Just this year, Taylor Swift released her 8th album "Folklore" that *blessed* every Swiftie's ears with more amazing songs from Tay-Tay herself. Unfortunately, concerts are still prohibited due to the pandemic and her fans won't be hearing her new songs live any time soon. But if you are in for some Taylor Swift jamming sessions and you are open to help out our jeepney drivers who were affected by the pandemic, there is a Taylor Swift-themed online benefit gig that will be broadcasted on Facebook tomorrow, September 19, at 6:30 p.m.

#BiyahengCornelia is a benefit gig organized by PARA PH or the Performers' Assembly for Relief Action that aims to help 500 jeepney drivers from Rizal. Partnering with PARA PH is the JuanSpark Youth Leaders (JYL), a non-profit, non-political organization that caters to a network of young leaders that advocate youth empowerment, leadership, and community involvement.


In an interview with the JYL co-founder Andrea Peregrino via Messenger, she told Candy that both groups were bound by the advocacy to help the jeepney drivers and the reason why PARA PH was created is because of this benefit gig.

"Actually, nabuo yung PARA PH dahil sa #BiyahengCornelia [na] naging pilot event. Ang plan nila [noong] una, benefit gig lang hanggang sa nagustuhan na nilang buuin at nilo-look forward na nilang i-extend yung kaya nilang matulong sa susunod pa."

The performers will be 12 local artists from social media including Juan Miguel Severo and Ali King who will perform classic Taylor Swift hits that we all love like "Love Story", "Style", "Exile", "Back to December", and many more.

Nothing good starts with a getaway car, so come with us in #BiyahengCornelia benefit gig instead! Catch us on September...
