PRESS STATEMENT FROM MCA MUSIC:
"He is a boxing champion, a congressman, an actor and a singer. There is no stopping the Filipino pride as Manny Pacquiao adds another feather on his cap with his recording "Sometimes When We Touch."
"It features its original creator and singer Dan Hill, who made the song a top 10 hit in the ’70s. Artists such as Tina Turner, Tammy Wynette, Rod Stewart, Barry Manilow and Engelbert Humperdinck are among those that have covered the song. Hill was inspired to record the song with Pacquiao when he heard him sing the song during a guesting at the U.S. late night show Jimmy Kimmel Live.
"Pacquiao recorded the song at Capitol Studios in Texas last year as he prepared for his fight with Antonio Margarito.
"The single was released globally before his WBO welterweight title bout in Las Vegas against Shane Mosley. Here in the Philippines, MCA Music is releasing a CD + DVD of the recording. Manny Pacquiao Sings Sometimes When We Touch CD + DVD features 7 versions of the hit song plus a DVD featuring the making of the single, his recording session with Dan Hill and the official music video of Manny singing "Sometimes When We Touch."
"Manny Pacquiao sings Sometimes When We Touch featuring Dan Hill is now out at major record stores nationwide under MCA Music."
