GMA Network celebrates Yuletide magic

ll things are possible if we believe in the magic that the Yuletide season brings. This is what GMA Network tells its viewers in its Christmas campaign this year dubbed, “Walang Imposible Sa Pasko ng Kapuso,” which premiers on Monday, November 5 in 24 Oras.

Through four equally heartwarming vignettes, the Kapuso Station takes viewers to a special place where dreams become a reality if one will only believe in the true meaning of the Season.

The first vignette “Bituin” highlights the magical feeling found in making a child’s wish come true as a little boy, determined to play the lead role in a Nativity play, receives a big surprise from his parents.

The joy of spending Christmas with the entire family is given focus in the second vignette, “Handa,” where a couple living abroad reminisces about spending Christmas in the Philippines.

Meanwhile, another vignette, “Karoling” tells how Christmas can open doors of unexpected opportunities. Here, a teenage boy, who finds it difficult to approach his long-time crush, gets a necessary push from his friends, making way for an unexpected encounter between the two.

Finally, in “Puting Pasko,” a woman dreams of having a white Christmas in the Philippines. In the spirit of love, her husband goes the extra mile and grants his wife’s winter wonderland wish.

With this campaign, GMA wishes to bring forth the far greater joy that giving brings especially during the Holiday season.

After writing her last album (Speak Now) entirely by herself, for this record Taylor collaborated with several artists, producers, and songwriters she had always wanted to work with.“For the last two years, I’ve been working on an album called Red,” Taylor says. “I called it Red because of the tumultuous, crazy adventures in love and loss that it chronicles. In my mind, when you experience love that’s fast paced and out of control and mixes infatuation, jealousy, frustration, miscommunication, and all of those lovely emotions… in retrospect, it all looks red.” Continue reading
