The song that he just composed was released on ASAP Sunday afternoon (CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO). Writing Bangon is Rico’s own little way of getting support and donations to help the victims of Ondoy and Pepeng who recently destructed millions of properties leaving thousands of people homeless.
Here is the press release of Bangon from Rico Blanco’s official website:
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 they badly need, 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. Hopefully it will alsoraise 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.
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, and share with your friends to spread the message of hope to everyone.
Thank you for your kindness. God bless. Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!
