Video of Lea Salonga Singing "Bayan Ko" at President Corazon Aquino's Funeral

Among the singers and songs sang in the funeral of President Corazon Aquino, Lea Salonga’s rendition of “Bayan Ko” was the one I found most moving. I am pretty sure digital camcorders were recording when she sang this very appropriate song.

Lea Salonga’s choice of “Bayan Ko” was appropriate because “Tita” Cory was a person who chose in her own life to fight for the country’s democracy and she answered the people’s call in the 80’s to lead in strengthening democracy in the Philippines.

As we Filipinos pay our respects to the Aquino family, we also give her the honor she is due and other artists who sang in Tita Cory’s funeral honor her through the songs they rendered. But, again, great job for Lea Salonga for her dramatic interpretation of “Bayan Ko”.
