EXCLUSIVE: See 30+ ABS-CBN Stars In This Special "Metro x ASAP Kapamilya Forever Day" Photo Shoot (Part 1)

"What are your fondest memories as a Kapamilya? What does being a Kapamilya mean to you?" Some of ABS-CBN's biggest and brightest stars looked back on their journey with the network at the recent #ASAPKapamilyaForever day

It’s been a year since a House of Representatives panel killed ABS-CBN’s fresh franchise application, yet the company still receives overwhelming support from many fans across the world. Despite the challenges, Kapamilya stars also remain loyal to ABS-CBN as they hope for the day the company makes its way back to television. 


Last July 10, #IbalikAngABSCBN went viral in different social media platforms as this date marks the first anniversary of the company’s shutdown. A day after, ASAP Natin ’To held a “Kapamilya Forever Day” and staged live performances of their biggest and brightest stars—from the young and rising artists to the veterans. They dazzled onstage while they poured their hearts out to show their support to the network that they also consider as their second home. 


Fans of the Kapamilya stars and the network also expressed their support through social media using the hashtag #ASAPKapamilyaForever. Aside from the live performances of the ASAP regulars, the international British rock band Coldplay also delivered an outstanding performance of their latest single “Higher Power,” live from the UK.


They say that being in a family means that you are a part of something wonderful. Though seasons may change and the ground may shake at times, the Kapamilya network continues its mission of being in the service of the Filipino. 


To express their gratitude for ABS-CBN, a number of artists spoke up about their genuine love for the company. Metro.Style asked them what their fondest memories as a Kapamilya are as well as what it truly means to them to be a Kapamilya.

ABS-CBN also released a video titled “Andito Kami Dahil Sa Inyo” as the network’s way of thanking its loyal viewers and fans while assuring them that the company would continue to give joy and hope through its programs. 


Andito pa rin ang ating tahanan dahil pinatuloy niyo kami sa inyong mga pusoAndito pa rin ang mga ngiti dahil sa ligaya ng nadarama 'pag tayo ay magkakasama,” the video said. “Ang ating ABS-CBN mananatiling nandito.”
