DECEMBER AVENUE Covers "Umaaraw, Umuulan" For 'RICO BLANCO Songbook' Project
December Avenue was the first artist revealed for Viva Records' Rico Blanco Songbook project which features re-imagined versions of the veteran singer-songwriter's most memorable hits.
The popular band covered Rivermaya's "Umaaraw, Umuulan" which is one of their favorite Rico Blanco songs. While they're not part of the Viva Records roster, the "Kung Di Rin Lang Ikaw" hitmakers jumped at the chance to pay tribute to one of OPM's greatest songwriters.
"Personally, Rico is one of my musical heroes. Growing up listening to his songs heavily influenced my passion for music," Dec Ave lead singer Zel Bautista revealed in a press release. Listen to their version of "Umaaraw, Umuulan" below:
