Primary Group of Builders Brings Back B-Pop A Capella Challenge
The Primary Group of Builders will once again hold the B-Pop A Capella Challenge this year on November 9, 2019 at the SM Seaside City Cebu Skyhall. With the success of last year’s event, the Primary Group of Builders hopes to replicate the achievements of B-Pop 2018 with a grander and more colorful event this year.
The annual B-Pop A Capella Challenge serves two purposes: to showcase raw Cebuano talent and to help the scholars of SKILLS. SKILLS is operated by the Primary Structures Educational Foundation, Inc., the corporate foundation of the Primary Group of Builders.
SKILLS offers formal senior high school education as well as short-term courses accredited by the Department of Education and TESDA. Each year, they train, assess, and certify 1,000 workers. Although SKILLS is known for its construction-related courses, the school also offers training and assessment in the fields of hotel and tourism, health and social services, maritime, and ESL.
Last year, the event was able to raise around Php500,000 which allowed 30 scholars to study for free at SKILLS. According to Mrs. Paulette D. Liu, Chief Operating Officer of PSEFI-SKILLS Foundation, they hope to raise more this year so that they could offer more scholarships to more students.
This year’s B-Pop A Capella Challenge will start at 4 pm and will feature live performances not only from the top four finalists – The Basics, The Arkapella, Primiero, and Improptones – but also from local guest artists like Wonggoys, Jerika Teodorica, Johnel Bucog, Gerlyn Abano, and Melody Hudgson. Tickets are sold at P500.00 each. Gates open at 3:00 pm with the Pop District Pop-up Bazaar.
