A series of fundraising concerts is being prepared for couple Richard and Roni Merk who are currently undergoing medical treatments at the De Los Santos Hospital along E. Rodriguez Ave. in Quezon City.
Richard is having his right foot treated to avoid amputation, while Roni just had a colon operation.
Spearheading the project is jazz singer Jacqui Magno. “Richard and Roni are good friends to everyone, and they’ve always been so generous to others especially their needy fellow artists, doing fundraising shows for them. Now it’s everybody’s turn to help them out in their time of need,” Jacqui said.
On April 28, a concert will be held at Primo’s in Greenfield, Mandaluyong. Those who’ve committed to perform so far are Ricky Davao, Skarlet and her Band, Joey San Andres and his band, Mar Dizon and the TnT Band, Riki Gonzalez, Romy Posadas, May Bayot, and Jacqui Magno.
