Do you guys remember Yman? The singer-songwriter and a finalist from the 1996 METROPOP SONG FESTIVAL behind “Di Ako Marunong Kumanta”? Well, he just released a new composition! He also wrote “Sa Yong Mundo” both from the ‘90s. “Rain Song” is the first song from his new album with tracks that reflect his world travels.
Let me tell you a short story about how I met Yman. Well, I met him in two different situations. First through his songs. Back in the days, I’m a huge fan of METROPOP Festivals. His songs I mentioned from the 90s remain my favorite composition until now. My second encounter with him was thru an actual acquaintance. I met Jojo as a colleague in media. Sometimes we sat together in events, we cover press conference and we even got the chance to travel together internationally in promoting a tourist destination.
Nice person as he is, I didn’t know that he is the guy behind all these! The guy who composed some of my favorite songs! That cracks the hell out of me. I only knew it was him when few months back, (long before this official release) he asked me for an opinion about this specific song.
Well I am glad to have met and became friends with him, because I can eagerly convince him to write more. Because he is just that good! Let’s listen here.
