Published on: Nov 2, 2010 - 9:38am


World champion boxer Manny Pacquiao can now add the title 'recording artist' to his belt. In the middle of his training for the November 13 bout against Antonio Margarito, he recorded a new version of 'Sometimes When We Touch' with balladeer Dan Gil, reports GMANews.TV. Dan Hill wrote the ballad in 1977 and was released in 1978.

"Manny has this sort of sweetness and earnestness and a gentleness when he sings [the song], that is very powerful and alluring," Hill told 24 Oras. Pacquiao admitted that he was nervous about going into the recording studio with Hill.  "I feel scared...[more] than boxing, you know," he told Chino Trinidad of 24 Oras.

Pacquiao's fight with Mexico’s Antonio “Tijuana Tornado" Margarito is on November 13 (November 14, Sunday in Manila) at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

    Langya naman, sa mga comments nyo, lumalabas ang typical na ugaling pinoy paninira sa kapwa sa halip na appreciation, dahil sa inggit, na di nla kaya ang mga katangian ni Manny. Mabuti pa si Jimmy Kimmil malaki ang paghanga nya ky Manny, pero ang mga kapinoy nya sinisiraan pa, subukan nyo ngang lumagay sa kakayanan ni Manny, sa totoo lng pati tumbong nyo mangngnig sa nervious, oh ano di ba?

    mga pare, wag namang pessimistic at wag din complacent. ang ginangawa ni money is plain promotion. he is the new face of boxing and he's hot. yung guesting nya sa jimmy kimmel show was part of the promotion for this fight. may approval yan ng promoter. in fact the more tv guest appearance and media exposures will mean more subscribers will buy this pay per view fight, aba'y mga $ 49.99 per household ang charge ng hbo sa america. may porsiyento si manny dyan. manalo or matalo sya, he will make more money that margarito.rnrnito namang si margarito eh hindi naiimbitahan sa mga ganyang shows at duet dahil sya ang challenger at di pa gano'ng kilala. pag sya nag=promote, baka walang manood. rnrnso cool lang mga pare. tuloy ang pustahan.

    as far as i watched in their HBO's 24/7, margarito is really focused on their fight which is opposite to manny. if manny continues this waste of time in other businesses, he will definitely lose to margarito. rnrnWill manny still be the Filipino pride after he [might] lose to margarito?

    inggit lang kayo dahil dehins kayo ang ka-duet ni pareng dan hill. praktis pa lang ang napanood nyo. bago i-released and duet nila, i-eksena muna ang mga sound engineer, mixer at kung sino-sino pang expert sa recording para i-edit at i-retoke ang mga dapat ayusin. by the time you hear the finished product, diretcho na ang dila ni manny.rnrnbtw, hirap magtraining, kayo nga ang tumakbo ng isang milya uphill. tingnan ko lang kung diretcho pa dila nyo never mind na ang mga tiklop nyong tuhod. uki-duki?

    instead of concentrating on training, kung ano anong kalokohan ang ginagawa, i will not be surprised if he loses this fight. Manny may have many talents but singing is not one of them.Seriously.

    Does it totally escape Manny that the whole world is making fun of his singing? Jeez. Jimmy Kimmel had him sing with Will Ferrell, isn't that clue enough?

    Sometimes when we TATS...rnrnSeriously why is this sh*t being allowed to happen? Isn't he a congressman? Shouldn't there be a law requiring him to actually fulfill his duties and not go off on training and boxing matches and inane recording sessions?rnrnFocus, Manny, focus! Pick an occupation and commit.
