Marlo Mortel keeps the faith with touching song for sick mom

Marlo Mortel elevated his singing career by going back to his first love, songwriting. During his contract signing with Star Music, yesterday, August 15, the 25-year-old TV host-actor-singer shared to the media that most songs on his new album are inspired by country music and were also written by him.

One song from his album was especially dedicated to his mom who has been battling cancer since 2014.

"Nai-release ko yung 'I Pray' nung Mother's Day. Hindi talaga dapat siya kasama sa album ko dahil kumpleto na, love story. But since ganoon 'yung pinagdadaanan namin gusto ko sanang iregalo sa kanya 'yun as a song of inspiration and hope," he shared. 

And when asked about the latest on his mother's condition, Marlo said, "Ayaw niyang pasabi pero ang ganap, eh, ilang linggo na siya doon. Ibig sabihin medyo malala na 'yong nangyayari. Usually aabot lang naman kami ng wala pang one week kapag nagche-chemo siya pero iba na kasi ito. Iba't ibang operations na 'yong ginagawa sa kanya."

Marlo also shared that in spite of this challenging chapter, his family chooses to pray even harder and that their faith on his mom immediate recovery remains intact.

Marlo starred with Zanjoe Marudo and Rhian Ramos in "Fallback" released last November.
