In another post, Kris shared how she got the 5 celebrities especially Derek who will co-host to be part of the event.

"TRUTH: when Ate text me while we were on vacation, string quartet ang entertainment. So she said baka pwede kong pakiusapan si (if it's possible to talk to) @ramsayderek11 to co-host the short program w/ me and is it possible for Derek to sing even if lip sync para may konting (there's a little) excitement naman

"I said: Ate, let me please make some calls, kaya 'to. There were other artists in our short list, but DFA was very strict that the program should only be 20 minutes, so nakakahiya if not everybody will get their moment. 

"Additional trivia, when I was telling Ate and Pinky I was hoping for an ADELE medley, they both said WHO? OMG. I decided to not interfere w/ the choice of songs & we'll stick it out w/ some Broadway tunes & a medley. Thank you @angelina_jojie, @mateoguidicelli & MY LIFELONG TRUE FRIEND @ramsayderek11. #APEC2015," she said.
