… For Daniel, Isang Araw Lang is more than just a song but a call for selfless volunteerism. The message is to motivate people to do good even for just one day in a year.
As host of public-service morning program Good Morning, Kuya! on UNTV 37 and known popularly as Mr. Public Service, Daniel has been spearheading many projects for the indigent. These include Clinic ni Kuya, which gives free medical and dental check-ups, consultations with optometrists, opthalmologists, and obstetricians/gynecologists, along with free medicine and laboratory tests daily;Libreng Sakay sa Bus (Free Bus Ride); Libreng Sakay sa MRT; Munting Pangarap, a weekly wish-fulfilling service to help the less-privileged; Law Center ni Kuya, in which a group of lawyers provide free legal consultations; Job Fair ni Kuya for job seekers and the free Transient Home, a project with Bro. Eli Soriano, host of Ang Dating Daan. A recent project is a free college program at La Verdad Christian College in Metro Manila which will provide scholarships to deserving youth.

It was a phenomenal feat, Daniel Razon’s second album entitled “Isang Araw Lang” acquiring gold status on its first day of release. This was actually his goal – to make the album a Gold Record awardee in a day’s time, thus the title, “Isang Araw Lang.” The song was composed by Krist Melecio.
This is a follow-up to Daniel’s maiden album “In My Eyes” which went platinum…
… With all his visible endeavors, it is apparent that the man really walks his talk. Asked why his campaign is called “Just One Day,” he simply answers, I’ll leave that for you to answer… in UNTV, we do it every day.”

HALOS hindi mahulugang karayom ang Araneta Coliseum noong Lunes dahil ginanap ang YCONCON The Sequel: Isang Araw Lang concert at album launching ni Kuya Daniel Razon…
… Tulad ng naunang fund-raising concert event noong 2006, matagumpay ang sequel na tinampukan ng Pupil, Sugarfree, Shamrock, Itchyworms gayundin nina Kiko Reyes ng The Dawn, at ng soul siren na si Nina. Siyempre hindi rin nawala si Kuya Daniel na nanggaling pa ng Dubai at umuwi lamang muli ng Pinas para sa concert at album launching. Bukod sa marami ang taong nanood, ikinatuwa rin ni Kuya Daniel ang paggagawad sa kanya ng Gold Record Awards dahil nakabenta ng 12,500 copies sa araw na ‘yun lamang ang kanyang ikalawang album. Bale first time na nangyari ito sa recording history.
Muchas gracias amigos!!!
More power to Kuya Daniel Razon!!!
