Christian Bautista shares his thanks for Kapit.


Dear @xtianfriendsph @indocf @universalrecordsph @stagestalents @gmanetwork Bryan Lotho , thank you making “Kapit “ a success. Thank you @awitawards for the nominations and for this award. I thought Kapit was going to be my last record. I’m glad that the song itself spoke to me. May it speak to you as well : not to give up. Thank you @katramnani For being one of the first to show support when you first heard the raw version . Love you. And Thank You Lord for not giving up on me.
