Rico Blanco releases new song “Bangon” – all royalties waived in exchange for donations!

In true Rico Blanco form! Rico, a former Rivermaya vocalist, is known for his advocacies and selfless deeds. He’s an active campaigner of a lot of causes – especially those that aim to champion the Filipino spirit.

This time around, this very talented Filipino musician is helping raise additional funds for fellow Pinoys affected by typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng by coming up with the new song entitled “Bangon” – completely FREE. In exchange for a free download of Bangon, Rico’s hoping that people will donate.

Trust me, the song is amazing, beautiful work that only a Rico Blanco can produce!

The very first time I heard it, I got goosebumps all over! It’s a truly inspiring song and you cannot help but feel the spirit of volunteerism, faith and hope!

While future announcements will be made in Rico’s official website, you may now send in your donations via text. Just key in “BANGON” and send to 5677. Rico Blanco is waiving all royalties, the amount of which will go to our countrymen affected by the typhoons.

Kudos to Rico Blanco and his friends who also volunteered their services — drummer Robert Dela Cruz, bassist Berns Cuevas, Blue Light studios, Angee Rozul, Tracks studios.

Meanwhile, here are the lyrics to the new Rico Blanco song “Bangon.” An unofficial video can also be found below.

Just a quick note — one of my fondest memories of Rico Blanco and his strong belief in causes that affect many was when he agreed to send in a video greeting the people of Bukidnon during one of the World AIDS Day events I organized not too long ago. Despite his super hectic schedule at that time, he managed to come up with the video and send it to me via email…and even helped me promote the event! Suffice it to say, his video surprised (and definitely made a lot of people so happy!) the audience. I will always be grateful for what he did for me 🙂 Thank you Rico!

To you Rico Blanco — thank you for sharing your gift. Padayon! (continue!)

pinaluhod tayo,
sa isang hagupit
niragasa, sinalanta,
pinaluha

humupa ang unos, isang bahaghari!
dala ng bukang liwayway-
pag-ibig
pagkakaisa

BANGON
pilipinas kong mahal
akay ang pananampalataya sa may kapal
AHON
buhay sa yong dugo
ang tibay na tatak ng tunay na Pilipino

at nagising ang bayanihan
milyon milyon naging isa
walang kami
walang kayo
walang sila
tanging ligaya
ay pag alay ng sarili sa iba

BANGON
pilipinas kong mahal
akay ng pananampalataya sa may kapal
AHON
taglay ng yong dugo
ang tibay na tatak ng tunay na Pilipino

bridge:
hindi ka namin iiwan
hindi tayo susuko!
lulusong tayo’t magtatagumpay
magtatagumpay!

BANGON
pilipinas kong mahal
akay ang pananampalataya sa may kapal
AHON
buhay sa yong dugo
ang tibay na tatak ng tunay na Pilipino

coda:
lahat nitong mga pagsubok
ay ating kayang lagpasan
lahat nitong mga pagsubok
ay ating kayang lagpasan
