Google PH launches feel-good song for OFWs

Sa 'king puso ay merong butas
Miss na miss ko na ang Pilipinas!

Google Philippines launched Miss Ko Na project to celebrate National Heroes Day for the modern-day heroes, aiming to “bring Filipinos together by creating something they can own and be proud of.”

I remember Yan Yuzon posted a call on Facebook for OFWs to share "Anong namimiss mo sa Pilipnas?" - things or activities they miss in the Philippines, and it could possibly become part of the lyrics. Indeed, using the hashtag #GoogleMissKoNa, the artists were able to gather thousands of posts through social media, and many fun, serious and wacky video and status post submissions become part of the song.

Apparently, his brother's band Yael was part of the project. With Spongecola are KJWAN, Itchyworms, Ebe Dancel and Mikey Bustos.

Interactive lyrics. Users can tap the lyrics and Youtube will open search results with relevant videos to the words.
The feel-good song sums up all the things we miss (and do not miss) in the Philippines. Bottom line is, we OFWs, "...araw-araw umaasa, na makasama ang pamilya!" (...everyday we hope to be with our families).

What a great way to tell the message through music - it runs in the blood. I feel this is bound to become an LSS of every Filipino working overseas. Possibly make the charts at Dubai's favorite TAG 91.1 FM.

The video is tagged as the first 360-degree Youtube video in the Philippines.  If you're using Chrome browser, click and drag to see different angles of the video. If you're watching on Youtube app on Android mobile, you can feel it by moving the phone to any angle you prefer.

Another great project of Google Philippines that keeps the global Filipinos attached to home. Last year, they launched Google Balikbayan community portal to connect to different OFW circles all around the world. They also launched this emotional video ad for Filipinos who won't be home for Christmas.
