Christmas Song Tribute for OFWs Now Released
With this in mind, singer TJ Monterde came up with a special song to pay tribute to OFWs this coming Christmas season. The song titled “Litrato Ngayong Pasko” (Our Christmas Photo) expresses one’s longing and desire to be with a family member who’s long been gone and away on Christmas day, as in the case of many OFWs and their families.
Recording company PolyEast Records shared the song’s music video on YouTube, which had gained thousands of views after it has been posted.
As if the song’s message wasn’t enough to strike a chord, the accompanying video will surely tug a couple of heartstrings as it follows a young boy who is patiently counting the days before Christmas just to be with his father.
The music video wraps up with the father, dressed as Santa, finally coming home to be with his son on Christmas day.
