The Little Sisters of The Poor, an international Religious congregation, in Pasay City run a home for the elderly where we performed for a birthday celebration at their main function room. More tables outside the hall for other guests were provided. A special place was set for the elderly for their entertainment.

The house is for older people, 65 years and above, who are abandoned, others found on streets  and the rest turned over by the Department of Social Welfare to the Home of the Little Sisters of the Poor.  They depend on God’s Providence working through generous benefactors.  It is such a relief that a place like this exists for elders who need comfort and a sort of longing until their last moment.  And nuns can do the sincerest task for them.

My brother, Manny Lupato, had an interlude with one dying woman with no relative to be found and his story pinched my very soul. She also asked for Ensure milk and my brother handed an undisclosed bill to one of the sisters to grant her simple wish. It’s such an experience for him and signalled me a lesson.

Well, we as music artists did the best we can to liven the party with not only upbeat songs and music but some love songs. Others joined by rendering some songs for the celebrant and some dance numbers that surprised Jessielyn, the birthday girl.

Augustine Music and Events performs all kinds of music and songs that fit the theme of the celebration. We do their music requests on the spot or they can perform them with the able hands of great Philippine Musicians who are not only into weddings but all events requiring music entertainment.

Such relief was felt for another experience sharing our love of music. Someday we will go back at The Little Sisters of The Poor Home to serenade the elderly with songs of the past.
