“Maraming Salamat po Mahal na Poong Nazareno🙏 Thank you Makati Chapter. #BlackNazarene,” wrote Angeline Quinto in the caption of the video showing on the Black Nazarene carozza. 

The singer actress is seen being helped by people around the Nazareno. Seconds later, Angeline alights the carozza to cheers from the crowd.

Angeline Quinto was just one of millions of Black Nazarene devotees who joined Traslacion 2017. According to estimates, around 15 to 18 million devotees participated in this year’s 22-hour long journey of the miraculous Black Nazarene image from the Quirino Grandstand to the Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene in Quiapo.
