Christian Bautista's apology more than made up for his blunder of forgetting a couple of lines in the Philippine National Anthem. As I commented in another blog, forgetting some lines is nothing worth more than a few laughs. His apology (its probably on You Tube) spoke of his shame for having forgotten the lyrics of the anthem of his country (that he so much loves).
As for me, what is more serious and even criminal, is in attempting to be fancy with the Philippine National Anthem despite specific provisions in the law specifying how it should be sang. The National Anthem should be fast (a brisk march). After all, it's a marching song.

Notice the way the Americans sing the last line? They stretch it sooo beautifully,
O'er the laaaaand of the freeeeeee, ....and the hooome of the braaaave!
Now, the Pinoy copycats have the nerve to copy it right before the Americans. Notice how they sing our last line..
"Ang mamatay naaaaaaang daaaaaaa hiiiiil saaaaaa yoooooo"
There's this one who failed miserably and even added, "Mabuhay Pacquiao!!"
