In the aftermath of typhoon Ondoy and Pepeng, Rico Blanco writes a song to boost the moral of the Filipinos and raise additional funds for the relief efforts. Former Rivermaya band member posted the announcement a while ago in Facebook including a link to free downloads of the song.

Countless Filipinos have heroically gone out of their way to help our brothers and sisters in this time of need. This is just my humble contribution as a singer and musician. I hope, in my own little way, I can …help raise additional funds for our countrymen affected by the typhoons, and perhaps give a little boost to their morale to help them get back on their feet again.

I am offering a completely new song, ‘Bangon’ as a free download. ( http://amillionflames.multiply.com/mu or http://www.myspace.com/ricoblancomusic) Hopefully it will also raise some badly needed funds through your donations. Warner Music Philippines is currently helping me set up a bank account to accomodate your cash donations as well as a Paypal account for those of you who wish to help from overseas. These should be up very very soon so please stay tuned for announcements on http://www.ricoblanco.com.ph.

For those who wish to donate now, you can text Bangon to 5677. I am waiving all royalties, the amount of which will go to our countrymen affected by the typhoons.Please feel free to download the track, use it, MAKE YOUR OWN VIDEOS, and share with your friends to spread the message of hope to everyone.

Thank you for your kindness. God bless. Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!

ps. I’d like to thank my friends who swiftly volunteered their services, free of charge, to help me make this song come to life – drummer Robert Dela Cruz, bassist Berns Cuevas, Blue Light studios, Angee Rozul, Tracks studios.

LYRICS:

pinaluhod tayo,
sa isang hagupit
niragasa, sinalanta,
pinaluha

humupa ang unos, isang bahaghari!
dala ng bukang liwayway-
pag-ibig
pagkakaisa

BANGON
pilipinas kong mahal
akay ang pananampalataya sa may kapal
AHON
buhay sa yong dugo
ang tibay na tatak ng tunay na Pilipino

at nagising ang bayanihan
milyon milyon naging isa
walang kami
walang kayo
walang sila
tanging ligaya
ay pag alay ng sarili sa iba

BANGON
pilipinas kong mahal
akay ng pananampalataya sa may kapal
AHON
taglay ng yong dugo
ang tibay na tatak ng tunay na Pilipino

bridge:
hindi ka namin iiwan
hindi tayo susuko!
lulusong tayo’t magtatagumpay
magtatagumpay!

BANGON
pilipinas kong mahal
akay ang pananampalataya sa may kapal
AHON
buhay sa yong dugo
ang tibay na tatak ng tunay na Pilipino

coda:
lahat nitong mga pagsubok
ay ating kayang lagpasan
lahat nitong mga pagsubok
ay ating kayang lagpasan
