He is super rich. She is poor. He is one spoiled prince. While she is one simple lady. The guy is just chill. The girl is a born dreamer. He wants her fired. She badly needs her job. The only similarity they have is that, they both do not like to lose. It already looks bad for Joaquin and Chichay. If they only knew that their journey was just starting there.

Production Edit

Initially, Got To Believe was originally planned to be premiered back-to-back with Muling Buksan Ang Puso in July 8, 2013, but due to the request of Koreanovela fans, the series was postponed because of the Korean drama That Winter, The Wind Blows. After the delayed airing, the series aired on August 26, 2013, replacing Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala.

Music Edit

The theme song, "Got To Believe In Magic", was originally sang by American singer David Pomeranz as a soundtrack for the 1982 film Zapped!. It was later included in his compilation album, Born for You: His Best and More that was released in July 19, 1999. The album was recorded in the Philippines and co-produced by Pomeranz with Filipino composer Lorrie Ilustre. The song was a popular hit within the country during the time of the album's release. It was also used as a theme song for the 2002 Filipino film Got 2 Believe.[1]

Due to the song's previous usage in the romance film, director Cathy Garcia-Molina clarified that the television drama is completely different. The rendition featured within the show is sang by Filipina singer Juris.[2]

Got to Believe recently released an official soundtrack. It includes Got to Believe in Magic by Juris, My Only Love by Marion Aunor, Pagdating Ng Panahon by Kathryn Bernardo, Kasama Kang Tumanda by Daniel Padilla, Kahit Maputi Na Ang Buhok Ko by Daniel Padilla, and Got to Believe in Magic by Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo. Bonus tracks include Ikaw Na Na Na by G2B, two different versions of it. It suddenly and unexpectedly became a huge success of the film. The problem with the Ikaw Na Na Na is that plenty sources claim it is impossible to translate the lyrics. Anyway, both Ikaw Na Na Na and the there song - Got To Believe - have over million of viewers on YouTube and gained plenty fans.
