Hawak Kamay (Holding Hands)

I am not sure if the correct translation of the song's title, Hawak Kamay, is really "Holding Hands". But based on the lyrics, it seems like that. The song is about encouragement. The singer tells her friend or loved one that some times life can be very difficult but he/she should not lose hope or give up, but to be assured that there is another who can help. The singer assures her friend that she is always there to hold his/her hands and together they can journey through the midst of life's difficulties and ambiguities. As well, she encourages her friend to keep looking up to heaven, for divine intervention. The music/melody is also very good and her voice is so wonderful. Listening to the song really pulls at the heartstrings. No wonder it has become very popular. It speaks to the very heart of people. I have a video somewhere of my nieces singing this song when we went home to visit last April 2007. There are many links that can be found on the internet and here is one:
