Who is 1 Walker?
About 5 years ago, newly weds Ogie and Regine Alcasid decided to go on a journey. They embarked on a quest to get to know God through a weekly small group led by Bernard Marquez.
Some of their friends — including Liza Martinez, Jaya, Sushi Reyes and Archie Castillo — joined them on their faith walk. Through weekly get-togethers, they read the Word of God and grew in their walk with Christ.
Realizing that these friends love music just as they love God, Regine broached the idea of putting together a band dedicated to playing praise and worship music. Everyone was on board.
Eventually, more singers and musicians hopped on with the same mission — Marnie Jereza, Manolo Tanquilut, Eugene Cailao, Zebedee Zuniga, Criss Beunviaje, Jem Florendo, Soc Mina, Michael Alba, JunJun Regalado and Nikko Rivera. Thus, “1 Walker” was born.
Why 1 Walker?
It is the address of where this journey began. The Bible verse “For we walk by faith, not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7 NKJV)” also plays an important role in the band’s existence.
What’s the Reborn Worship Concert for?
Two years ago, a number of top executives came together and decided to form a group that will gather corporate leaders, businessmen and entrepreneurs alike to take a break from the busyness of business over light breakfast and light music, and encourage one another through light life talks.
Under the Light of Jesus Community of lay preacher and best-selling author, Bo Sanchez, they called their midweek gathering “Power Mornings.” As persons of influence, they collaborate and commit themselves to be agents of change in their respective organizations.
For two years, the “Power Mornings” attendees have been sharing and learning from one another over coffee and various discussions. This has been their weekly routine until eventually, they realized and agreed that they cannot just be a mere “breakfast” club. In their aim to elevate their commitment a notch higher, they decided to go out and reach out to communities.
They decided to start doing so by looking for others who shared the same mission, i.e. to help the poor and needy. Thus, a collaboration concert with 1 Walker was conceived — specifically to raise funds for the benefit of the abandoned elderly of the Anawim Lay Missions Foundation, Inc., one of the mercy ministries of Bo Sanchez.
What do these two passionate groups of people have in common? It is love. Love for faith and music. Love for the poor. Love that responds to the call to “give back”.
