Song: Bawat Hakbang

Karl will soon be the former member of the group called the Akafellas.  He’s been there since 2001 but the group is transitioning to have new members.  He has plans of moving to Singapore to take his MBA later this year.  Karl is a brilliant finance consultant. He labels his work on corporate finance “geeky”. He’s pretty new to songwriting contests; this is only his 2nd attempt.  He’s written a couple of songs, including some originals for the Akafellas.  He says his song “Bawat Hakbang” carries deep personal meaning, which saw him through when he went through some personal crisis.
