“Hinahanap-hanap kita, Manila
Ang ingay mong kay sarap sa tenga
Mga JEEPNEY mong nagliliparan
Mga babae mong naggagandahan…”
Modernized but iconic designed Francisco Jeepney featured in the great and historical rendition of the world famous “Manila” by Hotdog by Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano and award winning female vocalist Armi Millare of Up Dharma Down (UDD) alternative rock band at Luneta Park in the City of Manila.
It’s truly an honor to take part in this and how could I refuse in giving justice to the music of my friend in heaven Dennis Garcia and his brother Rene who is also with him in heaven. Knowing him, he wouldn’t want any other modernized jeepney to be associated with his music.
Thanks to the City of Manila, NPDC, Viva Music Publishing and the Garcia family for the video and for including our modernized Francisco Jeepney. No other modernized jeepney can better depict the true Filipino spirit and culture.
Mabuhay ang Pilipino, …saan man sa mundo!
