WATCH: Repertory Philippines' 'The Sound of Music' cast reunites to sing 'Paraiso'

The cast members of Repertory Philippines' 80s run of The Sound of Music reunited to sing National Artist for Music Ryan Cayabyab's classic "Paraiso."

In a Sunday, November 15 post on her Facebook page, Senator Risa Hontiveros, who played Louisa von Trapp in the musical, said they got together again to sing the song to commemorate the World Day of the Poor.

"Sa kantang 'Paraiso' ni Maestro Ryan Cayabyab ay nais naming muling ipaalala nina Lea Salonga (Brigitta), Monique Wilson (Marta), Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo (Liesl), Raymond Lauchengco (Friedrich), Javier Arriaga (Kurt), Gianina Revilla-Dayrit (Gretl) at Angela Adams (Gretl), ang mensahe ng pagbibigayan at pagtutulungan, lalo na sa mga panahong humaharap ang bansa sa isang matinding pagsubok."

(In singing Maestro Ryan Cayabyab's "Paraiso," Lea Salonga (Brigitta), Monique Wilson (Marta), Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo (Liesl), Raymond Lauchengco (Friedrich), Javier Arriaga (Kurt), Gianina Revilla-Dayrit (Gretl), Angela Adams (Gretl), and I bring you the message of altruism and helping each other out, especially at a time when the entire country faces a difficult challenge.)

"Sama-sama, walang maiiwan o mag-iisa. Together, we can make a difference." (All together, nobody is left behind. Together, we can make a difference.)

"Paraiso," written by Cayabyab was originally performed by the group Smokey Mountain in the early '90s. ā€“ Rappler.com
