The musical show is Human Nature Davao’s way of saying thank you to its friends and customers for their loyal support to the brand’s Pro-Poor, Pro-Philippines and Pro-Environment advocacy.
For four Saturdays which began last November 18, various performers entertained the shoppers of Human Nature Davao and Plaza del Carmen with endearing Christmas carols, ballads, and a touch of dance music on the side.

The musical series opened with Davao City’s renowned St. Joseph’s Choral Ensemble’s catchy Christmas carols. On November 25, guests were treated to an acoustic rendition of favorite Christmas tunes and hits from the 80s and 90s from the award-winning Muses Acoustic Band.

On December 2, watch the Gawad Kalinga SAKADAB Choir, a PWD community that has serenaded and brought tears to no less than President Rodrigo R. Duterte, as their group hits the high notes, inspiring the audience with their story of faith and determination.

And, finally, on December 9, a Filipino musical series is never complete without a sing-along.  Alfonso “Ponsing” Fernandez provides the flawless keyboard accompaniment on Hymns’ open-mike night with Human Nature’s family and friends.
