The official Kapampangan translation of the mission song for the 500th year of Christianity in the Philippines was launched today, March 16.
Entitled “Tángû Kami”, the song was a collaboration project between the Mother of Good Counsel Seminary and the Archdiocesan Liturgical Commission of Pampanga, the Archdiocesan Commission on Social Communication, with the help of the Office of the Archbishop.
In a message, the Most Rev. Florentino Lavarias D.D., Archbishop of San Fernando said: “The 500th Year Celebration of the Christian Faith in our country has been inspiring the Filipino faithful to be grateful to God for the gift of faith. And this spirit of gratitude moves us to be generous to share whatever we can do to make the said celebration more meaningful and to enliven our commitment to continue giving witness to our Christian faith.”
Tángû Kami is derived from the song “We Give Our Yes”, which is the official mission song for the quincentennial anniversary of Christianity in the Philippines. Originally composed by Manila priest Fr. Carlo Magno Marcelo, the song gained attention on YouTube and was performed by renowned Gospel Singer Jamie Rivera.
