Bukas Palad: Sing Forever
"The promises of the LORD I will sing forever, proclaim your loyalty through all ages." - Psalm 89
For the past 25 years, the Bukas Palad Music Ministry has been a proponent of original Filipino liturgical and inspirational music. More commonly known as "Bukas Palad" (literally, "open palm" in Tagalog), the group borrows its name from the title track of its first album, "Panalangin sa Pagiging Bukas-Palad," a translation of Ignatius of Loyola's Prayer for Generosity.
Bukas Palad's music has reached far and wide, wherever Filipino Christians gather for prayer. Songs such as "Tanging Yaman" (Only Treasure), "Hindi Kita Malilimutan" (I will never forget you, from the book of Isaiah), and "I Will Sing Forever," have become standards in Filipino worship. Founded by childhood friends and classmates Fr. Manoling Francisco, SJ, Norman Agatep, and Jandi Arboleda, Bukas Palad's membership counts over a hundred voices, who have recorded 15 albums and sung for hundreds of concerts and services over the last 25 years.
In 2011, Bukas Palad returns to North America with the SING FOREVER concert tour. From April 01-20, Bukas Palad will visit communities in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, New York, Boston, Washington and Toronto as part of their continuing ministry. With the SING FOREVER tour, Bukas Palad renews and celebrates its 25-year commitment to proclaiming the good news through song, helping people to give voice to their faith. SING FOREVER describes not only the work that Bukas Palad has done through a quarter of a century, but it also exhorts all the faithful "to proclaim God's loyalty through the ages." SING FOREVER also honors and celebrates music ministries throughout the world, all those whose faith cannot help but break into song.
Bukas Palad CD's and songbooks will also be available during the tour, including Silver Anniversary editions of The Best of Bukas Palad Volumes 1 and 2, Pasko Na, and featuring Bukas Palad's newest album of liturgical music, Christify.
