Libera Sings Bayan Ko
So you weren’t able to watch Libera perform Bayan Ko during their recent Philippine tour? Well, thanks to the magic of online video, the boy choir’s performance is available through YouTube! Video of Libera singing Bayan Ko follows.
Also, thanks to the magic of user-generated content (i.e., video comments) we also see that some viewers have no idea what they’re talking about (aka, “idiots”):
arcticfox777: “the wonderful performance is distrubed by the applause!!”
megamix875: “what i hate is when people clap their hands even though its not yet done!!”
FuriousStreamer: OMG lol.. great voices but the constant cheers from the crowed and claps was starting to piss me off lol
kribusjoe: “Very Beautiful, thank you very much for sharing this with us.. I understand that the Filipines was thrilled to hear one of their songs.. and ti’s a sign of appreciation.. BUT I got well annoyed when they cept cheering and clapping.. completely destroys the beauty of it :( However, it was their own concert they disturbed.. lol.. I would get well mad if they did it over here though.. haha”
WolfyVidz: “It’s not very respectful applause during the song …”
yoyingp: “At first, I worried the applause would disturb the performance. I felt a bit ashamed for my countrymen who couldn’t get hold of themselves from the intro.”
…and at least one person who totally understands what’s going on:
finallyliberated: “The song BAYAN KO is no ordinary Filipino song. It is so full of meaning and history. Along with the song MAGKAISA, BAYAN KO became the ‘chant’ of the 1st EDSA rallyists in 1986. This song, without fail, brings people back to the memory of EDSA 1, NINOY or CORY and/or what they represented. It is a rally song. It IS that kind of song that evokes THIS kind of reaction. This probably explains the audience’ reaction.”
