Carol Banawa and Josh Santana — who starred in the ABS-CBN soap opera Bituin — reunited for a duet of the song “Kailangan Kita.”
Josh and Carol’s voices seamlessly blended while the two belted out the lyrics to the song.
Meanwhile, the visuals for the song cover featured scenes the two shared together on the show.
Watch the video below:
Born Michael Alexander Alvarez Pamular, he decided to use the screen name Josh Santana following the popularity he achieved on the show.
In 2005, he temporarily left show business after releasing the theme song of the reality love-team search “Qpids.”
In an interview with CNN Philippines in 2011, he shared why he eventually pursued a career in medicine after a moment he shared with his father in a hospital in 2011.
He is also known as the voice behind the theme song of the Tagalized version of Meteor Garden — “Biyahe” — which is the local equivalent of “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”
Carol, on the other hand, is recognized as one of the most successful OPM artists in the country.
She left the Philippines for the US after a nearly two-decade-long career in the country. She became a registered nurse in the US in 2018.
Carol played Melody Sandoval while Josh played himself in the hit series which aired on ABS-CBN between 2002 and 2003. It replaced the top-rating Kapamilya serye Pangako Sa’ Yo.
Bituin is also known for being one of the shows of the Kapamilya network that had a crossover with the 2003 teleserye Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay in 2003.
