MANILA, Philippines -- "Kwento ng Pasko," the full theme song of ABS-CBN's highly anticipated Christmas station ID for 2012, has been released online.
A behind-the-scenes recording of the music video was uploaded on ABS-CBN's official account on YouTube.
Robert Labayen wrote the song.
Composed by Marcus Davis Jr. and Amber Davis, "Kwento ng Pasko," as seen in the video, was performed by several Kapamilya singing talents including Nyoy Violante, Angeline Quinto, Vina Morales, Martin Nievera, Sarah Geronimo and Zsa Zsa Padilla.
Also seen recording the theme song are Yeng Constantino, Christian Bautista, Erik Santos, Jed Madela, Billy Crawford, Aiza Seguerra, Piolo Pascual, Sitti, Juris, Richard Poon, Princess Velasco, Marcelito Pomoy, KZ Tandingan, Jovit Baldivino, Bugoy Drilon, Daniel Padilla and Bamboo.
"Kwento ng Pasko" continues ABS-CBN's tradition of coming up with inspirational corporate slogans in time for the holidays.
The Kapamilya network has gathered its film, TV and news personalities for its annual Christmas station ID, which is set to premiere after "TV Patrol" on Wednesday (October 17).
In recent years, songs in ABS-CBN's Christmas station IDs have become big hits among Filipinos during the holidays.
The popular tune "Bro, Ikaw ang Star ng Pasko," the Kapamilya network's Christmas theme song in 2009, sought to inspire Filipinos after the "Ondoy" tragedy that hit parts of the country.
This was followed by "Ngayong Pasko Magniningning ang Pilipino" (2010), which took on the themes of community and dreams; and "Da Best ang Pasko ng Pilipino" (2011), which highlighted the thriving relationships between overseas Filipino workers and their families .
