HSBC Philippines

Asia’s Pop Diva Julie Anne San Jose’s acapella cover of Stand By Me is inspiring people and netizens in the Philippines now under quarantine to stop the spread of the coronavirus disease or COVID-19.

The multi-awarded Filipino singer, who was recently made an ambassador for the National Commission for Culture and the Arts, posted her YouTube video on March 16, 2020, as the island of Luzon was declared under quarantine by the Philippine government.

“Sending some light to everyone 🙏🏻,” San Jose wrote in the caption of the YouTube video of the song originally performed and written in 1961 by American singer-songwriter Ben E. King. The song has been covered by famous artists such as John Lennon, U2, and Bruce Springsteen, and Tracy Chapman. The song was featured on the soundtrack of the 1986 film, Stand by Me.

The YouTube video showed Julie Anne San Jose in four screens, as one of her versions was singing the song, the other three were providing the music and backup. YouTubers were wowed Julie Anne San Jose’s acapella rendition, with Christina Joy Boter Garcia asking the singer to do more acapella cover.

Ajay Sison even proclaimed, “Julie’s voice is the cure for everything that’s going on right now as Luzon and NCR are going through enhanced community quarantine to stop the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the Philippines.”

Duu Sie commented, “Thank you for this Jules. In this world full of issues about COVID.. Let’s stand by one”.

Stand By Me lyrics to sing along with as you watch the video here:

When the night has come, and the way is dark,
And that moon is the only light you see.
No I won’t be afraid, no I-I-I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand and stand by me.

Darlin’ darlin’ stand by me, ooh stand by me Oh stand
Stand stand by me C’mon stand by me stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Well should tumble and fall
And the mountains should crumble to the sea
I won’t cry, I won’t cry, no I won’t she’d a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

Oh darling, darling stand by me, oh stand by me,
Oh please stand, stand by me, stand by me.

Oh darling, darling stand by me, oh stand by me,
Please stand, stand by me, stand by me.
