Kapamilya singer Darren Espanto ended the year with an inspiring move as he recorded his song “Believe in Christmas” with the help of his friends to raise funds for the benefit of Filipino children.
Seeking help from his friends, King of Talk Boy Abunda opened the music video with an inspiring message about the purpose of the fundraising event.
“The music video you are about to watch is for the benefit of Save the Children Philippines which is currently working on relief efforts for the victims of typhoons, floods, and natural disasters and also for the education of young people in the Philippines who cannot afford to go to school,” he said.
He added: “With this music video, we also want to deliver the message that as a people, we should continue to hope, that we should continue to believe in ourselves, with others, in God. To believe that we will come out in these trying times better people, and hopefully, in a better world.”
Among those who performed include AC Bonifacio, Jayda Avanzado, Ogie Alcasid, Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, Elha Nympha, Gary Valenciano, Martin Nievera, and Zack Tabudlo.
Darren’s closest friends in showbiz — including Edward Barber, Maymay Entrata, Vicki Belo, Hayden Kho Jr., Scarlet Snow Belo, and Robi Domingo — also appeared in the music video.
Meanwhile, fellow Universal Music Group artists outside the Philippines such as Alexander 23, LYRA, Yung Raja, Violette Wautier, and Johnny Orlando were among those who gave messages of hope.
