Let us transform the word adoption to what it truly stands …….LOVE.
In 2012, ICAB in cooperation with McCann WorldGroup launched the adoption advocacy campaign called “Love Sees Beyond Differences” to positively shape public opinion on adoption. Love Sees Beyond Differences endeavors to share the true meaning of adoption and encourage adoptive families to openly testify to the love for their children. It is a love that is worth declaring. A love that is worth testifying. It is a love that sees beyond differences.
Music is the universal language of love and was a key medium to transmit families love for their children. The creative team of McCann composed the advocacy song “I LOVE YOU ANAK” . Singer and songwriter, Ogie Alcasid volunteered his talent for the advocacy by lending his voice to sing the Pilipino version of the Adoption Advocacy Song “I Love You Anak”. World-renowned singer and national treasure, Lea Salonga shared her voice to give life to the English version of I Love you Anak.
ICAB would like to share with you the choir arrangement of the adoption advocacy song sang by the Earth Angels, Mandaluyong Children’s Choir.
