The Department of Tourism and the Tourism Promotions Board hosted a gathering at the “48 Lounge” on the Avenue of the Americas that was truly a fiesta of fun, music, and color and Universal Light and Sound provide the sound equipment used at this memorable event.
Guests were treated to song numbers by Filipino-American rapper Apl.de.ap, and American Idol runner-up, Filipina-American singer Jessica Sanchez.
The highlight of the event was the arrival of Pia Wurtzbach, the elegant and articulate Filipina who is also the reigning Miss Universe. Ms. Wurtzbach, who is most known for the phrase, “confidently beautiful with a heart,” graciously spoke of the beauty of the Philippines and the Filipino people as she invited the foreign guests to visit the country.
