by UNTV News   |   Posted on Wednesday, January 11th, 2017

All is set for the Wish 107.5 Music Awards this coming Monday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The event will witness not only the announcement of this year’s winners but also performances of top Original Pilipino Music (OPM) stars.

The artist who will grace the awards night will include Morisette, KZ Tandingan, Zia Quizon, Charice, Sassa Dagdag, Kris Lawrence, Michael Pangilinan, Jason Dy and Marcelino Pomoy.

A total of 75 music acts are vying under 13 categories, special recognition will also be handed out including the ‘Wish Reactors Choice Award’ and ‘Wishclusive Viral Video of the Year’.

Awards will also be given to members of the Wishclusive Elite Circle.

This group will be composed of artists with Wish 107.5 YouTube videos that have at least 10 million views.

Online voting will comprise 50% of a nominee’s total score, while the other 50% will come from the votes of a select panel of judges.

Some of the nominees are grateful for being able to perform on the one and only Wish 107.5 Bus.

“It was only a dream for me. I wish that before 2016 ends I’ll get to perform and God granted my wish. So, before the year ends I was able to guest in the show,” said Wish Awards nominee Garie Concepcion.

“I’ve been a part of it. A few of my videos, I think, reached 1 million views at least. For someone like me who’s not so popular, it’s a big achievement for me,” said Sam Mangubat, another Wish Awards nominee.

Also one of the much-awaited part of the event is the granting of 1 million pesos to the chosen charitable institutions of the winners.

The wish-granting is one of the main highlights of the Wish Music Awards.

Those who will receive major awards will be given 100,000 pesos for their chosen charitable institution. This is apart from the cash prizes worth P25,000 each that winning artists will receive.

“I’m surprised that there’s something like that happening. You barely see that and it’s barely anything. I’m happy to be a part of a company that does that like even the show, the people are giving away tickets and all that. It’s not about the show but what is happening in the show and at the end of the day what is happening is we’re celebrating the singers and we’re celebrating that not by gaining anything but giving it away,” said Wish FM disc jockey, Robin Nievera.

Wish 107.5 continues to grant P2-M worth of wishes

by UNTV   |   Posted on Monday, February 5th, 2018

 

The Wishing Wall in Wish 107.5’s 2Mx2 thanksgiving bash held at the Centris Open Grounds

MANILA, Philippines — Wish 107.5’s 2Mx2 thanksgiving bash at the Centris Open Grounds last Friday is a wish come true for Wishers.

Aside from the enjoyment from the free musical entertainment offered by OPM artists and bands, the station also brings inspiration in the start of the granting of P2 million pesos worth of wishes for being thankful for their two million YouTube subscribers.

Just like Sharmaine Villamater from Mandaluyong whose 84-year-old father-in-law was given a wheelchair after not being able to walk for five years.

“Para sa father-in-law ko, malaking tulong na iyon sa kaniya. Kasi iyong makakalabas pa lang siya ng bahay na makita mong nag-e-enjoy, masaya na siya doon. Doon pa lang parang 100% na nakakatuwa makita mo siyang happy,” said Villamater.

(For my father-in-law, it is already a big help for him. The fact that he can leave the house, you can already see he is enjoying. Seeing him happy is a hundred percent joyful scene to witness.)

The catering package wished by Mary Joy Galias for street children and Jericho Jerom Altares for the patients he is caring for in the National Center for Mental Health will make a lot of people happy.

“Maraming batang nakakaawa na hindi kumakain,” said Galias.

(Many pitiful children are starving.)

“Malaking tulong iyong binigay ng Wish kasi last December hindi namin siya nagawa dahil family problem, sa pinansyal din. Kaya parang mabigat iyong kalooban ko kasi wala, walang nagawa. Ngayon, okay na ako kasi wish-granted talaga,” she added.

(What Wish has given is a huge help. Last December, we were not able to do it because of family problems, financial as well. So, I feel kind of heavy because nothing had been done. Now, I’m okay because it’s wish granted.)

“Kapag may mga relative pa iyong pasyente, may dalang spaghetti, may dalang masarap na pagkain, pero iyong ibang mga wala nang relatives, talagang ulila na, minsan naiinggit sila,” said Altares.

(If the patient still has a relative, [they bring] spaghetti. They bring delicious food, but those without relatives, those who are alone sometimes, they are envious.)

“Gulat na gulat ako and then tuwang-tuwa. And then thankful kay God kasi because na-grant iyong wish ko so sobrang saya, makakatulong kami. Makakatulong ako personally,” he said.

(I was surprised then happy and then thankful to God. My wish was granted, we are very happy because we helped. I can personally help.)

Because of this, wishers are very thankful to the FM station with a heart.

“Patuloy pong mag-inspire ng ibang tao through ganitong wish po kasi nakakapagbago po siya ng pagtingin sa isang istasyon na may tinutulungan po,” said a wisher.

(Continue to inspire other people through wish, it changes the perspective of a station that is helping someone.)

Last Friday, 22 wishes were granted by the station. The wish-granting will continue for two months.

Meanwhile, OPM artists send their greetings for the two million YouTube subscriber-milestone of the station

“Wish, congratulations to you. You guys deserve everything — all the success that you guys have been getting. You totally deserve it,” said RNB royalty Kris Lawrence.

“I’m just so happy that Wish FM has already two million subscribers and I’m really, really proud!” said Child wonder Xia Vigor.

“Thank you and congratulations so much. More power to you, guys,” said Spongecola guitarist Erwin Armovit.

“And I can’t wait for the three million point. Maybe sometime in a few months,” said the band’s drummer Tmac Cruz.

“Few months because of the parabolic increase in subscribers. Good job!” said Yael Yuzon.

It was on January 23 when the No.1 FM YouTube channel in the country, Wish 107.5, hit its two-million YouTube subscription milestone.

It also currently has more than 850 million views just under three and a half years since the channel was launched.

Morissette is also excited to share with her fans her talent in this new milestone.

“There are songs na iyong mga kinanta ko sa Wish Bus na kakantahin ko ngayon live and in a big stage. But there are also mga surprises and of course, iyong mga guests na sobrang sobrang excited ako pero di ko pa pwedeng ma-reveal pero it’s really something to look forward to,” said Morissette.
