Singer, composer, recording artist and chess enthusiast Willy San Juan just posted a musical video on youtube about the 3rd Gathering of Knights and Kings, the Old Vanguard of Philippine Chess held last December 27 2009 in Quezon City. The song titled "Isulong mo" (Your Move), a song he composed and performed himself. GMs Eugene Torre, Joey Antonio, Darwin Laylo among other chess personalities were also featured in this musical video. Armed with an acoustic guitar, Willy San Juan serenades everyone on that night.
Your truly, who was also at the venue to cover the event is happy enough that we are "na ekstra" in the background (starting at 2:19 holding a DSLR), seen having a chit chat with Wesley So father, William.
For starters, you can view our previous post about the 3rd Gatherings of Knights and Kings HERE. And more photos HERE.
Yup, that's him in the center. The singer/composer. Video in the making. I took this photo sensing that he's up to something really interesting. And he really was!
