Bernadette Sembrano could not hold back her tears the first time she listened to Aegis sing the song "Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin," which she co-wrote with Jonathan Manalo.
In her YouTube vlog on Monday, August 24, Bernadette shared snippets of the process on how they created the song.
"One of my life's biggest SURPRISE! How did this happen that I co-wrote the lyrics to 'Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin.' It was just lately when it became a hobby to write lyrics and thanks to Jonathan Manalo for helping me reach this milestone," she shared.
Bernadette added, "Bonus pa na it's for an ABS-CBN Kapamilya Channel teleserye and Aegis pa ang kumanta! Thank you rin to my maestro Louie Ocampo na laging nandiyan to help and guide me."
After listening to Aegis perform the song live for the first time, Bernadette became emotional.
"Naiyak ako kasi iba 'yung Aegis. Thank you very much. Iba 'yung hugot... Grabe 'yung hugot. Ang sakit-sakit," Bernadette said.
The song was released on August 17.
Since it was launched, the song has already gained more than 2 million views on Facebook as of this writing.
