Today marks the first anniversary of a tragedy that took thousands of lives and affected millions. Supertyphoon Haiyan/Yolanda destroyed everything on its path.

But not the Filipino spirit.


Slowly, the affected cities are standing up. Yes, we are slowly moving on.


Thanks to the countless modern-heroes of our lifetime. People from around the world joined hands and did everything they can -big or small contributions – to help other people in catastrophe. That’s humanity at work!



In behalf of everyone affected by this tragedy, THANK YOU. You know who you are. We may not know you. You may be an anonymous and unrecognized. Your name may not be here on this site – but rest assured, your good deed was written in the book of Heavens. And in our hearts, you are deeply appreciated. Forever.

Power by Rainbow Project for Yolanda Survivors

Published on Dec 25, 2013 on youtube.

A collaboration of some of Bulacan’s most enduring alternative bands and artists, representing different genres of music, The Power has been a staple original of the local bluesrock band, Mojorising since 2003. Originally a song of personal freedom and transformation, the song, penned by the Mojo’s frontman, Joel Bagay, had now become a message of Hope,Sharing,and Love for the people of Yolanda-stricken provinces in Central Philippines. Through the help of other artists, led by Bluewish front couple Kram and Yapi Calalang, The Rainbow Project was born to recast The Power song into a call for active and sustained empathy for the people of Visayas. With the help of Nolit Abanilla of Indie Pinoy, the song was included in a 5 Volume album (Volume 4:Track 11) called The Yolanda Project.

Proceeds from online downloads of the songs or albums from different online music stores, would go directly to victims of Typhoon Yolanda. And as Power rallies people to find within the power to feel, heal, and share, artists of the Rainbow Project invite everyone with a love for alternative, independent music to make their passion count by downloading and promoting songs from the links below.

“Seek and we shall find. Seek within.”

“The Prayer” for the Philippines: A Viral Video for a Cause

Published on Dec 17, 2013

Donate to Red Cross:  Filipino YouTube singers unite for typhoon relief — a deeply touching collaboration of some of the best and most unique Philippine voices on YouTube (feat. viral stars such as Zendee ‘random girl’ & Aldrich Talonding).
This very special charity video could not have happened were it not for the internet as more than a dozen Filipino YT singers combined voices for a cause.
Conceptualized, arranged and edited by Derek Wanner (GRNMNGO) GRNMNGO – the viral company
In the weeks since the historic super typhoon Haiyan caused such carnage in the Philippines, we have been working tirelessly to assemble together some of the most gifted Filipino singers that can be found online for a very special viral video collaboration.
Filipinos have become renown the world over for their freakishly good singing ability, so it only made sense to put their vocal talents to use for the good of a country, which has had to endure so much of late. It took over 500 emails to put everything together from start to finish, but ultimately more than a dozen “Filipino YouTube singers” from across the globe enthusiastically dedicated their time and talents to this project, which is intended to help raise global awareness for the still ongoing need for aid and relief in the most hard hit areas in the country.
Notable participants in this video include Zendee ‘the Random Girl’ Tenerefe and Aldrich Talonding, both of whom landed an appearance on the Ellen Show as a result of their respective viral videos. Zendee got the call from Ellen when a video of her singing Karaoke in a local mall chalked up millions of views on YouTube, while little Aldrich inspired Ellen to fly him in all the way from the Philippines on the strength of a crudely videotaped rendition of Dance with my Father, which was worthy of the late great Luther Vandross himself.
A pair of American Idol ‘veterans’ are also in the mix in the form of Marvin Calderon Jr and Jett Hermano, while talented Filipino singers from as far away as Austria and Australia also took the time to record and send in footage of themselves singing different parts of ‘The Prayer’, a duet made famous by Celine Dion & Andrea Bocelli. The material was then painstakingly edited together and sound mastered to form an utterly moving and compelling ‘virtual choir’, which has plenty of zeitgeist due to only being made possible in the age of social media.
The video closes with a heart-wrenching solo by the latest product of the Philippines to have gone viral internationally as a result of her penchant for singing – Joyce Jimenez, an 11-year-old blind girl from a far flung province in the Philippines, who captured the hearts of netizens around the world last month when her tender and soulful rendition of Miley Cyrus’ Wrecking Ball.
A full list of participants can be found below along with links to their respective YouTube channels. Maraming salamat po to the truly gifted artists who donated their talents and time without a moment’s hesitation. And a very big thank you to my friends and family for their generous contributions, without which this video would not have been possible.
