For those who are unfamiliar with Davey Langit, he kicked off his career as one of the contestants of Pinoy Dream Academy’s (PDA) first season back in 2006. Though he did not win back then, Davey continued to hone his songwriting skills, until he bagged the grand prize at Himig Handog P-Pop 2016 for "Dalawang Letra." Let's take a look at four lines from the song, and how it inspires every dreamer out there, in both love and life:
1. "Hindi ko malaman, kung saan pupunta. Ang tono nitong kanta, pababa, pataas tumatalon talon." In the 10 years he has been in the industry, Davey was not sure where his career will bring him, following his loss in PDA, where Yeng Constantino eventually emerged as the grand winner.
2. "Gagawin ko ang lahat, baka sakaling sa wakas ay marinig." Davey shared his songwriting skills by creating masterpieces for singers like Yeng Constantino and movies like Katas ng Saudi and Magkaibigan, and even collaborated with internet stars, couple JaMich, for Selfie Song, where he caught the attention of netizens.
3. "Ang puso ko'y sa'yo, sagutin mo lang ako ng Oo, oo, woah. Oo, oo, woah." Davey have tried out for P-Pop thrice since 2014. Though he bagged first runner up in 2015, he reached the promised land on his third try. Some things are worth the wait, even if it means trying over and over again.
4. "Ayoko na sa'yo, makakahanap din ako." Davey has moved on from his past disappointments. In fact, he is happy and #blessed, now that he has a song that has given him the due recognition he has been working hard for for all these years. Itchyworms performing the song makes the whole experience even sweeter for Davey.
