Cousin asks for One Direction shout-out to hospitalized Pinay ‘superfan’
She could have been one of the thousands of Filipino Directioners singing along with British superstars One Direction at their Manila concerts, but a car accident Thursday has sent Jessica Ledesma to the hospital instead.
Ledesma, who lives in Iloilo, saved up for both plane and concert tickets for the boy band's Philippine concert over the weekend, her cousin Nanella Measures told GMA News Online.
Measures took to social media to appeal to fans to help bring her cousin Ica's situation to the band's attention, so that they could give her a shout-out during the concert.
This my cousin Ica, a crazy One Direction superfan. She saved all her allowance and got good grades just so she could go to their concert this Sunday. Sadly, on Thursday she was in an accident that's now left her in hospital. She's missing the chance of a lifetime to see One Direction in person. I know bands do shout-outs to fans all the time so it would be super cool of you guys could help us make this post reach them. A simple message to her would mean everything right now. @onedirection just 5 mins of your time to wish her a speedy recovery would make all the difference in the world for this girl. Please tag @niallhoran @niazkilam @harrystyles @louist91 @fakeliampayne @onedirection @thedanrichards in the comments below or send a tweet to the band to tell them about Ica. Her friends are trying to get the hashtag #MakeIcaSmile1D trending on Twitter. MOST OF ALL, PLEASE INCLUDE HER IN YOUR PRAYERS ???? ?
"One Direction, just five minutes of your time to wish her a speedy recovery would make all the difference in the world for this girl," Measures said in her Instagram post, using the hashtag #MakeIcaSmile1D.
Thousands of Filipino fans mobbed the Mall of Asia Open Grounds Saturday to watch One Direction's first concert, despite the band's being one man short. Zayn Malik flew back to the UK to deal with stress, the band's publicist said.
The band will perform again on Sunday night. — BM, GMA News
