“I think it sends a powerful message of hope para sa ating mga Kapuso. Kasi nga sa gitna ng pandemic at sa kabila ng lahat ng pinagdadaanan natin, nananatiling resilient ang mga Pilipino. We're stronger together dahil alam natin sa sarili natin na makakaya natin lahat ng mga pagsubok natin kapag nagtutulungan tayo,” San Jose mentioned, adding that she will be singing some of her original songs as well as upbeat and mellow songs that people can relate to.
