Here I go Lord. It’s been a while since I’ve last represented the Philippines 🇵🇭 in a musical event such as the 23rd Asian Television Awards. What an honor it’s going to be for me and @kianavee. But we go with the knowledge that all this is Your will; that all this is because of some great purpose You’ve established in us for your glory. Be with us every step of the way Lord. It’s probably the biggest event I’m ever going to partake of Lord. An estimated 2 billion people will be watching from all over Asia. Thank you Lord. I’m doing all this for You🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
