Watch songwriter Trina Belamide sing her own composition, and look back at the past papal visits in the Philippines

MANILA, Philippines – For the Filipino schoolchild weaned on the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit during the ’90s, “Tell The World of His Love” was the definitive anthem of the Catholic faithful.

Songwriter Trina Belamide, who composed the song that defined the World Youth Day of 1995, talked to Rappler about the story behind it.

Watch her perform the song in full, along with file photos of past papal visits in the Philippines – including John Paul II’s trip to the Philippines exactly 20 years ago on Monday, January 12.

And if you remember the hand gestures, try going along with it. –
