Warrior is a Child and This is the Moment : That's my younger Brother!

Why do "Pinoys" or Filipinos love to sing?

Is it because we have so much problems around us and the way to escape from them is to sing? Or are we just so gifted by nature that we always outshine other nationalities in international competitions? Go anywhere in the Philippines and you'll never miss to hear a blaring karaoke in a corner, be it in a humble sari-sari store or in exquisite bar -- we just love it.

We sing because, I think it is who we are. It is our culture to hum, or sing, or mumble few words even if we know or acknowledge that there are times music doesn't like us. Who cares? We have the passion for music. We love to sing.

We want to watch singing competitions on TV. We want our children to join every inter-barangay amateur singing contest as soon as they can memorize the lyrics. We sing however and anywhere we want: in the office; the bathroom; as we walk along corridors; in front of the mirror; the ship or airplane; inside the coffee shop while having cappuccino; in the comfort of our rooms, cars, toilets; in the kitchen as we cook; in the living room as we sweep the floor, wipe the table, read magazines; in a bus, jeepney, kalesa; on motorcycles and carabaos; along busy sidewalks on our lazy walks; in the plaza with our lovey-dovey sweetie-pie; inside elevators, restaurants, bars, hotels, public toilets; in bed while having sex; on swings and rocking chairs, on top of the hill and the bottom of the sea; in our backyard while pulling the weeds or planting crops. If given the chance to go to space or to other planets in our solar system, we will still be singing there. That's how strong our allegiance to music proves to be.

Too sad though that only few have made it to Hollywood and international stardom.

Anyway, I have these video of my younger brother when he got his first MTV video in one of biggest network in Philippines own rendition of the song "Warrior is a Child" Galing talaga ng Pinoy!

This Video was taken in a famous Bar and Restaurant in Manila "Music 21 Plaza", my younger brother is the one singing, you just cant see him cause is kind of dark!! His own version of "This is the Moment".

Here's a clearer picture of my younger brother...he's adorable and sweet! just like me...
