The country’s most watched TV program, FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, marked its first anniversary with a grand concert recently at the Araneta Coliseum to thank its loyal viewers for making the show a phenomenal success.

Titled FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano: Isang Pamilya Tayo the Anniversary Concert, the event served huge surprises from the country’s hottest love teams, leading men and popular stars.

Fans welcomed the whole cast of the series led by Coco Martin, who celebrated his birthday that night. The celebration continued with Coco giving a heartfelt tribute to Fernando Poe Jr. in his rendition of the OPM classic Doon Lang.

After his performance, the lead star of the series shared some touching words about “Da King.”

“Aside from Jose Rizal and other national heroes, I consider FPJ one of my idols. I hope the good memories he left with us continue to stick in our hearts, especially the youth’s,” said Coco.

Music also took center stage as Ogie Alcasid, Kyla, Ayen Munji-Laurel and Vina Morales took the crowd on a trip down memory lane as they sang the theme songs of Coco’s ABS-CBN teleseryes.
