A virtual tribute to mothers


JP Pereira

On the occasion of the birthday of Mother Mary also celebrated as Mother’s Day, ‘MOM’ (Memories Of Mother) a song dedicated to all mothers was released by the parish youth of St Alex Church, Curtorim under the leadership of Fr Blaise Lobo. The song is in praise of mothers who sacrifice so much for the children, said Fr Blaise, who conceptualised the song. “Because of the current situation, we cannot come together to celebrate and felicitate the goodness and greatness of our mothers. Therefore, the parish youth of St Alex Church, Curtorim have released ‘MOM’ (Memories of Mother) to present a virtual tribute to their mothers on the occasion of the feast of Mother Mary. A mother’s love lasts forever, be it in her arms, from a distance, or from heaven above. Therefore, this is just a humble effort from the youngsters to express their love towards their mothers.”

The lyrics of the song was composed by Earlluizi Fernandes, and has been rendered in the video by Swizel Vaz, Andrea Almeida, Daphne Menezes, Tania Cardozo Raeisa Da cunha, Swena Vaz, Valencia Marques, Sheena Fernandes, Estida Pires, Delria Rodrigues, Monalisa Rodrigues, Rhea Marques, Cedric Estibeiro, Asher Antao, Joel Fernandes, Earlluizi Fernandes, Twinkle D’souza, Denzilia Menezes, Aaron Dias, Adriel Antao, Hazel Da Costa, Lezio Rebelo, Shannon Sequeira, Anzia Fernandes, and Alric Antao, and set to music by Adriel Antao. The video filming was done by Vishal Mascarenhas on a set created by Mouvin Noronha, while the audio mixing has been done by Cedric Estibeiro.

The youth convey special thanks to parish priest, Fr Joseph Salema. A different type of tribute; the visuals are well edited and presented. Along with the singers are photos of their mothers. The song itself is a treat to watch and listen to.
