Making a Difference at the Age of Sixteen

Bridges-PH produced and recently launched It’s More than Jem #sixteen, a video album of songs arranged for 16-year-old Jem Cathleen Lao.

At a young age, Jem believes in using her talent in music to bless those in need. This is why she decided to have a solo concert at Hard Rock Café Makati for the benefit of Real LIFE scholars during the Christmas season in 2016. In celebration of her sixteenth birthday in 2018, she raised funds again for our scholars through her video album It’s More than Jem #sixteen.


“Amidst all the chaos and uncertainties, we believe that the youth can continue the good work of today's leaders in rehabilitating and rebuilding our nation. There is much to be done and these young people need our help. Bridges-PH hopes to be an instrument linking individuals and institutions like you to our nation's scholars in providing resources for their education and character development. Through It’s More Than Jem #sixteen, we saw another opportunity to do exactly this. For every donation coursed through Bridges-PH, donors will receive a corresponding number of video albums as our way of saying thank you. 100% of all donations will go to Real LIFE Foundation to help fund the tuition fees of their scholars.”
