Pacman to release new single on April 28

Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, a congressman in the Philippines, is set to release his new single on April 28 worldwide. The single titled “Sometimes when we touch” is a hit music in the 1970s, sung by renowned singer and songwriter Dan Hill. Several artists have covered the song including Tina Turner, Tammy Wynette, Rod Stewart, Barry Manilow and Engelbert Humperdinck.

The new single will be a duet with Dan Hill, but the main cover of the CD will be Manny Pacquiao with a subtitle of “featuring Dan Hill”. Hill discovered Pacquiao in November 2009 when Pacquiao visited Jimmy Kimmel Show to promote the Pacquiao vs Cotto fight. Pacman sang the song and it made the popular songwriter contact his members. He then asked them to contact Pacquiao to discuss about singing together the song and making a worldwide album for him. Hill’s comment on Manny is that he is “sincere” and “honest” while he sang it.

This week Pacquiao and Hill will pay a visit to the Jimmy Kemmel Show together. Manny and Dan are expected to sing the song in the show but may surprise to sing another song. Manny hopes his new single will be a hit not only to the Filipino but to the world.

One of the notable visits of Pacman on the Jimmy Kimmel Show was with comedian Will Ferrell when they sang together John Lennon’s song - Imagine - 5 months ago. The rendition video at now has 1,297,091 views as of this writing.

Before the Pacquiao vs Mosley fight, Manny will release the single CD/DVD hoping that it will be a hit before he hits Shane Mosley on May 7.

Win or lose, there will be an after-fight concert and party with Manny Pacquiao’s band and it’s pretty sure the band will sing the song “Sometimes when we touch” and they may even invite Dan Hill as special guest.
