Allan Pineda Lindo is his name but most of us know him as apl.de.ap from the famous musical group the Black Eyed Peas. Through his music he has shown to be proud of his Filipino ancestry. With his famous celebrity status he is doing his part to help out his fellow Filipinos affected by the devastating storms that have recently hit Manila and the northern Philippines. On October 15th, apl performed at a benefit concert alongside local Filipino hip hop artists at the Skydome in Manila to help raise money for the communities hit hard by the storms. He himself donated cash and brought with him canned goods to be distributed to the people of the devastated communities. Apl spoke to the Filipino reporters and said that, “I just want to tell everybody that my heart goes out to you guys and I will try my best to help out.”

It’s nice to know that a person of his status is using his celebrity to help his fellow Filipinos. He has the ability to spread the word out to more than just the Filipino communities here in America, but also many of the non-Filipino people who are fans of the Black Eyed Peas to help boost awareness and aide to all those who are still suffering from the effects of the storms.
