Shortly after being released on bail, Pura Luka Vega delivered a lip-sync performance of the song “The Prayer” with their mother at a fundraising event.

Donning a white gown and golden headdress, Pura Luka held hands with their mother Esther while doing a lip-sync performance of Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli’s “The Prayer” at an events place, as seen on @MxNoelle’s X (formerly Twitter) page last Sunday, Oct. 8.

Pura Luka, whose real name is Amadeus Fernando Pagente, goes by the pronouns they/them. Their appearance took place a few days after their arrest in Manila, after which he was released on bail last Oct. 7, three days later, although their motion for bail was granted the day prior.

“Pura Luka Vega with their mom performing ‘The Prayer’ #DragIsArt #DragIsNotACrime #AcquitPuraLukaVega,” the post read.

Another video from @FEUAdvocate on X showed Esther wiping her tears during the performance while cheers can be heard from the audience.

Political scientist Cleve Arguelles also uploaded a photo of Pura Luka and their mother onstage.

The fundraiser event, dubbed as “NKKLK,” was organized by “Drag Den Philippines” season one winner Naia Black, which included various performances from drag queens.

Among the familiar names included were “Drag Race Philippines” season one winner Precious Paula Nicole, Turing, Veruschka Levels, Lady Morgana, Corazon Filipinas, and Aries Night, to name a few.
