Local artists sing hope for elections in ‘Sana Naman, Taumbayan’
MANILA, Philippines — Local artists have come together to sing for hope for the upcoming elections in a new song titled “Sana Naman, Taumbayan.”
Composer of “Sana Naman, Taumbayan” Louie Ocampo posted the song Wednesday via his Instagram page.
The song was written by singer-songwriter Joey Ayala and produced by radio broadcaster Noel Ferrer and The Company member Moy Ortiz.
Singers who took part in recording the song were National Artist for Music Ryan Cayabyab, Jamie Rivera, Jed Madela, Robert Seña, Isay Alvarez Seña, Maysh Baay of Moonstar88, Myke Salomon, Reuben Laurente, Jay Durias, Mitch Valdes, Mass Appeal Choir, The Company, Agot Isidro and Bayang Barrios.
In an Instagram video, Ocampo said he never thought he would be able to release this song and hoped that many people would listen to it.
“Akala ko talaga, hindi na ito matutuloy. I understand naman people are busy and nataon pa that I’m really scheduled to be with my kids abroad. So, I thought it’ll just stay as a demo song with my voice and my daughter’s voice and bahala na. I feel, sa tamang panahon, I hope more people will hear this song,” Ocampo said.
He also expressed thanks to the people who took part in recording the song, saying “I am very grateful to the people who contributed their time and effort and bravery in making a stand for clean and honest, orderly and peaceful elections that transcends our individual beliefs.” /muf
