Southeast Asian artists unite for fund-raising single 'Heal'
STAR CIRCUIT - Ricky Calderon (The Freeman) - September 9, 2020 - 12:00am

Filipino pride Jayda, Jona, Kyla, KZ Tandingan, Lesha, Moira Dela Torre, and Xela are collaborating with some of the most popular talents and emerging artists in Southeast Asia’s music scene — Indonesian singers Rinni Wulandari and Yura Yunita, Malaysian artists Dolla and Shalma Eliana, Singaporean talents Haneri and Haven, and Thai artist Valentina — to deliver a message of hope in their upcoming single “Heal.”

These Southeast Asian artists lend their therapeutic voices for the inspirational song produced by ABS-CBN Music International which will drop on digital streaming platforms this Friday, Sept. 11.

The “Heal” project, a first in the region, seeks to convey love and spur unity for everyone’s healing during these trying times. It was composed by ABS-CBN Music creative director Jonathan Manalo, Moophs, and Alex Godinez aka Xela. Jonathan also served as its over-all producer.

The collaboration is also a #StreamToDonate project, with all of the participating artists donating their share of fees and royalties to ABS-CBN’s “Pantawid ng Pag-ibig,” a fund-raising campaign which aims to provide relief to Filipinos who have lost their sources of livelihood due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Heal” is just one of ABS-CBN Music International’s endeavors, which seeks to introduce the unique artistry of Filipinos to global audiences and more recently, bring in international talents and music to the Philippines.

It is sad that some Nora Aunor fans are maligning Lotlot de Leon. They are bashing her on social media just because Lotlot honestly admitted that her relationship with her superstar mom is far from perfect.

Lotlot may have issues with her mom growing up but we are sure that she loves her. And she loves her siblings as well.

Some of Ate Guy’s fans have taken the cudgels for Lotlot and advised her to just ignore the bashers. As long as she knows she has truth on her side, Lotlot need not explain. What is important is how she truly feels about Ate Guy.
