In a few weeks’ time, we will be witnessing our very own Gazini Ganados compete in the much awaited Miss Universe 2019. Following the footsteps of her predecessor Catriona Gray who brought home the title, Gazini has very high heels to fill. With a unique advocacy to bring to the stage—it’s safe to say that we’ve got a fighting chance in making a back-to-back Miss Universe win happen.

Gazini’s advocacy, elderly care, is a simple yet profound cause that hits home to many—especially since many of us in the Philippines grew up under the care and guidance of our lolos and lolas. Just as we’ve witnessed in the previous years, such a heartfelt movement deserves an equally heartfelt anthem to go with it. That’s where Miko Manguba, aka JMKO in the music scene, comes in. With his help, “Timeless,” Gazini’s official advocacy song, was brought to life.

Already on his final year in Music Production at De La Salle - College of St. Benilde, JMKO did most of the technical work for the song. From songwriting, production, musical arrangement, and even vocals, he put the track together from scratch. “‘Timeless’emphasizes the need to shower the elderly with unconditional and long-lasting affection, especially our own grandparents. It reminds us to devote more appreciation and time to individuals who’ve gone past their prime,” says JMKO in a recent Facebook post.

While still in music school, this isn’t the first time JMKO conveyed his penchant for music. He is one of Star Music’s newest addition to their roster of talents, and as writing, he has released two singles and has several covers with over a thousand likes each on Facebook.

Great job, Miko! We’re definitely looking forward to hearing this as Gazini walks on stage!

“Timeless” is now available for streaming on Spotify. You can also watch the advocacy video here:

PRIMO.

First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.

The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.

There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
