When I used to sing


"...biyayang bigay na galing sa Diyos..."
I stumbled upon this youtube "video" of a recording of a song I did way back when i was still in the University. It's called "Lagi na Lang" ("As Always") and was written and composed by Pastor Norman Dagdag, Drums, Acoustic Taylor guitar, and sound engineering by Mr. Ike Heredia, Mixed and Recorded @ STUDIO 7 Grand Villas, Quezon City.

Lead vocals and back-up vocals by your truly. :D
This was 2nd of 3 songs we recorded, and was the most fun to do. Haha!

Hope you watch and leave a comment!




A quick translation for non-Filipinos:

I hear your voice, and I am with you
You bring treasures overflowing
I am thankful for all the blessings that come
You show a path that is true
You care for and protect me
Day and night you love me

Your power moves my life
Your blessing are never ending
Always, for always

  12. Superb singing voice, Rey. Do you do videocasting? Podcasting? It will power your blog, I think. It's your strong points. Please consider that as an option.

    I would if I were as talented. Go for it. You'll have the blogosphere at the palm of your hands, believe me.

    That's all...Good morning na pala. Ahahaha. Ano ba ito. ",)
