Clippers Filipino Heritage Night was organized this year by the IconicReach team and DJ E-Man of Power 106, who were contacted by fellow Power 106 radio DJ E-Rock by the Clippers marketing team after working with him on other projects with the San Francisco 49ers and Giants. Erock reached out to both longtime friends knowing their history producing high profile & community events for artists like Jay-Z, Rihanna, Kendrick & Justin Timberlake at MySpace.com and a weekly celebrity basketball game at various high-schools across LA and one large annual event at USC with artists like Chris Brown and Justin Bieber with Power 106.
The special night’s performances included Apl.de.ap of the Black Eyed Peas featuring his artist, Jessica Reynoso that he met on The Voice Philippines and also sang the national anthem beautifully that night. Throughout the evening, DJ E-Rock and E-Man joined resident DJ Dense on the turntables for special dance cam moments that included music from Filipino artists like Bruno Mars, Black Eyed Peas & P-Lo.
