November 20, 2013 by Gian Carlo Vizcarra
Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez has recently launched a number of special projects for the benefit of the Typhoon Yolanda victims like the auction of her personal items. Aside from this, Universal Records and the Songbird recently released the album “Hulog Ka Ng Langit,” part of its proceed goes to Philippine Red Cross.
The album, composed of songs that give inspiration to wives and mothers, has the beautifully-penned Hulog Ka Ng Langit as debut single and title track of the album. The song truly embodies what the album is all about – unconditional love between husbands and wives, and mothers to children.
“I am a mommy and I thought it’ll be nice to dedicate a whole album for my son. I waited him for so long,” says Regine, but she quickly clarified that, “Hulong Ka Ng Langit is actually just not for him. The album also has a lot of love songs, which you can dedicate to your loved ones.”
Regine recounts that when work has started for the album, the whole team was leaning towards making a baby album. The songbird, however, felt that love songs that have more general messages to be included in the album.
“The challenge really was to have a special, not-so-typical baby album,” shares Regine. “An album that can be appreciated by everyone – kids, parents, lovers, and family.”
With Regine’s gift of amazing vocals, she has given new life to songs like Hele Ni Inay, Someone’s Waiting For You, Happiness, You, God Gave Me You and Just The Way You Are, a duet with husband Ogie Alcasid. The songs included in the album also feature some of the best arrangers, musicians in the country.
Hulog Ka Ng Langit promises to give the public an inspiration to continuously hope for their own happiness with people they truly love and care for.
“I don’t usually say this, pero ang ganda-ganda ng album,” closes Regine. “It is very memorable because, when I was doing the album, I was also going through some stuff. This album is special and memorable because I dedicate this to my son, husband, family, and loved ones.”
