Jamie Rivera Releases Music Video To Remind Filipinos Of The Power Of Humble Prayer
Singing "Hilumin Mo, Bayan Ko," she invites Filipinos to unite in faith and music to get them through these tough times
Filipinos know it by heart by now—COVID-19 is deathly infectious. It's damaging, it makes us worry a lot, and we wish it would go away.
But do you know what else spreads quickly, what else is easily passed on from person to person?
According to artist Jamie Rivera, it's humility—humility, especially in the context of prayer. Only this time, this is a contagion she wishes would stay now, and for good.
Keeping this in mind, Jamie invites her fellow Filipinos to join her on Labor Day this Friday as she releases her music video for the song "Hilumin Mo, Bayan Ko," the Filipino version of the Christian tune "Heal Our Land."
In these difficult times, Jamie wishes to share her talents to lift the spirits of her kababayans and remind them to keep their faith.
"COVID-19—it’s so contagious, so powerful. And we are afraid. We all want to pray for protection and for the healing of our people, the healing of our land,” Jamie says.
"As we sing this prayer, 'Hilumin Mo, Bayan Ko,' let us be reminded that God is just waiting for us to humble ourselves. Because humility is more contagious. Humility can also infect other people. All we pray for is that by humbling ourselves before God and by admitting that we all need Him, God can heal our nation,” she adds.
Earlier in April, Jamie also participated in Metro's Safe & Sound series, which also featured performances by Carol Banawa, Katrina Saga, 92AD, and UST Singers, for ABS-CBN's Pantawid ng Pag-Ibig initiative which benefits families most affected by the pandemic and quarantine. There, Jamie performed "Tanging Yaman," in beautiful acapella. Relive the performance here.
Jamie's "Hilumin Mo, Bayan Ko" music video will be streamed on Star Music’s YouTube channel on May 1, Friday. For more details, visit and like Star Music on Facebook and follow them on Twitter and Instagram @StarMusicPH.
