When I first saw GMA Kapuso Network’s version of Lupang Hinirang, I was literally awestruck. My initial reaction was to identify the popular actors and actresses who participated in this endeavor. Then I noticed that the events being shown are those that could make every Filipino proud. The first notes of Lupang Hinirang starts off with the execution of Jose Rizal and then shows every bit of historical event in the Philippines. It hits your spirit of nationalism – and hits you hard. I was holding back my tears as the song ends with an image of the EDSA Revolution. I have since watch this several times and getting the same emotions. Thank you, GMA Kapuso – you have struck GOLD on this one.
