NOTHING beats music in getting a message across.

The 2008 Earth Day Jam, held last April 25 in Tomas Morato, Quezon City, had bands and artists coming together to promote “greenness” through music.

The yearly Earth Day Jam celebration, singer-songwriter Noel Cabangon said, remains an ideal venue for artists to showcase their talents, and at the same time remind people about taking better care of the environment.

“The free party is a venue for artists to share their concern for the environment,” he added.

During the show, the performers sang songs, changing the lyrics to convey the message “Help Save Mother Earth,” and giving environmental tips in between. Artists Barbie Almalbis, Imago, Moonstar 88, Sino Sikat?, Up Dharma Down, Reggae Mistress, and Rivermaya joined the free concert.

Nongovernmental organizations like Greenpeace and Haribon Foundation also set up “envi-tents” or booths where they showcased their projects.
