Angel Locsin’s ‘Iba ‘Yan’ launches online show
ABS-CBN public service program hosted by Angel Locsin, “Iba ‘Yan” has found more ways to help Filipinos as it launched its digital show “IbaYanihan,” which reiterates its call to help those who are greatly affected by the pandemic on Kapamilya Online Live.
Streaming during commercial gaps, “IbaYanihan” features Kapamilya artists talking about the inspirational stories shown on “Iba ‘Yan” while providing ways where people can send donations and other forms of assistance from their homes.
One way is by donating through the ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation’s BDO Account 005630050932 (Mother Ignacia branch). Donors can also send their donations via GCash to the same bank account.
On the show’s first streaming last August 23, Robi Domingo encouraged viewers to donate to Wipe Every Tear, an organization which helps women and children who are victims of human trafficking. On August 30, Dimples Romana, appealed for more funding for Nanay Ligaya Piadoche’s recently opened charity for frontliners.
Apart from the heart-wrenching stories, the digital show also features inspiring performances from Kapamilya singers. In its last episode, Angeline Quinto sang her heart out by performing a touching OPM song.
“Iba ‘Yan” airs every Sunday, 6:15 PM on Kapamilya Channel and Kapamilya Onlind Live.
ABS-CBN turns to digital to find the ultimate bida star
ABS-CBN takes another huge step in its digital shift as it moves from live auditions to discovering new talents online with “Bida Star,” Star Hunt’s newest virtual talent competition set to discover the first “Ultimate Bida Star.”
Out of thousands of aspiring talents, 50 were selected to enter the competition and go head-to-head for a chance to take home the P25,000 prize and to star in their own short feature alongside a Kapamilya artist.
Every week, the star dreamers will go through a KUMU acting challenge and a mentor’s challenge which will test their skills and determination. To help them with the challenges, the star dreamers will undergo acting workshops supervised by esteemed mentors who will guide them to unleash their “Bida Star” quality.
Fans can vote for their bets by sending KUMU virtual gifts or by logging in to ktx.abs-cbn.com. At the end of the week, the star dreamer who will get the lowest number of KUMU virtual gifts and lowest score from the mentors will be eliminated from the competition.
Produced by TVDG, “Bida Star” is the latest digital initiative of ABS-CBN following the recent launch of Kapamilya Online Live that streams its new and well-loved shows live and on-demand, the TuTuBee channel on YouTube for kids, digital events on KTX.ph ticket portal, and more original digital offerings such as Online Kapamilya Shows (oks.abs-cbn.com), Star Cinema’s “We Rise Together,” and For Your Entertainment channel on the Kumu app.
