We wanted our first single to really resonate with the mood of our fans and music lovers globally.

To dedicate all the proceeds from our debut single to the #ProjectPhilippines2013 campaign is also very special to us as after touring and travelling worldwide. It is easy to see how much of a big impact we can all do by doing something really small to support our brothers and sisters worldwide at a desperate time of need‘.
