After winning Himig Handog 2017 with her Billboard Philippines chart-topping hit “Titibo-Tibo,” Moira Dela Torre takes things slow with a surprise acoustic cover of “Baby Shark.”
A tweet from Twitter user @MarkLimpinnn surfaced on Filipino Tweets That Matter, saying, “Siguro kahit Baby Shark kantahin ni Moira maiiyak ako.” Dela Torre picked up on it, and promised to do a cover of the viral song should she win the songwriting competition.
“I cried because Jason (Marvin) mentioned something about my Lola being proud of me right before we sang and felt sad I couldn’t share this victory with her,” Dela Torre says. “So when Lola Shark came up, I lost it.”
