Christian Bautista Records Song for Cory

ABS-CBN - Friday, July 31

MANILA - Singer Christian Bautista has recorded a special song dedicated to former president Corazon "Cory" Aquino, who has been battling with colon cancer for the past year. Bautista, a pop and ballad crooner, said he just recorded his version of the song "I Have Fallen In Love With The Same Woman Three Times" - the title of a love poem written by Aquino's late husband Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino, Jr. The poem became a song in 1989 when Pinoy music legend Jose Mari Chan created a melody for it and included it in his hit album "Constant Change." Bautista recorded his own version, he said, as a "song of love" for Aquino. "This is actually Jose Marie Chan's. Pinagawan lang ako ng bagong version siguro for this generation. And for that to happen, napakalaking honor talaga. Parang I'm just an instrument ng past great songs na nagawa," Bautista said. Bautista shared that he already met Chan and talked about recording another version of the song. "Ang sabi niya it's one way of perpetuating his songs, or this song, for this generation. And I'm just glad na napili ako," he said. Also known as "the romantic balladeer", Bautista shared his hope and prayers for the recovery of the former president. "Tita Cory, I really hope that you will get [well] soon. Me and my family are praying for you. And to the [Aquino] family din. We are praying for you. We pray for God's healing and God's will and the whole natoin is behind you, the whole world is behind you, and we are with you," Bautista said.
