The one with Magpasalamat on two podcasts now

After Magpasalamat made it to Dan Johnson’s Journey Inside My Mind podcast, the song got picked up by Ed’s Mixed Bag. Magpasalamat opens Show #33, and Mr. Ovett calls me “a very special artist.”

I’m humbled and superblessed by the fact that Magpasalamat is considered worthy of inclusion in some podcasts in the US, and even more thrilled by the fact that it’s an original Filipino praise song that they chose to put on. I love how Magpasalamat makes a statement about my heritage. I’m proud to be Filipino, and doubly proud to be Christian.

Thank you, Dan and Ed. I’m so thankful that you guys are giving a Filipino musician a chance to be heard. Lord knows we don’t have much chances here.

MAGPASALAMAT (Give Thanks)
Translation from Filipino

Raise and wave our hands
Our feet follow gladly
Let us give thanks
to be in the presence of God

Dance for Yahweh, to Yahweh be the dance
Be happy with Yahweh, to Yahweh be our happiness

Chorus:
Give thanks
Praise the Lord

MAGPASALAMAT (in its original Filipino)
Itaas at ikaway ang aming kamay
Sumunod at sumaya ang aming paa
Magpasalamat na tayo
Kasama sa piling ng Diyos

Sumayaw para kay Yahweh, Sa Yahweh’ng sayaw
Sumaya para kay Yahweh, Sa Yahweh’ng saya

Chorus:
Magpasalamat
Purihin ang Panginoon
