Here are the performances at President Cory Aquino’s Funeral:
ANG BAYAN KO
Sang by Lea Salonga! I thought I was watching her at The Broadway!
I must admit the way Martin and Regine sing this song while the funeral truck is moving slowly was indeed a very touching moment. The timing, the execution and the yellow confetti… this could win you a VMA!
Ang lumalaban kay Regine sa pagtili!
This could’ve been a moment for Sarah Geronimo as the song really blends to her voice but for some reason she has chosen to lower down her voice. Naubusan ng hangin ang ate niyo. But, it really gives me goosebumps and I feel like in 1986 again!
HANDOG NG PILIPINO SA MUNDO
What’s with Danny Javier? Ang lola Regine mo bumibirit, in fairness bumagay naman… Lea stands out on this!
Yesterday was indeed a very sad/happy, tiring and peaceful day not just for the Aquino’s but also for the entire Filipinos. For the past four days, I am hooked to ANC watching over the happenings of President Aquino’s death. Like what I’ve said, even if I am not in any way related to them, I felt the sadness of losing the best President of the Philippines.
I must agree with the Aquino’s of turning down the offer of Malacañang of a State Funeral. What happened in Manila Cathedral yesterday was indeed every President’s dream of having in times of their death.
Who wouldn’t wanna have some International Officials attending your Funeral mass? A-Lister artists singing your favorite songs? And socialites doing some catwalk as if they are attending a Fashion Week… This was indeed the best funeral I have ever seen…
ABS-CBN have done an amazing coverage to the Unity of the Filipinos for Cory’s death. I got goosebumps when I heard those songs from Edsa Revolution and it feels like 1986. Napashout out tuloy ako sa facebook na “Ang sarap maging Pilipino!” but of course, just for the very second.
Look at this video, this is better than Ninoy’s death! The two might have been battling over in heaven on who has the better funeral turn out. Just kidding!
State Funeral my ass, this was indeed a People’s Funeral!
