MANILA, Philippines — Kapamilya actress Angel Locsin led an all-star cast in performing “Di Niyo Ba Naririnig,” the Filipino version of the “Les Miserables” tune “Do You Hear the People Sing."

Premiered at "#SONAgKAISA," the “alternative” State of the Nation Address (SONA) streamed live at the same time as that of President Rodrigo Duterte’s SONA yesterday, the video was part of the online concert that addressed current local issues such as ABS-CBN shutdown, the anti-terror law, and the government's response to the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.



Apart from Angel, other Kapamilya celebrities in the video were Iza Calzado, Jodi Sta. Maria, Ria Atayde, Vivoree Esclito, Mylene Dizon, Agot Isidro and Enchong Dee. 

Completing the cast were musicians Noel Cabangon, Buboy Garavillo, Jim Paredes, Monique Wilson, Ebe Dancel, Bullet Dumas, Johnoy Danao, Kean Cipriano and Bituin Escalante, among others. 

The song was first translated by composer Vincent de Jesus in 2017 in the middle of the protest against human rights abuses under Duterte’s war on drugs.
