ABS-CBN has released a song titled “Isang Laban, Isan Bayan” that is being offered to People’s Champion Manny Pacquiao in the network’s ongoing “Isang Bayan Para Kay Pacman campaign.”
The song encapsulates the feeling of unity that has pervaded the Filipinos since the announcement of his biggest fight. As the chorus of the song says, “Isang Laban, Isang Bayan/Pagsigawan sa buong mundo ang karangalan/Isang Laban, Isang Bayan/Sama sama ang Pilipino/Angat sa buong mundo!”
It was performed live for the first time by Yeng Constantino, along with rapper Quest, with various ABS-CBN stars on the noontime weekday program It’s Showtime.
“Isang Laban, Isang Bayan” is a collaboration between Star Music’s Jonathan Manalo, Quest, arranged by KidWolf and sang by Constantino, in just two days’ notice for free, going all out for their love of Pacquiao and the country. The song will serve as the Kapamilya network’s war song to pump up the Pacman in the biggest fight of his career.
“Let us continue showing the world that the People’s Champion is not fighting alone. We have to show the world that with every punch he throws, the power of the Filipinos are with him so keep sending in those punches,” urged ABS-CBN head for sports Dino Laurena.
ABS-CBN also held a cheer rally and concert for Pacman on Saturday titled Bida Kapamilya: Isang Bayan Para kay Pacman, where music video of the song was premiered.
The network invites the public to show their support to the People’s Champ via “Punch Ng Bayan” on the oneforpacman.abs-cbn.com website or by tweeting and posting on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #OneForPacman. The punches collected have gone over 35,000,000 at the beginning of the week.
