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:

When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.

You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.

You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
