The concert will be for the benefit of Kythe Foundation, a non-stock, non-profit organization that supports children with chronic illnesses. Such endeavor is just another ‘giving back’ efforts of Guidicelli. Also, he chose to stage the latest concert in Cebu, (almost a year after his first solo concert in Music Museum), “Because it is my home province and it is where I started—it is just but appropriate that I give back by saluting Cebu and its pride.”

He will be performing with Cebuano performer Kurt Fick, the singer behind the song—‘Hahaha Hasula’ (Such a Hassle). Also in performing in the said show are the Concert King—Martin Nievera, Soul Supreme KZ and the G-Force Dancers.
