Stars like Lea Salonga, Apl.de.Ap, Daniel Padilla, Jaya, Martin Nievera, and Gary V lend their voices in support of the #StopAsianHate global campaign

Lea Salonga, Black Eyed Peas’ Apl.de.Ap, Martin Nievera, Gary Valenciano, Jaya, and other Filipino musicians have banded together for the #StopAllHate #ShareLove music video, in support of Asia Society’s global #StopAsianHate global campaign.

The all-star ensemble recasts the Rodgers & Hammerstein song “You’ve Got To Be Carefully Taught” with updated lyrics that address the attacks and violence against Asians in America.

Other stars who lent their voices include Jed Madela, Daniel Padilla, Cris Villonco, Moira Dela Torre, and Sam Concepcion. Mon Faustino helmed the musical and vocal arrangement of the production.

The original song was written for the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical, South Pacific, from the 1950s. The lyrics tackle how bigotry and hate can take root in some people, but is not a person’s natural instinct. It talks about how hate is taught, but can also be unlearned.

Featured at the start of the music video is a #StopAsianHate artwork by visual artist Elmer Borlongan. Asia Society Philippines also collaborated with CANVAS, Art Fair Philippines 2021, Ramon Magsaysay Award Foundation, and Manila House for the campaign. – Rappler.com
