“Ipadinig ang tinig ng mga nawalan.”
Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla lead their home network ABS-CBN’s battle hymn for those who have lost their livelihoods following the broadcast giant’s franchise denial.
In the music video released on August 31, the couple sang Tinig ng Nawalan with some of the network’s retrenched employees.
“Sa Pambansang Araw ng mga Bayani, Agosto 21, 2020, ating kilalanin ang mga mamamayang nahihirapan, pero nananatiling matatag at mapagmalasakit. Sa mga kuwento ng kabiguan, nakatala rin ang pagkakaisa,” ABS-CBN said.
The video also featured Filipinos who have lost friends and family during the global pandemic.
Other Kapamilya celebrities who were present in the network’s protest for their franchise renewal were also seen in the video.
Early July, Congress denied ABS-CBN a 25-year franchise to operate its free TV and radio stations once again.
Following the denial, the media network announced that it will begin its retrenchment program covering the company and its subsidiaries by the end of August.
