Test Broadcast 2, acknowledging God first; next, those who guide us


In Araneta Coliseum, 26 January 2009, Kuya Daniel imparted, “Kung mauuna man ako sa inyo, gusto ko lang sabihin (If I'll be put to rest first, I just want to say) - I made it through the rain.”

After 13 November of 2006, the Araneta Coliseum, Philippines, was once again filled with people who revisited their hearts to acknowledge those people who defended and sought  justice, mercy, and faith in their own little way by practicing freedom of expression and press freedom.

The organizers which include, Breakthrough and Milestones Productions International and UNTV, handled the event entitled, “Test Broadcast 2,” a second tribute and benefit concert, last 26 of January, 2009 at 7:30  p.m., Monday.  It was also a gathering of radio and TV broadcasters in the Philippines.

Acknowledgments were given, not only for the courageous and deceased journalists and broadcasters, but also several Lifetime Achievement Award were given to those who are still living and deserving such appreciation and tribute.

Ms. Rosa Rosal also accepted her Lifetime Achievement Award.  She was thankful that the award was given to her while she’s still alive and said that, “I know God will take care of me.”

Some of the families of slained journalists accepted the tributes personally, which include financial help, including scholarship certificates, for their children. In between the awardings, several invited guests, awardees, and brethren have rendered songs.


Heber Bartolome singing, "Tayo'y mga Pinoy/ We are Filipinos" (Pinoy: a Tagalog slang for Filipino). He also rendered a biblical song about Faith, Hope and Charity/Love.

Before the concert and the awarding finally ended, Brother Eli Soriano and Brother Daniel Razon gave their each own parting words. Brother Eli  greeted the audience with a song rendition via live video streaming. He recalls with the audience how Ang Dating Daan program, despite of persecutions, remained broadcasting the Truth because of God.

Former Senator, Edgar “Kuya Eddie” Ilarde, passed his title as “Kuya” (which means, older brother) to Daniel “Kuya Daniel” Razon.

Kuya Daniel also reminded the audience that even if others do not recognise our deeds, there is One up there to recognise them at the end – He gave thanks to God. Kuya Daniel imparted what Brother Eli told him long ago, “there is no good deed that will result to bad.”
