The Baylor University Men's Choir flying on Emirates Airlines gave an impromptu performance of "Da Coconut Nut" composed by Filipino musician Ryan Cayabyab on their flight home from Kenya.

Singing and dancing, the 75-member of the Baylor University Men's Choir performed Ryan Cayabyab's song "Da Coconut Nut" to the delight of the passengers and crew.

"Da Coconut Nut" was popularized by Ryan Cayabyab's group Smokey Mountain back in the 1990's. The choral arrangement of the song has become popular and performed by choirs around the world. The video posted by Emirates on Facebook has been viewed over 2.5 million times.



It's a really great performance and I checked out their actual performance of "Da Coconut Nut" on Youtube. It's not very clear but it's great nonetheless.

Tacloban's REO Brothers at the ABS-CBN Christmas Special 2013

The REO Brothers from Tacloban sings a medley of Beatles greatest hits at the ABS-CBN Christmas Special. They sound almost like The Beatles!


The REO brothers are survivors of Typhoon Yolanda, they relocated to Metro Manila after the typhoon. They traveled to Manila in a Philtranco bus for two days surviving on candies and biscuits. They left Tacloban penniless and only the clothes they have were the ones they were wearing. The only thing they were able to save during the storm was their all important guitars!

Here's the full background story about the REO Brothers.
