Moira Dela Torre ‘chooses to love’ for PLDT Home collab

Fresh from the viral success of the music video of her single “Paubaya,” which features the #JoshLia love team of Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto, singer-songerwriter Moira Dela Torre presents new song, “Pag-ibig ang Pipiliin.”

Aptly recognized as the most streamed Filipina singer on Spotify, Moira Dela Torre has the perfect Valentine offering in the music video for the latest single composed and arranged by no other than award-winning songwriter Jonathan Manalo. Being the voice for the newest campaign of PLDT Home, she has once again captured the hearts of netizens through her music, lyrics, and artistry.

For this season of love in February, PLDT Home gives substance to the need to choose love in the midst of our problems and life’s everyday trials. #ChooseToLove campaign is not just an ordinary campaign over social media platforms; it also transcends across real-life situations where love must be chosen over fear and hatred.

The lyrics tell much about the significance of love in the time being:

“Kahit na di natin alam ang bukas (Even if tomorrow’s uncertain)
Kahit di sumikat ang araw at bumuhos ang ulan (Even if the sun won’t show, the rain won’t come)
Kahit hindi umayon ang tadhana (Even if destiny does not permit)
Isang tawag mo lang, pupuntahan nasaan ka man. (One call away, I will be there wherever you may be)
Ganyan ang tunay na pag-ibig di takot sa mundo (That’s what love is: it doesn’t fear the world)
Ipaglalaban kita hanggang sa dulo (I will fight for you until the end)
Pag-ibig ang pipiliin ko” (I will choose love)

According to Moira, the song’s message wraps up her goal in writing songs throughout the years. As such, she is more than honored to be selected by PLDT Home to have a collaboration with.

As for music arranger Jonathan Manalo, the primary message of “Pag-ibig ang Pipiliin” is the ultimate power of love that changes and conquers all. He also noted that it puts emphasis on the kind of love worth fighting for.

The song was also co-written by singer-songwriter Trisha Denise. 

Fall in love, not just this Valentine’s season but any day of the year with Moira Dela Torre’s newest music video for her latest single, “Pag-ibig ang Pipiliin,” directed by Benedict Mariategue, produced by Playback Productions for PLDT Home.
