Mayonnaise Reboots ‘Dear Classmate’ to Deliver an Inspiring Message to the Younger Generation

Every child dreams of being somebody when they grow up, but for many, the journey to success starts with overcoming the challenges of academic life. This is the powerful message behind the new rendition of “Dear Classmate,” the iconic song by alternative rock band Mayonnaise produced in collaboration with World Vision.

Together with the child-focused humanitarian organization World Vision, the OPM rock quintet, known for their timeless hit “Jopay,” has rewritten and tweaked a few lines of their original 2014 song to deliver a meaningful message that resonates with the audience of today and generations to come, inspiring kids to embrace and value education, and encouraging them to pursue their dreams and reach their full potential.

The song reboot is a testament to Mayonnaise’s commitment to promoting positive values and making a difference in the lives of young people through music and their collaboration with World Vision. 

“We wanted to do this small thing for World Vision because, just like us, they’re striving to make a difference in children’s lives. While ours has been through music, World Vision does it through its many programs. In the same way that we started out as young, hopeful underdogs, we encourage the youth to study hard, prioritize their future, and stay focused on their dreams. Big things will happen for sure!” says Mayonnaise frontman and prolific composer Monty Macalino.
