Google PH Launches #GoogleMissKoNa Karaoke Music Video for OFWs

Magparamdam naman kayo
I-Google nyo man lang ako
Habang tayo’y magkalayo
Sana ay miss nyo rin ako!

The single “Miss Ko Na,” launched by Google Philippines on Tuesday, captures almost every unique aspect of life in the Philippines enjoyed with family and friends that was left behind by the more than 10 million OFWs, from eating halo-halo to watching tear-jerkers on television to singing one’s heart out in karaoke sessions.

Last month, the technology giant launched the Google Miss Ko Na project, aiming to “bring Filipinos together by creating something they can own and be proud of.”

The project was able to gather thousands of lyric submissions through social media and other platforms, which the artists worked on to produce the song in two weeks.

For National Heroes Day, five Pinoy musicians (Ebe Dancel, Itchyworms, Kjwan, Mikey Bustos, and Sponge Cola) wrote this song for OFWs, with a little help from Filipinos all around the world. Enjoy!

Now tell me what have you miss most in the Philippines… Drop a line to the comment box!
