Jose Mari Chan is also on TikTok, guys

On the first day of September, Jose Mari Chan is already everywhere — even on TikTok. The singer shared the good news during Shopee's 9.9 Super Shopping Day media event Tuesday, where Chan came back as the online shopping platform's ambassador.

The Father of Philippine Christmas Music said TikTok is where he'll share some behind-the-scenes and a few videos, where users can sing Christmas carols with him.

"I have many surprises for everyone starting today. For example I will have my own TikTok account where you can follow me, watch out for my BTS posts and sing along with me on TikTok," he said.

His song "Christmas In Our Hearts" has become a staple during Philippine Christmas, with malls, restaurants, the radio — everywhere — playing it non-stop as soon as September begins. The good-natured joke is that Jose Mari Chan signals the start of the Christmas season in the country. 

Yesterday in fact, "Jose Mari Chan" trended on Twitter after Filipino netizens tweeted many a meme featuring the singer-songwriter.

In a previous interview, Jose Mari Chan said memes make him feel young.

“I’m flattered, I’m complimented, and I feel rewarded that after 30 years, the song that I wrote ‘Christmas In Our Hearts’ is still loved and sung by people year after year,” he told "24 Oras."

On Tuesday morning, the singer songwriter guested on Unang Hirit, where not only he sang with his children and grandchildren, but where he actually rewrote his spectacular Christmas hit in light of COVID-19

In the Philippines, Filipinos begin preparing for Christmas as soon as the -Ber months start rolling in.

According to Professor Jimuel Naval, a cultural analyst and historian, “siguro sa buong mundo tayo yung pinakamahabang selebrasyon ng Pasko.”
