My Love Will Break

This is the original song composition of our youngest son, Gilbor Camporazo, Jr. before he went to Butuan Philippines Mission for 2 years.  He's 22 years old when his mission call arrived. He's the youngest child of our 6 children. He's a talented fellow. I taught him how to play the guitar, how to play the piano. He could easily learn and could play better than me.

When I was in my teenage years I used to join with the school glee club. I took the bass part of the male voice. I was a lover music. My favorite popular band during my time was The Beatles, Herman Hermits, The Cascades,

I was a self-taught musician. When I was in the elementary, I used to collect several copies of a song hits where I got the lyrics of my favorite songs of The Beatles and sang along to the music played on the radio.

At home, I have an acoustic guitar. When I got home after my job, while I was resting for several hours I took the guitar and played my favorite song while singing. My son was my audience. When we became member of The Church, he got a chance to join with the members' band. He played the lead guitar.
