GMA Network officially launches “Love is Us This Christmas” – a simple yet powerful 2022 Christmas Station ID (CSID) theme – as the true essence of this season is God’s great love for us, and we are the living embodiment of His love.

The much-awaited Kapuso holiday video was first seen last November 6 on All-Out Sundays which showcased the colorful ensemble of Kapuso artists and personalities bannered by Jessica Soho, Dingdong Dantes, Michael V, Heart Evangelista, Dennis Trillo, Alden Richards, Bea Alonzo, and Marian Rivera.

“Dalawang taon na tayong nagpa-Pasko nang hindi magkakasama. Ipinagdiwang natin ang pinakamasayang araw ng taon sa kanya-kanya nating mga bahay.

“Bagamat masaya rin naman ang mga nagdaang Kapaskuhan, iba pa rin ‘yung magkakasama tayo sa paggunita sa araw ng Kanyang kapanganakan. Kaya ngayon, babawi kami!

“Ipadarama namin sa inyo ang aming pagmamahal at pasasalamat dahil miss na miss na namin kayong lahat!” said the Kapuso celebrities as they open the station ID.

(It’s been two years of celebrating Christmas apart. We celebrated the happiest day of the year in our respective homes. Although the past holiday seasons were likewise joyful, remembering His birth while being together still hits different. We’ll make up for it this year! We’ll make you feel our love and gratitude because we missed you all so much!)

In the six-minute video, the faces of the Kapuso Network were seen setting up a Christmas party and opening their homes for merrymakers to celebrate the most joyous time of the year with their family, friends, and fans – something that they haven’t done in the past few years during the height of the pandemic.

Christmas station IDs have become an annual tradition for both GMA and the viewers. It encapsulates the Network’s message of gratitude to the Kapuso viewers’ for making GMA the Philippines’ leading broadcast network reaching millions of Filipinos through its growing list of 95 TV stations located nationwide. As a way of giving back, GMA wholeheartedly gives only the best for its loyal Kapuso in all possible ways.

Prior to the launch of the full-length 2022 GMA CSID, the Kapuso Network gave viewers and netizens a musical treat when it initially released the lyric video of this year’s newest holiday theme song. “Love is Us this Christmas” was performed by the powerhouse vocals of Kapuso singers led by Julie Anne San Jose, Christian Bautista, Aicelle Santos, Mark Bautista, Maricris Garcia, Garrett Bolden, Jeremiah Tiangco, Anthony Rosaldo, Thea Astley, Mariane Osabel, XOXO, Zephanie, and Vilmark Viray.

The jingle was composed and arranged by Ann Margaret Figueroa with lyrics by Emman Rivera and Jann Fayel Lopez.

The year 2022 has given us, Filipinos, hope to celebrate Christmas once again with all our loved ones. And as we slowly go back into how things were, the Kapuso Network urges everyone to selflessly give our hearts just like how He loves us – the highest form of love. (PR)
