"United As One" was originally written to help bring much needed awareness, and to raise funds for the Philippine Red Cross, after the devastating floods of Typhoon Ondoy. However, year after year, the storms got worse and when Typhoon Yolanda hit the Philippines, I was about to start filming the travel reality show "FIL IT UP". I decided to re-record the track and used footage from the TV series to show the beauty of the Philippines, that no matter what hit them, they still were able to stand up and welcome you to their shores. It's a song of celebration as well as brotherhood. Some lyrics are in Tagalog (Filipino) but mostly in English. Proceeds from the sale of this song will go directly to the Philippine Red Cross to help their continued efforts in dealing with victims of natural disasters.

This video showcases the locations and scenes shot around the Philippines in GMA’s travel reality show, FIL IT UP. Co-hosted by ROCKSTAR:INXS finalist MiG Ayesa and AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL winner Sophie Sumner, FIL IT UP travels the country in search of inspiration for art, fashion and music while searching for the best the country has to offer, immersing MiG and Sophie deep into the rich culture of this diverse country. The song was originally written to help bring awareness to the victims of storm floods, it was re-recorded to bring much needed help and awareness to the victims of Typhoon Yolanda. The song, as does the show, was created to show that the Philippines is indeed a country worth visiting and through your help, and awareness, could help to rebuild those areas devastated by the fiercest storm to ever make landfall. All proceeds from the sale of this song will go to the Philippine Red Cross.

UNITED AS ONE
(Words and Music by MiG Ayesa)
(Tagalog Translations by Freddie Santos)

Kapatid, Kaibigan, Kababayan 
(Sibling, friend, countrymen)
Kapatid, Kaibigan, Kababayan
Kapatid, Kaibigan, Kababayan
Kasama mo ako
(I am with you)
Kasama mo ako

I hear you calling out my name
And I can't just ignore what you're saying
I see you falling from the pain
And I'm feeling the way that you're hurting
You're my brother, sister don't you cry
I'll be there by your side to hold you up
Though you never thought this would matter
I'll never leave you alone

So hold on tightly, hang on I'll be
There by your side and we'll battle the tide
Together...(Mag kasama!)
Together...(Mag kasama!)
Don't be scared we'll
Soon be where we
All want to be as we stand here united as one.

Pag langit ay du-mi-di-lim 
(When dark clouds leave you in despair)
And the rain seems to fall down forever
At buhay ay uma-aah-sim
(When life is just too much too bear)
And you can't feel the break in the weather
You don't have to worry
I'll help you carry on
Through the eye of the storm we're holding on
The day's dawning, feel the sun warming
Healing you, keeping you strong...

So hold on tightly, hang on I'll be
There by your side and we'll battle the tide 
Together...(Mag kasama!)
Together...(Mag kasama!)
Don't be scared we'll
Soon be where we
All want to be 
As we stand here united as one.

Kapatid, Kaibigan, Kababayan
Kapatid, Kaibigan, Kababayan

You’re my brother, sister, mother
I'll be there by your side to hold you up
I'll be by your side...

So hold on tightly,
Hang on I'll be
There by your side 
And we'll battle the tide 
Together...(Mag kasama!)
Together...(Mag kasama!)
Don't be scared we'll
Soon be where we
All want to be 
As we stand here united as one.
Ooh, we stand as one.

Kapatid, Kaibigan, Kababayan
Kapatid, Kaibigan, Kababayan
Kasama mo ako
Kasama mo ako
