Exactly 12 days before Christmas, viewers are in for an early holiday treat as GMA premieres a tale of love, longing, family and forgiveness in its two-part Christmas musical-drama special Himig ng Pasko.
Airing today and December 20, Himig ng Pasko gathers together a powerful ensemble of some of the country’s A-list performers led by Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, Ariel Rivera and Julie Anne San Jose, together with Rachel Alejandro, Rita de Guzman, Jeric Gonzales, Gerald Santos, and Joey Paras.
Viewers can sing to their hearts content as the show highlights the artists’ rendition of some of the country’s favorite Christmas songs including “Kumukutikutitap,” “Noche Buena,” “Himig ng Pasko,” “Simbang Gabi,” “Christmas Bonus,” “Jingle Bells,” “Sana Ngayong Pasko,” and “Pasko na Sinta Ko.” Aside from these, Himig ng Pasko also unveils an original composition titled “Hiling,” which will be performed by Regine.
It tells the story of Belen (Regine), an OFW who returns to her hometown after ten years of working as a singer abroad. She has three wishes in mind—to get closer to her daughter Christiana (Julie Anne), to revive the family’s parol-making business, and to rekindle relationship with her high school sweetheart Joseph (Ariel).
Discover how music can heal all wounds and unite a family this Christmas. Himig ng Pasko premieres tonight at 8:30 p.m. on GMA7.
