PWAs Sing about Voting Wisely

By: Tiffany Tan, ASP Secretary



Sparkle Band, the latest autism teen pop sensation, reminds Filipinos to vote wisely. Recently, the band launched their latest CD entitled “Playing on Parallel Ground”. Their second single, Vote 2010, is composed by band mentors, Reymond Lee and Ralph Camitan.


Click here to watch a video footage of their performance during “Can Rock 3,” an event sponsored by the UP Special Education Council last February 21, 2010. The show showcased various talents of People with Special Needs. Sing along with the Sparkle Band, and let’s vote wisely.


Vote 2010

Music and Lyrics by: Reymond Lee and Ralph Camitan

Here we go, here we go, here we go again,

This is the crucial moment to spend,

Sometime to think things over,

Sometime to work things out.


Vigilance is not just a word, but our conviction, no doubt.

‘Tis the time to once again be the voice of a new sun shining


Si Manny, Gibo, Aquino, Estrada, Richard Gordon at Villanueva,

Lahat sila umaasa, pagbangon ng bayan tinatamasa,

Ngunit isa lang ang karapatdapat sa Diyos, sa tao at watawat


Sa araw na ‘yon, sarili’y dingin ang inang bayan ang iyong isipin


Ngayon ang panahon simulan ang pagbabago,

Ngayon muna gawin sa ‘yo nakasalalay,

Yugto ng bagong buhay

Karapata’y ipagbunyi


Let’s not wait a minute too soon,

Make this count, Let our voices loom

Wise up, Rise up, Voice up and stand up

Don’t be a fool, make a move,

And shake up, the nation depends on your intuition


Let’s be smart this coming election

You have the power to be the one,

To make a change, sa Bayan ni Juan


Ipakita sa mundo, ang iyong talino na hindi lamang kung sino-sino

Ang ilalagay sa araw ng pagboto

Gawing siryoso at di biro-biro

Sa isang papel nakasalalay, sa isang papel naka-antabay

Ang bagong aklat ng Pilipinas,

Puno ng pahina ng bagong bukas.


Mahirap, mayaman, matanda, kabataan,

Lahat tayo ay may katungkulan

Ikaw, Ako, Sila, Tayo

Sa Bayang mahal, i-alay ang boto,

Maging marangal, maging matapat sa isip, sa salita at sa watawat


Karapatan mo ang pumili, Karapatan mo ay ipagbunyi



This coming election, vote wisely for the sake of the country and the next generation.
