The GMA Network has come-up with a two-and-a-half-minute cinematic version of the Philippine National Anthem after almost 10 months of meticulous research and preparation.

The project was done wholly in high-definition digital video technology in close coordination with the National Historical Commission of the Philippines and in corporate partnership with SM Cinemas. It will be a part of GMA’s sign-on and sign-off messages marking the beginning and end of each day’s broadcast and will also be shown in shown in all SM movie houses nationwide.
Some of the big Kapuso stars and talents in the historical video include Marvin Agustin, Iza Calzado, Dingdong Dantes, Gabby and Geoff Eigenmann, Mark Anthony Fernandez, Richard Gutierrez, Marian Rivera, Dennis Trillo, Ogie Alcasid, Heart Evangelista, Eddie Garcia, Jaya, Zoren Legaspi, German Moreno, Regine Velasquez, Carmina Villaroel, Arnold Clavio, Mike Enriquez, Vicky Morales, Howie Severino, Jessica Soho, and Mel Tiangco.
