MANILA—Hitmaker Moira dela Torre expressed through a song her message of support for ABS-CBN on Wednesday, as more broadcast platforms of her home network have been forced shut by the government.
On Tuesday, separate cease-and-desist orders from the National Telecommunications Commission directed ABS-CBN to stop operating its digital TV transmission in Metro Manila using channel 43 (TVPlus), as well as Sky Cable Corp.'s SKYdirect.
On Twitter, dela Torre shared a video of her performing "Hanggang sa Huli," a song about commitment and standing by someone despite challenges.
"To my ABS-CBN family, as the seasons get harder and harder, I hope you remember that this is all it's gonna be — a hard season," dela Torre captioned the video.
"Because at the end of the day, whatever other people might say about our family, this is always what we're gonna be, a family."
Dela Torre, 26, has been a Kapamilya since 2017. Besides being an "ASAP Natin 'To" regular and a judge in "Idol Philippines," her last two studio albums — "Malaya" and "Patawad" — were released by ABS-CBN's Star Music.
The latest blow to the network came only a month after ABS-CBN was ordered to halt its free-TV and radio broadcast, affecting the job security of some 11,000 employees amid a pandemic that's already impacted industries and livelihood.
