MANILA – National Artist for Music Ryan Cayabyab has written a new song just in time for his birthday.
Titled “Kapit Lahat,” the song is Cayabyab’s gift to the nation as it continues to struggle with the coronavirus pandemic.
The original composition, which was brought to life by the Ryan Cayabyab Singers, was uploaded on YouTube on May 3 or a day before he turned 66 years old.
It was also shown as part of a special edition of “Bayanihan, Musikahan” which aired on ABS-CBN on Sunday.
"Bayanihan, Musikahan" is a donation platform featuring dozens of artists in concert from their home. As of writing, the project has raised almost P67 million since it was launched on March 18.
