IMO, it depends on the occasion on which it would be sung. in pineda's case, dapat alalahanin nating boxing match yun. each and everyone in the audience is there para sa entertainment. wala naman masama sa paraan ng pagkanta ni arnel pineda, maganda naman e. hindi naman degrading para sa bansa. ang mahalaga, isina-puso ang pagkanta ng pambansang awit at hindi nababastos. hindi rin nawawala yung paggalang sa watawat. siguro, sa mga okasyong pormal na lang natin paghigpitan ang paraan ng pagkanta ng lupang hinirang

Good Day!
I notices that own interpretation of the National Anthem has been a practice of some atrist. Definitely, any artist or person is oblige to sing Lupang Hinirang as enshrined in the law. I believe that aside from being prescribed by the law, singing the National Anthem SHOULD be in accordance with the original musical arrangement and composition also to give respect and honor to its composer. Proper way of singing it gives more relevance to our nationalism and obligation to our country. Maybe artist can have liberty on other songs and have it in their way or version but singing our National Anthem comes a different story...

Nakaka-lungkot!! mali na naman ang pag kanta ng ating pambansang awit.

Dapat gayahin nila ang pag-kanta ni Martin Nievera pa martsa ngunit wag ang bandang dulo binirit nya e...

Dapat ang pag kanta ng Lupang Hinirang sa nakaraang laban ni pacquiao ay dapat tulad sa orihinal na komposisyon dahil ito ang naka tala sa batas. At kung kakantahin naman ito ng mula sa puso dapat ito ay pa martsa, dahil ginawa iyan ni "julian felipe" na buong puso at taas noo.

Isang maligaya at pagpupugay para sa pagkapanalo ng people's champ manny pacquiao ngunit isang malungkot na balita ang maling pagkanta ng sikat na mang-aawit na si arnel pineda..
ilang beses na sa kasaysayan ng laban ng kampeon ng boxing ito nangyayari laging palpak ang pagkaka-awit..ayon nga sa batas,,R.A. 8491 specifies that Lupang Hinirang "shall be in accordance with the musical arrangement and composition of Julian Felipe." ...

dapat lamang na parusahan ang mga taong ito though na nobody is perfect pero simula pa ng elementarya hanggang kolehiyo ay inaawit na ito,,
isa pa ay hindi konsyerto ang dinaluhan ng sikat na ito kundi isang laban kaya dapat hindi niya ibinirit bagkus dapat sinundan ang tamang pag-awit na ito na pamartsa,,,,nakakalungkot talaga!!!!=C

sa parte ko, sa tingin ko ay ginawa lang ni mr. arnel ang part niya, ang kantahin ang lupang hinirang, on his own way nga lang. maybe embarassing kung ito ay susuriin pero kung titignan natin, si mr. manny pacquiao ang mismong pumili kay mr. arnel para kumanta ng pambansang awit ng pilipinas. hindi inisip ni mr. manny kung paano kakantahin ni mr. arnel ito kasi he knows that mr. pineda can do it on his own. then yun nga ang ginawa ni mr. pineda. he sing the national anthem on his own, with the use of his nationalistic heart.

para sa iba o mismong sa batas natin, mali but for me, its not.

MALI BA ANG GAWIN ANG SA TINGIN MO AY DAPAT at KARAPATDAPAT?

I think Mr pineda sung National Anthem well. Dahil para sa kanya isang malaking karangalan ang kumanta ng pambansang awit ng pilipinas kaya ginawa niya ang best niya. For me, ok naman ang pagkanta niya ng national anthem kc sa aking pagkakaalam ay hirap si Mr. Pineda sa mga mababang kanta kaya ginawa yun na kung saan siya'y mas komportable . Kesa naman po babaan niya ung tono ng kanta na hindi naman bagay sa tono ng boses niya.Na magmumukhang pilit lang na tiyak na madidisappoint ang ilan. Ang sa aking lang po hindi po ako against sa (NHI) siguro para sa akin ang right way para hindi na ito maulit ay makipagusap sila sa singer na aawit ng ating national anthem para po maaga pa lang ay matama na ang mali at hindi na ito lumaki pa. Hope huwag nating ibaling sa kanila ang sisi walang may gusto ng nangyari kasi si Mr. Pineda ay nagvolunteer lang para kumanta ng ating pambansang awit at ipagmalaki na tao'y mga Filipino.

Regarding the Singing of National Anthem by Arnel Pineda...actually wala akong nakikitang masama sa pagkanta niya, he sang with all his heart, yun naman ang importante, ang isapuso ang pagkanta.

I understand the point of NHI, kasama na sa tradisyon natin ang pagkanta ng Pambansang Awit sa tamang musical arrangement at tono nito. Nasusulat din sa batas ang kaukulang kaparusahan sa paglabag dito. Nakikita ko rin ang sinasabi nilang kamalian ni Arnel Pineda.

But, at this point, we live in a modern time and in a democratic country, and as an international singer, he has the right to have his own interpretation of our National Anthem. My point is, Arnel Pineda's respect in our anthem is still present with his singing.

If there is something wrong with his interpretation, since both parties have their own good point; for the benefit of both, I advised Arnel to sincerely apologize since NHI has more basis to support their arguments. In addition, right is different from law, and no one is above the law.

Nakikita ko ang pagiging PROUD ng mga mang-aawit sa twing aawit sila sa laban ni People's Champ. Sayang ok na sana yung objective, kaso ginawa nila sa MALING paraan. May mga maling tono. Yung PROUD, ginawang PRIDE, Nakikipagpataasan ng boses sa National Anthem ng mga Kano. Hindi ba't mas masarap kung gagamitin ng isang mang-aawit ang orihinal na komposisyon ng lupang hinirang? Bukod sa pagiging mababa ng tono, sa ganoong paraan din naipapakita ang pagiging mapagkumbaba ng mga Pilipino.

Bakit natin kailangan isisi sa mga singer ang pagkakamali? Hindi dapat itama natin sila? I mean all of us commits mistake and in every mistake there's a corresponding lesson that we can get. Some people said nobody's perfect. So why we need to put the blame to Mr Pineda. No one want it to happen. Para sa akin hindi rason ang mataas na timbre ng boses as long as ika'y taas noo habang ito'y kinakanta mo. I'm not against on NHI and para ito'y hindi na mangyari ay sana gumagawa ang NHI ng angkop na paraan para hindi na mangyari. I mean bago pa kumanata si Mr. Pineda ay tignan na nila ang musical arangement ng version niya at pati ang tono. Para hindi tayo magsisisi sa huli at walang kaso ang isasampa. Yes may batas na dito bakit para atang delay lagi sila. Pag naiisip ko na bakit sa ibang bansa wala pa akong naririnig na nagreklamo dahil sa maling tono. Ito ba ung sinasabi nating ONLY IN THE PHILIPPINES?

for me importante un pagkanta ng national anthem lalo na sa mga International Occasion, kasi through that nahohonor natin un bansa natin, para sa akin rin, hindi naman importante kung ibang tono un pagkanta nito, as long as alam natin ang ibig sabihin ng kinakanta natin at sinasapuso natin to,mas mabuti. kaysa naman nasa tama nga yung pagkanta tapos hindi naman natin sinasapuso, nonsense lang din na kinanta natin ito.

AMININ MO! MAS MASARAP KUMANTA LALO NA PAG SINASAPUSO MO MALI MAN O TAMA ANG TONO NG PAG KANTA MO..DB?????

sa tingin ko mali ang pagawit ng ating pambansang awit.. ilang beses ba sasabihin na mabilis ang pagawit nito kahit saan mang okasyon di na kailangan pang pagandahin dahil pambansang awit ito. at iisa lang dapat ang pagkanta nito..

n lang!! :))

I feel proud every time that one of my countrymen sings our national anthem in an international event.
It’s a big honour for him to represent the Filipinos by singing our national anthem. For me, the person who is tasked to sing it should know the proper way of singing it.
As an artist, he/she has the right to sing the anthem in his/her own way. But as a Filipino citizen, we are obliged to sing the national anthem properly and correctly.

Good Day, Prof. Anna Rose Hull!!!
As far as I am concerned with that outbreaking issue, there were lots of reasons why I would oppose Arnel Pineda's Artistry Ideology:
1. "Lupang Hinirang" is such an exceptional song or anthem which should be sung exceptionally.
2. Though sad to say, there were already singers who were reprimanded in the past years for that reason and yet he followed them too --- singing the national anthem in the wrong way!
3. Yes, nervousness and excitement might had affected his singing concentration specifically the pitch and the like but speaking of ARTISTRIC FREEDOM, i think it's not excusable. Singing his songs is very much different in singing the national anthem.
After all, there's a room for improvement...Hope, this issue will serve as a lesson to the future singers!!!

Our National Anthem is not an ordinary song that can be sung in our own way or style. Lupang Hinirang "shall be in accordance with the musical arrangement and composition of Julian Felipe." However, when literally followed, this means that the national anthem should only be performed by a pianist or by a brass band, as these were the only versions that were produced by Julian Felipe. Moreover, because the original version was composed in duple time as compared to the present quadruple time, it is uncertain if this will either slow down or even double the music's speed, making it difficult for singers to keep up with the music. Regardless of this, the national anthem is still sung with the lyrics. R.A. 8491 also states that Lupang Hinirang "shall always be sung in the national language" regardless if performed inside or outside the Philippines, and specifies that the singing must be done with fervor.

Ang pagsasapuso sa pagkanta ay hindi "exemption" sa pag-awit ng ating pambansang awit. May sarili itong tono. At gaya nga ng naitype ko kanina, hindi ito ordinaryong kanta na maari nating kantahin sa tono kung saan tayo komportable o sa tonong nais naten. Hindi ito ginawa ni Julian Felipe para ibahin ng ibahin ang tono sa pagkanta. Inuulit ko, "hindi ito dapat kantahin sa tonong TRIP mo."

Hindi sa sinisisi natin si Kuya Arnel Pineda. Alam din nating si Manong Manny ang pumili sa kanya para umawit, ngunit kung titignan natin lahat ng angulo, imposibleng tinuro o dinikta ni Manong Manny kay Kuya Arnel ang tono kung paano nito kakantahin ang Lupang Hinirang. Na kay Kuya Arnel yun kung sa paanong paraan nya ito kakantahin, kung sa paarang gusto nya o sa paarang dapat talaga. Sariling bersyon ito ni Arnel Pineda na para sa akin ay hindi tama dahil mga sa nasabing Law.

Para kay Jarryd..alam naming boxing match yon. pero hindi lang "entertainment" ang rason kung bakit nagpunta ang mga audience dun..laban yon ng dalawang bansa..pangalan ng bansa ang nakataya hindi ang entertainment na sinasabi mo.. isa pa, hindi po ba pangbabastos ang ginawang pag-iba ni Arnel Pineda sa tono ng kanta na alam naman nating wala itong pahintulot sa tunay na gumawa ng kanta (Julian Felipe)..

my reccomendation in this issue is that NHI should enforce their power in choosing who would sing the National Anthem whenever there's an international occassion like every Pacquiao's fight...-- dapat dumaan muna sa kanila ang kakanta ng Lupang Hinirang at turuan ito ng dapat na tono,arrangement o anuman para sa huli walang isyu...

My answer is let his heart belt it out.

Kasi po mas maganda na mas isinasapuso ung pagkanta ng national anthem kahit na hindi perfect ung paraan ng pagkanta nito. Pero siempre pinakamaganda pa rin kung isinapuso na tama pa ang pagkanta.

NOBODY IS PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!

para sa akin, hindi naman mali yung pagkanta ni arnel pineda dahil inexpress niya lang naman ang sarili niya. siguro feel na feel lang nila yung pagkapilipino nila kapag laban ni pacquiao. sana hindi na nila laging sitahin yung mga kumakanta. dapat kasi hayaan na lang nila yung mga artists sa paraan nila provided na hindi nila bababuyin yung kanta or bastusin yung kanta. may ibang bansa nga diyan na hindi nman masyadong mahigpit diyan. hindi nman yun formal event para irestrict yung sarili nila eh.. may limit pa rin nman sila pero nakakadala talaga yan. eh ano kung with feelings silang kumanta...

kung ilalagay ko ang sarili ko sa kalagayan ni Arnel Pineda... tatayo sa harapan ng maraming tao, titingnan ng marami... tiyak ko matutulad lang ako sa kanya. tao tayo, nadadala ng emosyon, nawawala sa wisyo, nakakaramdam ng kaba at higit sa lahat ay nagkakamali. we are prone to faults becasue we are not created perfectly. sa tindi ng halu-halong emosyon kaya nangyari iyun. ang dapat lang naman nating tandaan ay ang paggalang at pagrespeto. para sa akin, kung isinapuso niya ang pagkanta.. walang dapat problemahin. ang pagiging mahusay sa singer ay hindi nasusukat sa galing at pagkabisa ng mga lyrika kundi sa pagsasapuso nito.

Gandang Gabi po!!
nakakalungkot man sabihin na hanggang ngayon, mali pa rin ang pag-kanta ng ating Pambansang Awit sa tuwing may laban ang ating pambansang kamao.. ilAng beses nang napupuna pero wala pa ring pagbabago na nagaganap..

Hindi naman mahirap ang tono at ang tiyempo nito, pero bakit ganon? hindi ko maintindihan, bakit sa tuwing kakantahin ito sa laban ng boxing, laging mali ito. oo, hindi ito formal event pero dapat ung pagkanta ng Lupang Hinirang ay tama padin at pormal.. oo nasa puso ang pagkanta nila nito pero hindi din ba pwede na kantahin ito ng tama.. hindi din naman natin pwedeng sabihin na dahil nadala lang sa pagkanta kaya nagkaganon na naiba ang tono at chempo.. bakit si "Julian Felipe"? nsa puso din naman niya nung ginawa niya ang pambansang awit.. kaya, dapat, kantahin natin ang ating pambansang awit ng tama ang tono at ang chempo kung papaano ito nilikha at nilapatan ng tono ng buong puso..

cguro, mas maganda kung chorale na lang ang pakantahin para makanta ito ng tama. meron pang blending.. mas maganda pa yun kung magka-ganon..

For me, singing the national anthem should be in accordance with the law. We know for a fact that singers have their own style and genre in singing, so we should take into consideration that artists are capable in adjusting tones without setting aside their respect in singing the national anthem.

.well for me, i have 2 sides in giving my opinions about this topic.my "in-favor" and "contradict" sides.this is for arnel and NHI.
(kayo na po bahala maghimay ng 2 sides ko for arnel&NHI. ^__^ )


i appreciate the version of arnel pineda's singing of national anthem.it's good and i know he's proud being a filipino when he was singing that moment. it's from his heart and i know he gave his best. but still, it's not enough to satisfy those critics. everytime n may kumakanta internationally ng national anthem ntin, lging may mga mata at tenga n sumusuri.mas marami pa nga yung "pumalya" sa pagkanta kesa dun sa nakagawa ng maayos. i agree n marahil may faults dn ang singers in singing it but i agree also na dahil singers nga sila, they sang diff. genres of song and make diff. renditions of it to put their "trademarks" on it.para makilala na sila un kumakanta khit pnapakinggan mu lng. but then, the point is to sing a song right and sing it from your heart.on the first point, may pagkukulang nga dun si arnel but dun s second point, he absolutely did it.


pansin ku nga rin pala..dun lagi sa last part ng Lupang Hinirang ung pinupuna ng mga tao.(wel, isa ko dun.inaabangan ku din kc kng mgkkamali ba.hehe).lagi kasing binibirit at pino-prolonged ng mga singers yun like charice and arnel.for me, dun kc nilalagay ng singers un "trademark" nila kaya nila ginagawa un.at dahil sobra nga ang kaibahan nito from d original, they (or we) say na "mali".kaya para sakin, a person should sing the national anthem PROPERLY.bkit?un pagkanta kc from his/her heart is automatically nandun na when he/she was singing.natural pinag-aaralan muna ng singer un song bago nya un i-perform to make his version become the best.the only thing he needs to do is sing it right.un walang anumang bad side comments n maririnig.syempre pride din nya nkasalalay dun.


pero kung lagi na lang din sasabihin ng NHI na mali un pagkanta......edi sila na lang kumanta sa fights ni pacman.!they have their criteria on singing it right so malamang makakanta nila un ng mas tama.or sila na lang pumili ng kakanta.pero kc hindi naman pipiliin ni pacman un singer na un kung alam lang din naman nya na sasablay di ba?


wel,tama na.nadadala nako ng emosyon ko.nyahaha.joke lng.

Ang pagkanta ng Lupang Hinirang sa mga pang ibang bansang okasyon ay nagbibigay parangal at papuri para sa ating mga Pilipino. Lalo na sa mga manganganta na napili upang kantahin ito. Sa aking palagay, hindi naman masama kung may mabago man sa orihinal na kanta. Alam naman nating mahirap itong kantahin, kaya unawain na lang sana natin ang mga mangaawit na binabago ang tono ng kanta sa paraang kaya nila itong awitin.

Good Day!
I was curios about this problem about the singing of the national anthem especially during international occasion. What I notice is that every singer whom tasked to sing the national anthem is always criticize by the public. As far as i know, our national anthem, should be sung in its original rhythm and intensity and other musical elements as it was stated in the constitution. People should not be tasked in singing the national anthem because a real and legitimate Filipino citizen should be expect to sing it by their hearts.
We know that every singers have their own style in singing but i just dont want the way they express the singing of the national anthem, I came up with the idea that it seems that "nagpapayabangan sila", they want to stand out, rather than doing it in the proper way.
Thank You!

sa palagay ko, wala namang laging tama sa pagtingin ng NHI sa pagkanta ng mga singers ng pambansang awit lalo na kapag laban ni pacquiao. kung ako ang nasa posisyon ni arnel pineda, malamang gagawin ko ang best ko para makanta ng wasto ang Lupang Hinirang, ngunit wala namang perpekto lalo na kung ang emosyon ang nangingibabaw. nandun na ang kaba, lalo na ang excitement dahil sa dami ng mga pilipino at ibang lahing nanunuod at nakikinig sayo. wala namang mali sa pagkanta ni arnel pineda, hindi din nakakababa ng pagkapilipino.kung ayaw ng NHI sa mga tulad nila arnel pineda na singers edi sila ang pumili ng kakanta. hindi naman kasalanan ng singers na sila ang piliin ni pacquiao na kumanta ng pambansang awit tapos sila pa yung pag-iinitan. :D

for me,arnel pineda sung it well..san ka naman nakakita ng pareho ang tono ng boses..mas importante na kantahin yung national anthem ng galing sa puso at naramdaman ko naman yon nung kinanta ni arnel pineda.hindi naman din kasi ganun kadali kantahin yon..tsaka bawat laban naman ni pacquiao yung mga kumakanta lagi ang napapansin,at lahat ng kumanta don may komento galing sa mga PERFECT kumanta ng national anthem.edi sana sila na lang ang kumanta sa bawat laban ni pacquiao..haha

Joe Mari said...

although arnel pineda belt it out or express what he feels on stage while performing he must know what a National Anthem really is -- it shows history, traditions and struggles of people for freedom. Can we allow to sing our National Anthem in diffrent ways??? It is becoming a tradition and now's the time to cut it down and turn it to the way it should be. Isa pa kung hahayaan ang ganito, gusto niyo rin bang marinig ang Lupang Hinirang sa ROCK o RAP dahil maaring sa ibang artist ito ang pagexpress nila sa feeling nila db???

para sa akin ayos lang yung ginagawang pagkanta ng mga singer sa national anthem kasi un ung style nila sa pagkanta at pinapakita nila yung kagalingan nila dahil buong mundo ang nanunuod. Lagi na lang napupuna ang mga kumakanta ng national anthem, feeling ko napapahiya tuloy yung mga singer dahil need pa nilang magpublic apology para sa akin ang pagkanta ni Arnel Pineda ay maganda dahil ipinakita niya galing nya sa pagkanta at ang pagsasapuso, pagiging pilipino at pagmamahal sa watawat ng Pilipinas ay naipakita nya.

For an artist to be chosen or requested to sing the national anthem before international crowd is flattering and uneasy all the same.
Arnel Pineda's case is not news after all since it seems to be the "trend" for artists singing Lupang Hinirang on every Manny Pacquiao fights. Pineda's case, regardless of the fact that his voice was shaky when he performed the song, is forgivable. NHI has a point in addressing these cases with the effect of the law. Or what's the worth of establishing such rules if then and again, some are able to violate it without corresponding punishments?
On the other hand, there are more issues and social concerns worthy of this media mileage. The best way to refrain from this bugging issue is to abide by the law's proposition on how to properly sing the national anthem. Through this, NHI won't have the grounds to eye this petty crime and have the media feasting with such futility.

well i would like to respect the observation of NHI because their only concern would be the correct and proper sing of Philippine National Anthem. This is not joke ofcourse, and definitely it is a serious matter. For every artist/ performer who have chosen to sang the anthem, i observed that they perform it with deep sincerity and heartfelt. They are not stupid if they just want to sing it what they want. I think that in that kind of particular occasion,artist should be able to follow their heart

Good day...

The composer of the national anthem give its original rhythm that's why in order to give respect to the composer especially to our country I think it is better if we sung it in one rhythm only because it was a national anthem meaning we must be united even in the way we sing. And it will have a good sounds if the voices will be listened as one voice only.

I think there must be an enough punishment for the people who disobey the way in singing the national anthem like Arnel Pineda. All singers that was chosen by Many Pacquio before are already made the same mistake but then it still not become the way that the next singer will not be like the former singers. they've should have sung it in its original notes.

its fun visualizing a band (yes, yung nakikita natin sa typical pinoy festivities..THAT KIND OF BAND) playing the anthem sa boxing ring.. hehe ;)

wala nang angal ang NHI nun haha..

though malamang magmukhang tanga lang tayo at ang national anthem..

all im saying is, nasa lugar naman ang pagkanta hindi lang ni arnel kundi nung iba pang artists dati (not all).. they didnt stray too far from the right notes naman.oks na yun..

[btw, to some dude who posted here... i really think having PRIDE and being PROUD is pretty much the same thing.. ]

greensalad said...

good evening professor hull,

for me, i think the singer should really be reprimanded.

Mr Arnel Pineda was chosen by the people's champ to represent him and his country thru the national anthem. it is a great honor indeed for him but also a great responsibility.

first of all, Mr. Arnel Pineda should have kept in mind that it was not his fight. he was merely an accessory to Manny Pacquiao, he does not have the liberty to alter and sing the national anthem in his own free will.

para yang kapag may humingi sayo ng tulong para sa isang big event nya, tapos ikaw yung nagpasikat.

another thing i want to mention is that, just because the materials used to make Mr. Pineda's outfit is the same materials used to make barongs doesn't mean that they're the same thing.

hindi porket nilagyan mo ng bunny ears ang tuta ay magiging kuneho na rin un.

in the end, bakit paulit ulit na nangyayari ang ganitong insidente?

hindi kaya likas na sa mga tao ang pagiging makasarili? na bigyan mo ng konting kapangyarihan ay may tendency palagi na abusuhin nila?

for me..arnel pineda sung it well..wala namang perfect e..as long as kinanta nya yon ng wala syang binago sa lyrics at hindi na nya binago ng sobra yung tono ok na..mas importante rin na kantahin yon ng galing sa puso..para mas ma feel ng mga mkakarinig na pilipino sila at dapat silang maging proud..laban ni pacquiao yung importante don at hindi yung pagkakanta ng perfect yung national anthem..

Bella Swan said...

First of all, good afternoon to everyone. Since it had been a tradition to sing the national anthem in every sporting event, the singing of the Philippine National Anthem should always make Filipinos around the world really proud and since Manny Pacquiao is in demand in boxing, we always hear our national anthem being sang and not only Filipinos can hear but also people of other nationality. Well, we know the tune but others don’t and I think they are really confused about it since we have not been receiving any consistency on the tune lately.
I’ve never been a fan of Manny Pacquiao and the only portion that I’m interested during his fight is the singing of the national anthem. Me and my mom would always want to see if the singing of the Lupang Hinirang would be good and so far, we are still disappointed. I don’t understand the reason why singers should belt the anthem to their hearts content. Is it to show the world that they can sing a very high note? What’s the logic in that?
I think, changing the tune of the Lupang Hinirang to whatever genre they want to change it is really disrespectful and if I can sue them, I would. I don’t understand why the National Historical Institute has not taken any action about all of this until now. Actually there is an enacted law on this. According to R.A. 8491 “Lupang Hinirang “shall be in accordance with the musical arrangement and composition of Julian Felipe.”
Our National Anthem is a symbol of our country, and it should always be sung properly just like other countries do. The government should also take an action on this or else, this will never stop. Many cases had been filed but no one is prosecuted.

i don't see anything wrong with the way mr. arnel pineda sang the national anthem..
for me... owkei lng nman ang pagkanta niya ng national Anthem, khit nde nia cnunod ang tamang tono nito! (nde nman maxadong nbago..xcept s last part) ang mahalga kinanta nya ito with his heart, yun naman ang importante, d'b..?
..isa pa, the way na kumanta si arnel, mataas taLaga, hirap ata sya s mababa ehh.. so he sang it in his own way, he only put his own signature to the song..

For me, our national anthem should be sang in accordance with the original tune. Because this anthem represents our own country and everyone should sing it properly as a sign of respect for the compositor of it.
Singers can sing other songs on their own style for originality but not with this.

What puzzles me is how come these incidents follow suit one after the other when there is clearly a law stating that the National Anthem should be sung "in accordance with the musical arrangement and composition of Julian Felipe." Is it because of the NHI's neglect to pursue the matter? I hardly think so.

It should be the chosen artist's responsibility to sing the song which represents us as a country in the proper way it should be sung. Artistry is not an issue for the artist was called upon to serve the country, which is a task not to be taken lightly. This task unfortunately is demanding enough in this case to file complaints if the delivery was found wanting. Of course, they are still to be commended for their efforts on uniqueness and artistry but I dare say that in these occasions, it is uncalled for.

Sa totoo lang, hindi ko masyadong namalian ung pagakanta. pero, hindi naman ako ang NHI.

Anyway, kung sinabi na ng institusyon na 'yun na mali nga, may mali nga siguro.

Pero, try kaya nila (NHI) tanungin ang sarili nila kung bakit lagi na lang may mali?

Posible kaya na mismong mga mang-aawit ay hindi tunay na alam kung ano ba ang tamang pag-awit?

Kung alam man nila kung ano nga ang tamang pagkanta, bakit kaya iniiba pa rin nila?

Posible kaya na ang dahilan nila eh wala namang nakukulong sa pag-awit ng mali kaya artistic chorva na lang ang pinaiiral nila.

Palagay ko, pag may nasanction na dati dahil sa maling pagkanta, wala ng magtatangkang ibahin pa ang pag-awit ng orig na 'Lupang Hinirang'.

Malayo na ata ako sa topic. hehe.

Ang mali, mali talaga. pero bakit kaya laging may nagkakamali?

Ang mali, mali talaga. Pero bakit kaya may mga umuulit o nauulit pa ring pagkakamali??

Good Day!

Im favor to let the singer sings the national anthem in an international occasion through his/her heart, because I believe that the real essence of singing cant be measure in the way they sing the national anthem as long as they oath and give the exact words and letters which can deliver the message of the song clearly.

Secondly, the message and its essence can be greatly deliver to the audience if it will be sing from the heart cause the feelings can be a great factor in creating the bond among the Filipino and the world. And as a Filipino im proud if a local singer will be singing our national anthem in an international occasion cause it can prove to the world how great the Filipino singers are.

Good day!!
This is always issue. Tuwing may boxing match, pangalawa sa pinagtutuunan ng pansin ng taong bayan ay ang pagkanta ng National Anthem.

Bakit ba? Mali nga kaya?

Ano ba ang tamang pag-awit?

Actually, I’m not after how the National Anthem was sung. Pero, dahil naging talk of the town ito, nakikisali na rin ako.

Sabi nga sa dyaryo, super pangit daw ng pagkakanta ni Arnel Pineda ng anthem natin at take note halos malagutan na raw siya ng hininga. Grabe, naman! Hindi naman super pangit, tingin ko artstic style niya lang yung pinairal niya. Hindi naman pangit, hindi rin naman maganda. Feel na feel niya kasi masyado yung kanta.

Even so, next time dapat siguro kantahin na lang siya in the right way it should be sung. Medyo, kakaiba kasi sa pandinig ng tao eh. Kaya lagi napapansin. Paano nga ba iyon? (pang-martsa ang style??Right??)

Ang problema sa mga kumakanta ng ating pambansang awit ay karamihan sa mga mang-aawit lalu na sa mga kumakanta sa laban ni Manny sa kanyang mga laban, gumagawa sila ng kani-kanilang bersyo na siyang paglabag sa batas. Hindi naman nila kailangan na pahirapan ang kanilang mga sarili, ang kailangan lang ay kantahin nila ito ng buong puso na may buong pagmamalaki sa mga banyaga at igalang nila ang orihinal na bersyo nito. Mas mainam kung bigyang pagpapahalaga ito sa paaralan na ituro sa mga bata pa lamang ang tama o wastong pag-awit ng Lupang Hinirang.

For me, there's nothing wrong in singing our national anthem and belting it all out. As long as the who is asked to sing it will be singing it with respect, and honor then it's ok! Maybe he's just too proud and was carried away with his emotions especially that boxing match is not just a simple event, but it's an event where Filipino's pride will be fighting. So long as the singing is from the heart, then there's nothing wrong with it.

In my own opinion dapat talaga kantahin ung National Anthem natin based on the original composition not only because it is mandated by our law but also because the making of the National Anthem is an important part of our rich culture and history. No matter what our profession is, we should sing the National Anthem with uniformity. Kaya nga may batas na ginawa para kantahin ng maayos ang Lupang Hinirang. Ang batas ginawa para sundin. Kung ang ginagawa nilang excuse ay kinanta naman nila with nationalism and with all their heart ung kanta, and feeling nila it doesn't make them less of a Filipino to have it their way, well they better think twice because, again in my own opinion, it makes you less nationalistic and less Filipino if you don't know how to follow the rules of your own country. And also, it doesn't make you less of an artist if you will sing the National Anthem with it's original beat since it was composed by a well known composer of our History.. something that we should be proud of.. and we can show that we are proud of it by singing on its original version/beat and with all our heart.

Para sa akin, ang pag-awit ng Lupang Hinirang ay dapat naaayon sa nota.

"Ano ba ang bago? 'Yong traditional na pagkanta ng 'Lupang Hinirang' ang gusto nilang marinig. On my part, I'm just doing my artistic freedom. I was there as Filipino representing Pacquiao and the Philippines. 'Yun ang importante," Pineda added.

from: http://ph.news.yahoo.com/abs/20100316/tph-journey-s-arnel-pineda-says-sorry-to-85c5a6c.htm

Yan ang hirap sa Pinoy. WE are living in a Democratic and Republican country. Kaya lang we really don't know our responsibility in every right we were given.

Revising the anthem is like revising our own nationality. Our own history. Singing the Lupang Hinirang itself is JUST one of the ways in showing our patriotism to our beloved country.

[e di sana kinanta ko na nang pa-rakenrol ang anthem nung elementarya palangh ako]

If a person should sing our National Anthem Internationally, I believe that he/she should really be singing it in its original composition/tune. It is a way of paying respect to our country and to our countrymen as well. That he/she is singing not just for fame but for dignity and for the love of our country. You see, I don't care if it's Charice, Arnel or Martin who is tasked to sing it, for me, he/she should be a true blood Filipino and singing not with his/her heart out, but singing with his/her heart in it.

for me, parang nabastos n'ya ang bayang Pilipinas. He have not given justice to the song. The song must be sang following its composition. I'm referring about the piece of it, or its musical arrangement. Hindi n'ya kailangang biritan ang kanta where in fact wala namang birit part sa ating pambansang awit. For me, napaka-frustrated n'ya sa pagkanta. "Sorry for the term."

for me there's nothing wrong with the way arnel pineda sang our national anthem. he sang with all his heart and as an artist it is his way of expressing himself. its just the law that which made it wrong and as a member of this society we should follow the rules which is implemented by the government.

Inaayunan ko ang NHI na marapat lamang na awitin ang Lupang Hinirang nang ayon sa komposisyon ni Julian Felipe na may kumpas na 3/4.Sapagkat ang ating pambansang awit ay may sariling pagkakakilanlan.Let us respect the identity of the song.Hindi natin ito dapat kantahin nang ayon lamang sa kani-kanyang panlasa kundi sa nakatalagang pag-awit dito.Kung pahihintulutan ang ganoon,ay ano na lamang ang ikinaiba nito sa iba pang kanta?Hindi lahat ay may boses na kayang bumirit birit,kaya't upang ang lahat ay makasunod, DAPAT AY IISA LAMANG ANG PARAAN NG PAG-AWIT SA LUPANG HINIRANG.Anu pa man ang okasyon.

The singing of the National Anthem should be sing it properly since it is the landmark of our Country and of course to give credit to the composer of our National Anthem we must sing it in a proper tune and melody.

Para mo sakin ma'am.. ang pagkanta ng ating pambansang awit ay dapat kantahin sa kung paano talaga dapat ito kantahin. Nakakalungkot po kasing isipin na binabago ang nota nito ng mga kumakanta dahil nagmumuka silang walang galang sa bayan at sa kasaysayan ng ating bansa.. lalo na sa ating watawat. Ang ating pambansang awit ay dapat kinakanta sa tamng paraan kahit anong okasyon man ang meron pormal, o di pormal. Dahil ang tamang pagkanta sa ating pambansang awit ang sumasalamin sa kung anong kaugalian, pananaw at pagmamahal meron tayo sa ating bayan na sa aking pananaw ay nakikita rin ng mga dayuhan.

A lesson learned in all fights of Pacquiao was the wrong way of singing by the singer.
In singing our National anthem it’s important that we should sing it through the heart, at the same time we should acknowledged the people behind the composition of it. Maybe, consultation to the experts before singing t to a big event like Pacquiao’s fight should be done.

For me, singing our National Anthem in a very big event is a very responsible act. marami ang nakakakitang kritiko na masasabi namang tama ang mga binibitawang kumento. Hindi ito kinakanta ng parang wala lang na magpasikat sa kung paano ito gustong kantahin masabi lang na kaya nilang abutin ang mataas na tono. hindi naman ganoon ang arrangement ng piyesa nito. Ito ay dapat kantahin sa tamang paraan at hindi sa pansariling istilo ng pagkanta.

sa totoo lang, kapag lumalaban si pacquaio hindi lang mismong laban ni pacman yung inaabangan, pati na rin yung pagkanta ng national anthem at yung pagsita na naman sa rendition nila... mali naman talaga na kinakanta nila in their own way e, kasi nga merong tamang way na pagkanta at may batas na nagcocover dun...kaso as an artist, naniniwala sila na it's more beautiful kung kakantahin nila yun ng galing sa puso at sarili nilang style. well, ilang beses man natin silang sitahin...kung nandun na sila sa ring, di na natin sila mapipigilan...kasuhan man sila... nagawa na nila e.. magsorry na lang sila at magpractice pa ng maigi ng pagkanta ng national anthe..

Nari-realize ko na nga talaga ang disadvantages ng pagiging bahagi ko ng isang konserbatibong lipunan. Ano naman kung taliwas ang pagkakaawit sa orihinal na komposisyon? Lalo na ang pambansang awit natin. Sa school nga namin dati kinakanta namin nang mas mabagal sa orihinal nitong bilis kasi mahirap kaya kantahin kapag mabilis. Hindi naman din lahat sa klase namin ay mga propesyonal na mangaawit para alamin ang naaangkop na bilis ng "Lupang Hinirang". So ano? Makakasuhan ba kami sa aming paglabag? Eh, pano din eh once nagkamali ako sa lyrics dahil kinakabahan ako nun? So bastos na ba akong maituturing? Ikulong niyo na ako o pagmultahin. Lalo lang mapatutunayan na walng hustisya dito sa Pilipinas kung hindi ako maparurusahan. Kung tutuusin, hindi nga tinuro sa amin ng mga guro namin sa elementarya ang tamang pag-awit eh.

Hindi praktikal ang gusto nilang mangyari.Kahit paano naman ayos lang basta may paggalang at pagmamalaki ang pagkakaawit ng National Anthem natin. Mas maganda naman talagang kumanta nang galing talaga sa puso dahil may affective impact ito. Huwag ito kantahin gamit lamang ang dila, lalamunan at diaphragm;mas okay kung sasamahan ng puso at diwang makabayan at makaPilipino.
