On April 29, 2015, Filipino singer-songwriter Armand TJ from Boracay Island, Philippines uploaded the YouTube video ''Pusong Pinoy'' - Boracay's music video tribute to Pacman!
"The international people of Boracay are behind you Manny Pacquiao," the caption reads.
Two days later, the same video was uploaded in his Facebook Fan Page which quickly garnered over 10,000 views.
In the comments section of the Facebook video, he shared how the music video was produced.
"This video was made in a span of 3 days just two weeks ago. There was no exact storyboard, we just decided to wing it."
He also mentioned that most of the people featured in the music video were just invited on the same day it was shot.
"The four kids were just swimming at Diniwid beach, when we invited them to participate and shoot at Puka beach later that afternoon."
Armand TJ, a global islander who produced an all original Boracay CD album in 2006, also shared his thought process during the production of the music video.
"Writing this song, making this video tribute, and watching and hearing the final product, made me see Manny Pacquiao in a different light. This seems to be the power of music. What he achieved with his life, and the symbol he has become for a whole nation, is beyond words. And I've tried to grasp this the best way I could, through song."
A few more hours until the fight. The world will be watching.
"Filipinos and friends around the world, our hearts will be beating together in the next few hours."
