ABS-CBN spreads light and love early as the network released the lyric video of “Ikaw Ang Liwanag at Ligaya,” the 2020 ABS-CBN Christmas ID, on Friday ahead of the video music premiere on Dec. 1 after TV Patrol.
The new Christmas anthem underscores the importance of prayer that brings light and joy to our lives during the darkest times in our journey this year.
“The song, which features the voices of 20 Kapamilya artists, highlights the love we share with our fellowmen and our gratitude to God, the primary source of light and joy of every family,” ABS-CBN says in a statement sent to Manila Standard Entertainment.
Another shining feature of the lyric video is the various translations of “liwanag” and “ligaya” to spread the inspiring message around the world this Christmas. Some of the featured languages include Waray, Kapampangan, Maguindanao, Italian, Korean, and Arabic, among others.
Adding sparkle to the song are Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, Ogie Alcasid, Morissette Amon, Bamboo, Janine Berdin, Darren Espanto, Vice Ganda, Sarah Geronimo, Toni Gonzaga, Jona, Moira, Martin Nievera, Elha Nympha, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Inigo Pascual, Angeline Quinto, Lea Salonga, Erik Santos, KZ Tandingan, and Gary Valenciano. Robert Labayen and Love Rose De Leon wrote the Christmas song with music by Thyro Alfaro.
