Jollibee invited us last June 11, 2016 to its star-studded Independence Day celebration that was held at Metrotent in Pasig City. The mega-event brought together world-class Pinoy talent for a grand salubong of the 118th anniversary of national independence.
It was a night filled with incredible performances of OPM stars.
Darlene Vibares (The Voice Kids Philippines Season 1 finalist) and Lyka Gairanod (The Voice Kids Philippines Season 1 winner) impressed the crowd with their powerful solo performances.

You may now also wear Pinoy pride literally on your sleeves with the new Jollibee x Uniqlo T-shirts, available at Uniqlo stores nationwide starting June 20. Featuring five new designs, this capsule T-shirt collection is Jollibee’s second collaboration with the global fashion retail giant. The Jollibee x Uniqlo shirts debuted at the countdown event featuring three new different styling collections – athlesiure, summer, and denim.
Aside from we enjoyed the free concert we also got our tummy filled up with Adobo Flakes Yum! Burger and Peach Mango Pie. Thank you Jollibee!
