Moira dela Torre performed a rewritten version of her hit song "Paubaya" at the wake of former President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III on Friday, June 25.
Moira changed some of the lyrics of "Paubaya" and turned it into a 10-minute song which she sang in front of the Aquino family at the Church of the Gesu in the Ateneo de Manila University.
Noynoy's sister Kris Aquino shared that she helped Moira rewrite the song.
“It was her biggest hit but she rewrote the lyrics. Gusto ko magpasalamat kay Moira because she rewrote the lyrics so it could be dedicated to Noy,” Kris said as reported by ABS-CBN News.
Kris revealed, “This is the only time you will hear this version... I actually got my dream because I got to co-write with you [Moira]."
Kris commended Moira's rewritten lyrics of "Paubaya" saying, “Napakaganda ng pagkagawa ni Moira when she rewrote the lyrics because ito, na-shock tayong lahat with what happened."
"We all feel he was gone too soon. Lahat ata ng mga Pilipino na nagmahal sa kanya. Konting konti po sa inyo ang nakaalam ng pinagdaanan niya. Ito po ang ating way para ma-comfort ang mga sarili natin," the television host added.
PNoy passed away on June 24 due to renal disease secondary to diabetes.
