UP Madrigal Singers—Huwag Kang Mangamba

Noticed this video today. It's a song composed by Fr. Manoling Francisco, S.J. (no relation to me) called 'Huwag Kang Mangamba' (Don't You Worry).

The reason why it caught my attention: Fr. Manoling spoke before the performance of the song (in which the University of the Philippines (Diliman) Madrigal Singers, under the direction of Mark Anthony A. Carpio, is accompanied by the composer on piano). It was very moving. He described a former student of his who had lost his entire family to the genocides in Rwanda.

Here's the video.
