Power of Two
Now the parking lot is empty, Everyone's gone someplace...
This Virtual Choir rendition features the different generations of women of MCS, who are performing from different parts of the globe. Altos and sopranos who are medical professionals, educators, practicing lawyers, working in corporate and finance, successful entrepreneurs, while saving the day as mothers, sisters, and daughters.
Power of Two is the 5th track from Swamp Ophelia (1994) by the Indigo Girls.
This all-female arrangement by Robert Delgado, commissioned by MCS in 2002, has always been a favorite at MCS' concerts. Every batch of singers would have a story about it — amusing, (un)forgettable, heartwarming. This virtual choir project also brings back memories when the men of MCS would step back and make way for the ladies who would then take the spotlight.
Mabel Cruz - a pioneer soprano of MCS - is singing her signature solo from Dubai, joined by a current soprano, Egelmar Dalupang from Bulacan, Philippines.
Adding up the total of a love that's true. Multiply life by the power of two.
Let this rendition remind us that we have the power within to uplift everyone around us, and that as long as we are with the person/s we love, nothing else matters.
- DK ZM (Alto 2)
