Just posted — a “We are the World” type song by  written by Armand TJ and performed by Filipino teens from the devastated areas of the Visayas.  Only 6,000 views now as I post it.  I truly hope that we can all get together and make it go viral.  It’s beautiful …..and a tiny bit edgy which I love. Feels very contemporary, and not excessively sweet.  These kids rock. Help spread this.

    There can be no words to explain the level of devastation that took place significantly in the Visayas. But, what is even more incredible than the Typhoon is the response from the Filipino people all over this world, and those who support us. These young kids took a song and have made it into an ever lasting tune that will be sung until the last nipa hut, concrete wall, tin roof, and dusty roads leading to home get replaced, hopefully with new material that can withstand gale force winds. I am very proud to be of Filipino heritage….I am proud of all Filipinos that extended their hands to, and for each other.

  8. Great spirit! That’s a very nice ‘Thanks to the World’. But I would like to request to reverse the order of the flag logo. Can you make the ‘Arrow Flag logo point UPWARDS instead of pointing downwards? Thanks my fellow ‘Waray’.
