|March 30,2020 - 11:51 AMCEBU CITY, Philippines— A Cebuano netizen came up with an inspiring video montage of the famous Micheal Jackson song “Heal the World,” which he shared online on March 28, 2020, in line with the celebration of Earth Hour 2020.Viel Rusiana, 32, working in an IT company in Cebu, initiated a video wherein he invited some of his Facebook friends from Cebu and outside Cebu to join in singing Michael Jackson’s song, “Heal the World.”
He said he got the idea from international celebrity, Gal Gadot.“I came across what Gal Gadot did with her celebrity friends while at home quarantine and I thought of doing the same. Later that evening, I started to compose a message inviting friends to hopefully join my project and sent them via messenger,” he said.
It was on March 21, 2020 that he started cascading the message to his friends, and luckily within a few days, he got all the videos and started making the video montage and uploaded it on his Facebook page on March 28.“I started gathering videos via Messenger and for some through e-mail since March 21, 2020. I got the last clip and was able to finish editing the video on March 28, 2020,” he added.
