Amid these challenging times, Darren Espanto hopes to spark hope with his new Christmas song “Believe in Christmas.”
The young singer first teased about his upcoming song last November 7. He has since been uploading a series of teasers before the track officially drops this November 13.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News published today, November 11, Darren said that he really treasures the song because of its message.
“I immediately fell in love with the message of the song. Nag-stand out siya sa family ko. It’s a modern Christmas anthem which everyone can relate to. It speaks of joy, love, faith, and gratitude," he said.
Darren also wants his song to become a ray of sunshine amid the pandemic.
“It’s really a different Christmas now but we have to celebrate it, lalo na tayong mga Pinoy. I really want to release a Christmas song dahil ang dami na nating pinagdaanan," he said.
“Kahit Christmas tree lang ang laman ng bahay, you can feel the vibe of the holidays. More than ever, we have to cherish time with our family and loved ones. Their lives matter more than anything else in this world. Sana nga, matapos na ‘tong pandemic,” he added.
"Believe in Christmas" is composed by Tiny Corpuz, and will be initially launched by MCA Music this Friday.
