MANILA — The TNT Boys performed the national anthem at the Independence Day flag-raising ceremony of ABS-CBN that aired Wednesday after "Umagang Kay Ganda."
The trio — Francis Concepcion, Mackie Empuerto, and Kiefer Sanchez — also joined The CompanY in singing a new tune composed by National Artist Ryan Cayabyab, titled "Isang Tawag Mo Lang."
The Independence Day event was hosted by “TV Patrol” anchors Noli de Castro and Bernadette Sembrano.
In his speech, ABS-CBN chairman Mark Lopez paid tribute to Filipinos' resilient spirit. He also recognized individuals who have stood with ABS-CBN to extend help to Kapamilyas in need through the company’s public service programs over the past 65 years.
Also part of the ceremony were ABS-CBN president and CEO Carlo Katigbak, ABS-CBN COO of Broadcast Cory Vidanes, and ABS-CBN Integrated News and Current Affairs head Ging Reyes.
