Actress Dimples Romana has released a new song just in time for her birthday.
Titled "Hawak Ko Ang Kamay Mo," the song is dedicated to frontliners and Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs)—the "brave men and women fighting every day to protect and provide for their families."
The original composition, which was performed by Dimples herself, was uploaded on YouTube on Friday, November 13, or on the day of her 36th birthday.
"Today 36 years ago, my mama gave birth to me. Today I am 36. But today isn’t about me. Bata pa lang kami bago pa namatay si Papa, he taught us the importance of thinking of ourselves less and more of other people—pamilya man o hindi. Dahil ang sabi niya, ang pagmamahal ng Diyos ay hindi namimili. Na ang bawat isa sa atin, kadugo man natin o hindi ay kakitaan dapat natin ng mukha ng Diyos sa tuwing minamasdan natin sila. He used to say that if we learn the value of kindness, we will never run out of love within us and around us. We will never feel alone. Our cup of blessings will never run dry," she said in an Instagram post.
"He was right. Today, I share with you a gift to all the people who wake up every morning, fighting their demons, facing their fears, using their God-given talents, skills and strength to serve others, para sa pamilya, DAHIL sa pamilya. Today I honor YOU —the men and women who wake up every day, putting their lives on the line to show us what it's really like to be kind, to be human. My team and I put a lot of love into this video, and I pray this will warm your hearts, feel our gratitude and be inspired. You are not alone, hawak natin ang kamay ng isa’t isa," she added.
"Hawak Ko Ang Kamay Mo," Dimples' first-ever music release, is produced by Jeff Hernandez and Mony Romana of Believe Digital.
