Being one of the biggest stars not only of the Kapamilya network but of the whole local entertainment scene, not to mention being the lead star and director of one of the most successful and longest-running teleseryes in the history of television, Coco Martin’s presence in the Christmas station IDs of ABS-CBN through the years has been highly anticipated.

Thus, his ardent followers, as well as those who have been waiting for the release of this year’s Yuletide anthem, were absolutely thrilled to spot him on the music video that was released last November 18.
And on that same day, a video blog showing the award-winning actor’s behind-the-scene moments during the shoot was uploaded on his self-titled official YouTube channel, which has now raked in more than 64 thousand views as of this writing.

On that vlog, we could see his arrival at the ABS-CBN Compound by riding in his sleek and handsome vehicle and happily greeting every person he knew from the lobby, to the hallways, up to the Studio 4 of the network where the stars were gathered prior to the shoot.
Opting for the navy blue “Family Is Forever” shirt, Coco enthusiastically roamed around and chatted with his co-stars in FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano and mingled with his celebrity friends who were also present in the event. He also had the chance to talk with the ABS-CBN bosses, namely Head for Broadcast Cory Vidanes, Chairman Mark Lopez, President and CEO Carlo L. Katigbak, and Chief Content Officer and Maalaala Mo Kaya host Charo Santos-Concio.
On the Christmas station ID, we could see him and his FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano co-stars ushering the Noblezada Family, whose inspiring story was featured in the 2018 “Family Is Love” music video. He was then spotted standing alongside veteran actress and co-star Susan Roces and ma’am Charo.
Sharing the relevance of this year’s theme to him personally, Coco stated, “Family is forever dahil siya ang pinakamahalagang bagay sa akin, saka ito ang rason kung bakit ako gumigising sa umaga [at] nagtratrabaho.”
