Last September 3, the 2019 Southeast Asian Games had released its official theme song entitled “We Win As One”. It was composed by National Artist for Music Ryan Cayabyab, written by Floy Quintos, and sung by world-renowned singer Lea Salonga.
Lea Salonga sings with pride
The prominent artist Lea Salonga has been our country’s pride for years because of her incredible talent in singing. She now brings another honor to the Philippines, as she was chosen to sing the official theme song of 2019 SEA Games “We Win As one”.
On Tuesday, the music video of “We Win As One” was posted on The 30th SEA Games’ official Youtube account.
Lea took this on Twitter for the announcement of her contributions and even the person behind this success.
‘We Win As One’ as inspiration
As indicated by Lea, this open door implies such a great amount, for this song will serve as a motivation for the athletes who will compete for the SEA Games.
“It feels fantastic, it feels wonderful to represent the Philippines in your own country,” Lea said.
“The intention is not just to entertain, I hope people like the song, but I hope that it serves as pride and inspiration for the athletes,” Lea added.
However, due to prior duties, Lea won’t play out the tune live at the opening ceremony of the 30th Southeast Asian Games. On the other hand, Ryan Cayabyab is working for the SEA Games’ music collection with other music artist.
Esports first time on SEA Games
The upcoming SEA Games will be exceptionally grand for the nation because aside from the usual sports competition, the Philippines will also be hosting the SEA Games with Esports for the first time.
The Philippines SEA Games Organizing Committee (PHISGOC) reported last year that Dota 2, Starcraft 2, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, Arena of Valor, Tekken 7, and Hearstone will be part of the list at this year’s SEA Games. It is the first time esports were regarded as a medal sport alongside volleyball, basketball, and any other athletic games.
Sibol, the Philippines official esports group, will represent the country on the upcoming SEA Games.
