Award-winning musical director Troy Laureta has teamed up with American singer Loren Allred for a delicately beautiful rendition of the OPM love song “Araw Gabi.”
Last November 5, Star Music premiered the full lyric video of Troy and Loren's interpretation of the OPM hit which was popularized by Regine Velasquez-Alcasid.
The “Never Enough” singer took to Instagram on Monday, November 8, to share how the collaboration came about and that she hopes her version “made her Filipino fans proud.”
“When I met Troy Laureta on David Foster’s tour, I knew we had to collaborate on something in the future,” recalled Loren, “and when he approached me to sing this Filipino classic I was over the moon!”
Thanking Troy for this collaboration, she went on to say, “Throughout the years, my Filipino fans have shown me so much love and I thought what better way to say thank you than to sing in Tagalog. This was such a special experience for me and I hope I made my Filipino fans proud.”
In a separate Instagram post, Troy revealed that this track is the first new single off of his upcoming album, describing it as “one of his favorite OPM love songs.”
Their fresh take on “Araw Gabi,” which was originally composed by Ryan Cayabyab and recorded by Nonoy Zuñiga, highlights Troy’s gift of exquisitely interpreting a classic and Loren’s silky and gorgeous vocals.
