David has always been candid in his admiration for Asia’s songbird Regine Velasquez, recently married to singer-songwriter Ogie Alcasid who happens to be the original recording artist of the much beloved Philippine love song, Nandito Ako (I Am Here). Much beloved that Nandito Ako went multi-diamond in the Philippines for sales exceeding 1 million copies.
So it is such a serendipitous development that his 1st ever dramatic tele-serye in the Philippines would end up adopting Nandito Ako as its soap title and theme song.
As the original singer of Nandito Ako, here is what Ogie has to say about it
Could a meeting then between David & Regine with Ogie be far behind? Well, on 27 Jan 2012, we got this …
@ogiealcasid: Wifey and I will personally meet david archuleta on sunday. Excited to meet him:)
Twitter exploded from all corners as the fans got excited for our guy 🙂 The rest is what you call history 🙂
And in case you’re wondering what song is that —
NOW am wondering why David knows that song??? Jay Durias arranged that South Border (a local RnB band) song. Perhaps it is one of the songs that David did for the tele-series????? Woot-woot! OOoohhh to be able to share my BTS stories…
Anw, am happy that David got his wish fulfilled, with a bonus at that! 🙂 Paging Mr. Ogie Alcasid! I think we should have coffee one of these days, LOL (I kinda know him on a business level…)
