Did you catch your favorite Kapamilya artist in the 2020 ABS-CBN Christmas station ID?

ABS-CBN has launched its star-studded Christmas station ID for 2020.

Dubbed “Ikaw ang Liwanag at Ligaya ng Pasko,” the 15-minute station ID premiered on December 1, 2020, within TV Patrol.

And despite the absence of the network's free TV after its shutdown on July 10, 2020, and the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic, the production and treatment were pretty much the same save for the face shields and masks being part of most people's wardrobe staples.

And yes, the feeling while watching it was the same, too. It made people cry, it warmed the heart, and, it brimmed with positivity.

To comply with the restrictions of physical distancing, ABS-CBN had some of its stars shoot their parts at home, while others were asked to come to the studio for the star-studded montage.

Cast members of its present and upcoming TV shows were also together on location.

Just like the past years, there were man-on-the-street interviews and interactions between ABS-CBN stars.

There were also snippets showing how COVID-19 affected the lives of many.

Some decided to pursue what makes them happy. Among them was a lady who got engaged after surviving COVID-19.

Some went out of their way to make others happy. Among them was a service driver who prepared free snacks for frontliners.

There were also a few scenes featuring the Dumagat and Aeta tribes.


Twenty Kapamilya singers collaborated for the theme song of the station ID.

They were Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, Ogie Alcasid, Morissette Amon, Bamboo, Janine Berdin, Darren Espanto, Vice Ganda, Sarah Geronimo, Toni Gonzaga, Jona, Moira, Martin Nievera, Elha Nympha, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Inigo Pascual, Angeline Quinto, Lea Salonga, Erik Santos, KZ Tandingan, and Gary Valenciano.
