Unknown to many people, Celine Dion’s concert in Manila almost got cancelled if it were not for television host Boy Abunda, said producert Joed Serrano.

Serrano’s co-producer backed out in December resulting in an unpaid balance. Without the payment for the talent fee, the show was in danger of being cancelled. Serrano recalled almost giving up when a friend referred him to Abunda, reported ABS-CBN.

Abunda received Serrano’s call and made an arrangement for him to meet with Flor Santos of Dreamwings Entertainment. The latter decided to shoulder the talent fee within the deadline set by Dion’s camp.

Serrano shared the story as a way of expressing his gratitude. He claimed that without Abunda’s help, there would be no Celine Dion in Manila.

He added that he was not even sure if Abunda would like to get recognized for what he did. Serrano himself cannot believe the “miracle” he had during that trial of faith.
