Filipinos from Various Sectors Shine in ABS-CBN’s Christmas ID

Inspiring Filipinos from different sectors who spread love and hope despite the challenges brought by the pandemic were given the spotlight in ABS-CBN’s “Andito Tayo Para sa Isa’t Isa: Ang Christmas ID ng Pilipino.”

Together with Kapamilya stars, the stories of families, the youth, teachers, medical frontliners, OFWs, community heroes, drivers, economic frontliners, and safety and security personnel sparkled brightly in the music video that was launched this Friday night (November 12) on “TV Patrol.”

Their different experiences, which were highlighted in the Christmas ID ng Pilipino, only proved that there will be an end to this long and dark tunnel, if we hope, pray to God, and continue to be there for each other as one family. The music video is also a tribute to the hero in every one of us, because no part is too small in this fight to survive the biggest catastrophe of our generation.

Joining them in sharing their touching stories were ABS-CBN’s brightest stars including Ogie and Regine Alcasid, Kathryn Bernardo, Andrea Brillantes, Sharon Cuneta, Seth Fedelin, Vice Ganda, Sarah Geronimo, Angel Locsin, Belle Mariano, Coco Martin, Martin Nievera, Daniel Padilla, Donny Pangilinan, Piolo Pascual, and Gary Valenciano.

Because it is now the holiday tradition of Filipinos to create their own version of ABS-CBN’s CIDs, ABS-CBN is inviting the public to be part of the Christmas ID ng Pilipino by joining the #ChristmasIDChallenge.
