Christian Bautista's Abomination?




Asian Idol Christian Bautista somehow failed his millions of Filipino fans when he commited a mistake in his rendition of the Philippine National anthem: "Lupang Hinirang". Midway Through the song, he accidentally or not made an unexpected turn and ended the song quite prematurely.

I would never want to be in Christian's position because Filipinos can be overly critical at times. True, He may have a total blunder but let us not forget that Christian is as human as we all are. He is bound to make mistakes. Let us give the poor guy a break because after all whatever pride he has brought to the country could never be equalled by any amount of misgivings in the future.

Christian, you are still and undoubtedly, and Asian Idol by acknowledging your mistake and learning from it.

For everybody's reference, here is the complete lyrics of the national song:

Bayang magiliw
perlas ng silanganan
alab ng puso
sa dibdib mo'y buhay

Lupang Hinirang
duyan ka ng magiting
sa manlulupig
di ka pasisiil

Sa Dagat At bundok sa simoy
at sa langit mong bughaw
may dilag ang tula at awit sa paglayang minamahal
ang kislap ng watawat mo'y tagumpay na nagniningning
ang bituin at araw niya'y kailanpama'y di magdidilim
lupa ng araw ng luwalhati't pagsinta
buhay ay langit sa piling mo
Aming ligaya na pagmay mang-aapi
ang mamatay nang dahil sayo
