Hold It Right

Sometimes the artist’s role is to say through his work, ‘this is what I’ve seen, this is what I know and this is what I stand for.’

When a rock star firmly advocates certain issues that we can all anchor on – issues like involvement through volunteerism, pride, hope, respect, and a sense of country -- then the fact that they have a captive audience won’t be such a waste.

Rock Ed Philippines is proud to have some of the country’s most gifted musicians as its volunteers. “They sing sometimes for this war that we fight, because every tool is a weapon, if you hold it right.”*
