Prior to the release of ABS-CBN’s Christmas ID “Ikaw ang Liwanag at Ligaya” music video, its lyric video which was launched last November 27 catapulted to the top of YouTube Philippines’ Top 50 trending videos dislodging erstwhile leader BTS.
The new Christmas anthem underscores the importance of prayer which brings light and joy to our lives during the darkest times in our journey this year. The song, which features the voices of 20 Kapamliya artists, highlights the love we share to our fellowmen and our gratitude to God, the primary source of light and joy of every family.
Another shining feature of the lyric video is the various translations of “liwanag” and “ligaya” to spread the inspiring message around the world this Christmas. Some of the featured languages include Waray, Kapampangan, Maguindanao, Italian, Korean, and Arabic, among others.
Adding sparkle to the song are Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, Ogie Alcasid, Morissette Amon, Bamboo, Janine Berdin, Darren Espanto, Vice Ganda, Sarah Geronimo, Toni Gonzaga, Jona, Moira, Martin Nievera, Elha Nympha, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Inigo Pascual, Angeline Quinto, Lea Salonga, Erik Santos, KZ Tandingan, at Gary Valenciano. Robert Labayen and Love Rose De Leon wrote the Christmas song with music by Thyro Alfaro.
The ABS-CBN Christmas ID lyric video (“Ikaw Ang Liwanag at Ligaya”) was first seen on iWantTFC and then on various ABS-CBN platforms including the network’s official YouTube channel. The highly anticipated music video for the ABS-CBN Christmas ID is slated to premiere this Tuesday (December 1).
