The Philippine National Anthem

This is the most moving version of Lupang Hinirang, our Philippine National Anthem. It is a slower and more solemn version of our national anthem, originally meant to be sung with a marching cadence. Watching it may move you to tears with the simple message it is trying to convey.

This rendition of Lupang Hinirang is intended for reflection. It is not meant to replace the official anthem normally played as a march.

Recently a talented and nationally known film director, Mae Paner, crafted a new and moving version of our national anthem. This unusual audio visual presentation of “Lupang Hinirang”* has been shown many times in various events and has consistently touched the hearts and minds of viewers to the point of tears of awakening and gratefulness.

Because of its consistent positive impact, PAGASA and Ehem! have decided to make this version of “Lupang Hinirang” available nationwide as a reflection piece to trigger a deeper awareness of oneself in relation to the country and encourage the emergence of positive images of the Philippine future.[source and video link]

This is a very moving advocacy and it inspires a lot of hope for crippled yet endearing nation. I urge you to pass this video on through the internet.
