Simeon's Canticle Music Video

Hangad released the music video for Simeon's Canticle, featuring vignettes of people who have provided community service (for example, former Philippine Health undersecretary Jaime Galvez Tan, M.D.). The video, as in other Hangad music videos, feature Hangad itself near the end).

Although Simeon's Canticle was originally released at the Hangad debut album's CD version, the music video was produced only after Pasko Naming Hangad was published. It was shown on major television stations and still enjoys regular broadcasts on RPN and IBC.
