People Power

Feb 25, 1986, was one of the proudest moments of my life as a Filipino. This was the day that the People Power revolution ended the Marcos dictatorship. The nonviolent movement was led by the late President Corazon Aquino.  Last night, on February 26, 2011, almost exactly 25 years later, I had the rare honor of singing for her son, our current President, Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino, at the Malacanang Palace. Invited guests included United States Ambassador to the Philippines Harry Thomas, Senator Mar Roxas, and other officials of the Philippine government and the U.S. Philippine Embassy. This performance was the highlight (so far!) of my singing career. It was an honor to sing for a President who holds the promise of change for a better Philippines.
