A new month calls for something new and exciting. And what better way to start the month than with new music?
With all the negativity that's been circulating these past months, Quest's new inspirational track is just what we need to start anew. His latest offering titled "Sasamahan Kita" is a reminder to everyone out there that there is someone that cares for your and your dreams.
As a big dreamer himself, Quest emphasizes the importance of never giving up. He says, "It is important to have a dream, it drives you, it fuels you, hindi ka aandar kung wala kang pangarap."
He also advocates getting an education, looking up to teachers, and having the right mentors, aspiring to be an inspiration to others as well. "the lessons that they learned — all of those, I am in a position to do it for todays youth. Carrying on tradition.”
Growing up in poverty, Quest looked to a lot of people to encourage him to dream. “I had to learn that I need to surround myself with the right people. No one ever makes it by themselves, love is a sacrifice – people who love you make sacrifices. And with their sacrifices, I’m thankful for.”
“We’re living at a time where there are a lot of discouraging things around us, these people gave me the confidence I needed to dream and achieve, no matter how small. Malaking tulong sila sa akin.”
After all he's been through, Quest has a message to the youth: "Find your dream within, find a team who will champion your purpose and help you achieve it!”
If you need a little push, here are a few lines from his latest single.
Kaming aalalay, iyong kaagapay
Sa bawat hakbang meron kang karamay Hanggang sa tagumpay,
Ang imposible ay kaya
Basta sama sama
Kaya huwag magalala
