MANILA -- Bidaman grand finalist Jiro Custodio will be performing in a special concert this coming November 22 at the Cuneta Astrodome in Pasay City.

The concert, dubbed “The Greatest Show at the Cuneta Astrodome” as it is inspired by the American musical drama film "The Greatest Showman," will be for the benefit of children with cancer and for Pasay street children.

Custodio, who made it to the finals of the popular Bidaman segment of the top-rated ABS-CBN noontime show "It's Showtime," has a pair of singles out – “Sabihin Mo Na” and “Deep Inside” that are both out on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, and other digital platforms.

Aside from his original songs, Custodio himself is preparing the playlist for his Astrodome performance. “I will sing songs that mean much to me as a person and growing up,” he said.

The 22-year old youngster will be joined by veteran singer Dulce, "The X Factor UK" alumnus Maria Laroco, "Britain’s Got Talent" contestant Madonna Decena, and other rising singing stars.

“Performing in a setting like this along with Ms. Dulce, and sila Maria Laroco is a dream come true,” said Custodio. “I previously opened for Dingdong Avanzado along with Maria in a show at the SM Skydome several months ago. Imagine to be able to perform with OPM legends like Dingdong and Ms. Dulce – suwerte.”

While growing up in Gapan, Nueva Ecija, Custodio performed in a number of school bands playing pop and alternative music. 

“Playing in school bands was like a passion and a hobby,” bared Custodio. “You perform and you dream of making it performing along with your idols such as the Eraserheads, Rivermaya, Parokya ni Edgar.”

“I hope I can also make my 'Showtime' colleagues proud,” concluded Custodio.

Tickets to concert at the Cuneta Astrodome are available at SM Tickets.
