Certified as one of Philippine music's historical figures with his ground-breaking Isang Araw Lang album, Kuya Daniel delivers a heart-warming speech of gratitude
A record-label executive congratulates Kuya Daniel on making Philippine musical history in just one day!
Kuya Daniel Razon will not stop until he exhausts all his abilities for the sake of a great humanitarian cause. Thus, he puts his soothing voice to good use and records ten beautiful hand-picked songs in an album named after the popular cause Isang Araw Lang.
And it paid off – for the first time in Philippine music history, the Isang Araw Lang album received a gold record on the same day of its launch!
The album launched at YCONCON: Isang Araw Lang concert was produced by Breakthrough and Milestones Productions International (BMPI) and features OPM songs such as So Many Questions, Your Love, Habang May Buhay, With a Smile, Huwag Na Lang Kaya, I’ll Never Go, Forevermore, Tag-ulan, and Hold On. The carrier single named after the cause is also included in this charity-motivated album.
The YCONCON or Youth Concert Convention organized by the Bible Readers Society (BREAD) has been supporting the KFI’s many community service works. On 2007, the YCONCON’s proceeds were given to the rehabilitation of a number of drug-addicted youth. This year they supported Kuya Daniel’s Free College Education cause – by letting music history happen on their organized musical fest.
One of the most anticipated moments in this concert is Bro. Eli Soriano of Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path), Kuya Daniel Razon’s uncle and co-humanitarian. Bro. Eli, who is the major laborer behind the Kamanggagawa Foundation’s community works, were one with the concert-goers via live streaming. Never failing to give words of wisdom straight from the Bible, Bro. Eli commended those who supported the Isang Araw Lang campaign and the historic album of the same name.
The Isang Araw Lang album is filled with great tunes with a great humanitarian backbone. Manila Bulletin’s Crispina Martinez-Belen was smitten with Kuya Daniel’s drive to do good.
“… With all his visible endeavors, it is apparent that the man really walks his talk. Asked why his campaign is called “Just One Day,” he simply answers, I’ll leave that for you to answer… in UNTV, we do it every day,” writes Martinez-Belen on Manila Bulletin’s online version.
