MANILA, Philippines – It isn’t everyday that Jimmy Kimmel sings in Filipino, but he did just that when he performed boxing champ Manny Pacquiao’s song “Lalaban Ako Para sa Pilipino” (I Am Going to Fight for Filipinos) on his show Jimmy Kimmel Live in a video posted on April 15.
“To inspire himself, to get himself fired up for the fight, Pacquiao just released his own walkout song,” Jimmy said before showing the music video.
