Libera surprises Filipinos with performances of Tagalog and Cebuano songs

Chairman of the British Alumni Association Dr. Roberto F. de Ocampo describes this year's Libera concert as the "continuing mutual affection between Libera and the Philippines..."

Filipinos had the chance to hear the angelic voices of the all-boys choir Libera once again through for a post-Valentine's treat. The Manila leg of the concert was held last February 16 at the PICC Plenary Hall in Pasay City.

Libera performed in the country for the fourth time as part of the Philippine-UK Friendship celebration.

The London-based vocal group performed a mix of Christian hymns, classical crossover songs, and other surprise performances.

One of their performances was a Cebuano love song that they dedicated to Cebu.

"We hope you understand it," a Libera member said before the performance. The song was suggested by Former Secretary of Finance and Chairman of the British Alumni Association, Dr. Robert de Ocampo.

For their encore, audiences rose to their feet and gave thunderous applause after the boys performed their much-cherished rendition of the beloved Filipino song, "Bayan Ko."

“Filipinos continue to regard their version of the song ("Bayan Ko") as one of the best ever,” Dr. de Ocampo said during his welcoming remarks prior to the concert.

He related their first Valentine’s concert in Manila as a demonstration of "the continuing mutual affection between Libera and the Philippines."

After the concert, fans were able to meet and greet the boys and have their t-shirts, mugs and other souvenirs signed.
