How does the Philippine language sound ?

How does the Filipino language sound ? Listen to the music video below of a Philippine song produced by Troy Laurete, a Filipino American musical director , who is currently Arianne Grande’s current musical director. ( Beyonce’s and Lady Gaga’s , too, I heard ) The original song is sung by Regine Velasquez, a Filipina singer. To make it relatable to Americans, I ‘ve chosen this video that’s sung by an American singer, Pia Toscana.. ( I guess she’s Laurete’s celebrity friend ) Pia Toscana is amazing. Her Tagalog pronunciation is flawless. Just my guess,she speaks Italian ……maybe this is the reason why her pronunciation of Filipino language is flawless. Spanish speakers can pronounce unaccented Filipino, as well.

Filipino love ballads are beautiful. So check out the video below. ( I can imagine Whitney Houston singing this, RIP Whitney Houston. )

The title of the song is ” Kailangan Kita” ( I Need You ). Music is part of any culture. Be curious, be entertained.
