“It’s out of love for him that we’re both doing this. Well, I’m gonna be the one drenched. He (her husband) is the one doing the drenching,” she said in the video.
The singer-actress challenged Filipino-American and Glee actor Darren Chris, actor Aga Muhlach and her “The Voice of the Philippines” fellow judges Apl.d.Ap, Sarah Geronimo, and Bamboo to do the ice bucket challenge and donate to the ALS organization or any local ALS organization.
