In an effort to honor our modern-day heroes, Google Philippines has turned into the power of crowdsourcing to create a song dedicated to millions of Overseas Filipino Workers around the globe.
The lyrics of the OFW anthem will be coming from Filipinos here and abroad and will be sung by five popular local bands and musicians, namely Ebe Dancel, Mikey Bustos, ItchyWorms, Kjwan and Sponge Cola. The song will be released exclusively on YouTube on September 1, just in time for this year National Heroes’ Day.
