OPM artists use their gift of music to express their support for President-Elect Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III. Bagong Pilipinas, a new song composed by Ogie Alcasid and Noel Cabangon will be featured on the inauguration of the new President.
The song will be performed by Noel Cabangon, Jim Paredes, Gary Valenciano, Ogie Alcasid, Regine Velasquez, Nina, Jed Madela and Christian Bautista-- an ensemble that Gary V. describes as “a good mix of Pinoy artists, both young and seasoned.
Senior Grand Champion Performer of the World Jed Madela is honored to be part of this special performance. “To be part of such a powerhouse of a song for a very special event, sobra kang honored. Just being chosen, sobrang sobrang happy ako,” he says.
Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano is also very proud of the music industry’s contribution to the country’s historic event. “It’s not for me…it’s not for one particular artist, it’s for all of us as a nation. So God Bless us all.”
