SINGER-songwriter Ogie Alcasid released his newest self-penned single, “Thank You, Pa,” which he considers “a gift for all amazing dads out there.”

“This is a song that I wrote for my dad just in time for Father’s Day,” said the multi-awarded artist, who wrote the tribute song after the passing of his greatest influence and mentor, his dad Herminio Alcasid Sr., who died last September.

“Thank You, Pa” evokes gratefulness to fathers who believe in their children and encourage them not to be afraid to pursue their dreams. It also expresses a deep longing for dads who are now watching their kids from heaven.

Ogie co-produced the single with ABS-CBN Music creative director Jonathan Manalo. The song was arranged by Bobby Velasco and released under Star Music.

Fresh from the success of his “Kilabotitos: The Repeat” virtual concert with Ian Veneracion, Ogie also released a novelty song early this year entitled “Maga Ako, Manas Ako” featuring his alter egos Eydie Waw and The Wawettes. The OPM icon, who served as a juror in the recently concluded “Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 3,” is also a mainstay on “ASAP Nation ‘To.”
