The event involved various lighting and audio groups nationwide. Participants had to illuminate the sky with white light using their rental inventory of moving beam lights, par led lights and/or laser lights, to symbolize faith and hope for all the front liners and victims of Covid-19 in the country. The idea of lighting the sky came from Mr. John Gopez of Xtreme Lights and Sounds, Pampanga. It was his initiative to come up with an activity to honor the front liners for their dedication in serving the Filipino people amidst this pandemic. Going through the possibility of making it feasible, Mr. Gopez sought the opinions of his fellow industry colleagues and they all agreed to make his idea materialize. Mr. Sandy David of Pro BeatBox Entertainment Concept and Mr. Anthony Lim of VPro Digital Solutions Corp. came up with the recommendation to make this activity more significant and substantial, by using the momentous event to raise funds to provide much needed PPEs for the healthcare workers. True enough, the hard work has paid off. To date, “We Light As One” has successfully raised over one million Philippines Pesos (USD20,000). “We Light As One”, an hour of solidarity of the Philippine Lights and Sounds Industry by giving light and hope to the front liners, that they may have the strength and courage to help those who are in need and helpless.
