MANILA, Philippines — Morissette proved she is a true Filipino pride as she showcased her world-class talent at her first major solo concert at the Big Dome.

Fans applauded as the young diva gave it all out in every performance.

Asia’s Phoenix also delighted Wishers with her live performance of the songs that brought her to the international scene through her Wishclusives.

Morissette amazed not only her Filipino audience but also her foreign fans.

Some international YouTube reactors flew to the Philippines from the United States of America and Australia just to see the concert.

“It’s definitely worth the trip,” said Shaylem Te Paiho, a YouTube reactor. “It’s a completely different experience hearing her sing live and it’s like even better than what I could have imagined so I’m very happy to be here,” he added.

“Hearing her voice, just hearing it live kind of sucks you in. You just kind of get hypnotized,” said Gabe Bermudez, one of the YT reactors from Adobo Sandwich channel.

“You’re amazing. You’re putting the Philippines on the map. I mean she stuns so much during the Asia’s Song Festival and just really getting out there,” said Kayla Bermudez, also a reactor from Adobo Sandwich.

“I know that she’s becoming more well-known through the Wish bus and in America and just keep doing what she’s doing. She’s amazing,” added Kyla.

Apart from her supporters, Morissette thanked Wish 107.5, the producer of her concert.

She also promised to sing again on the Wish bus for her fans.

“To the whole Wish family and to the whole BMPI, maraming, maraming salamat po. Kuya Daniel, thank you so much po sa tiwala niyo. Unang-una syempre sa Wish talaga nagsimula iyon eh. Nagbukas po talaga iyong audience ko because of Wish and I was brought to the international scene because of Wish also so I’m very, very excited to be back on the Wish bus and to share again my talent doon.

“To the whole Wish family and to the whole BMPI, thank you very much. Kuya Daniel, thank you so much for your trust. First of all, Wish was the one that started it.

Bulacan, Philippines — The rising star of Bulacan Louie Anne Culala proved her amazing talent in singing during her hometown concert in San Ildefonso Gymnasium, Bulacan on February 12.

During her hometown concert, Louie Anne reminisced her Wishcovery journey through the songs that brought her to the grand finals.

“Sobrang napapataas po nito ‘yung self-confidence ko and mas lumalakas ‘yung feeling ko na may laban ako sa grand finals because of those people na sumusuporta po sa akin,” said the singing hopeful.

(It has really improved my self-confidence and belief that I have a chance in winning at the grand finals because of the people who support me.)

Louie Anne is known for her powerful and versatile vocals, but she vows to show more in the Wishcovery grand finals.

“Mas magpapakita po ako ng aking vocal abilities sa kanila so sana abangan nila ‘yung magiging performance ko,” said Louie Anne.

(I will show more of my vocal abilities so watch out for my performance.)

Aside from her supportive fellow Bulakenyos, the proudest of all for her achievement is her dad who taught her how to sing.

“Happy ako kasi kumbaga parang nakikita ko ‘yung pinagpaguran ko sa kanya buhat noong maliit siya hanggang ngayon. Alam mo naman 101%, nandito ako. ‘Yung support ko sa ‘yo, hindi mawawala ‘yan,” said Mr. Luisito Culala.

(You know that I am 101 percent here to support you. My support for you will remain.)

Aside from a mini-concert, Louie Anne also led the conduct of a medical mission for senior citizen in her home province.

(The entire town of San Ildefonso is thankful for her good deeds, and we wish her success as a famous singer.)

Meanwhile, Wish 107.5 granted some wishes to express its gratitude for having two million YouTube subscribers.
“Marami pong gastusin kaya hindipokayangisabay, naisipanko pong i-wish ‘yunggitara,” said beneficiary Ericka Shane Sombrio.

Maraming, maraming salamat po kasi ‘yung bagay po na hindi ko po ineexpect naibibigay sa akin, nangyari po,” she added.

(I have a lot of expenses that’s why I could not buy this. That’s why I thought of wishing for this guitar. Thank you so much for giving me this thing that I did not anticipate to have.)

“Medyo gipit nga kami. Hindi naming mabilhan ng TV. ‘Yung mother ko doon nakikinood sa kapitbahay. Wish, maraming Salamat talaga sa inyo. Di ko inaasahan na kayo pa iyong magiging dahilan para mabigay ko sa mother ko ‘yung wish na ‘yun.
(We have a very tight budget. We could not buy a TV. My mom would go to a neighbors’ house to watch television. Thank you so much, Wish 107.5. I did not expect that you will be instrumental in fulfilling my wish for my mother.) — Leslie Longboen | UNTV News and Rescue

Wishful Hacel Bartolome, more motivated to battle in the grand finals

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Wednesday, February 7th, 2018

MANILA, Philippines — Cavite is known to be the historical capital of the Philippines because it is the birthplace of Philippine independence.

Another history is being made in the province as Caviteña Hacel Bartolome continues her journey to be the first Wishcovery Grand Champion.

Caviteños gave a warm welcome to Wishful grand finalist Hacel in her hometown concert, Monday, in Bacoor Strike Gymnasium.

“Syempre, si Hacel may puso and then born to be a singer. Golden voice of Cavite!” said members of Acers, Hacel’s fans club.

(Of course, Hacel has a heart and is born to be a singer, golden voice of Cavite!)

“Lodi ng buong Cavite. Iyan kasi nga iyong boses niya talagang mapapa-ahh, mapapa-ganun ka talaga,” they added.

(She’s Cavite’s idol because her voice is unique.)

Hacel said the love she received from her kababayans gives her more reason to fight for the win in the grand finals.

“Sobrang saya po tsaka sobrang di ko talaga inasahan. Ang daming tao. Ang daming sumupport po,” said Hacel.

(I’m so happy and I really did not expect it. There are a lot of people and supporters. I think I need to win. I need to push. Apart from giving my best, I need to fight. We will fight in the grand finals.)

“Parang kailangan ko nang manalo. Kailangan ko nang ma-push. Kailangan ko nang talagang bukod sa ibigay iyong best ay kailangan ko na pong lumaban. Lalaban po tayo sa grand finals,” she added.

Some of Cavite’s homegrown artists and bands were also present in the event including Jireh Lim, Shantidope and Plethora.

Meanwhile, as part of Wish 107.5’s thanksgiving for its 2-million Youtube subscriber-milestone, the station also granted wishes of Caviteños.

These include Gervacio Titong’s wish for a wheelchair for her mother.

“Pagsulat ko doon, naiyak ako talaga. Sobra talagang aking ano kay Mama. Naawa ako,” said beneficiary Gervacio Titong.

“Pwede ko na siyang ilabas-labas, ipasyal-pasyal kasi itong malaking bagay sa kanya kasi mahirap din pong buhatin siya kasi mabigat. Pasalamat talaga ako sa [Wish] 107.5 na binigyan ako ng oportunidad … ng wheelchair po,” he said.

(When I wrote it, I was really crying. I really pity my mother. Now, I can bring her outside the house. This is a big help for her because she is also hard to carry because she is heavy. I really want to thank [Wish] 107.5 for giving me an opportunity to have a wheelchair.)

Wish FM also fulfilled Renan Perez’s aspiration to watch Morissette’s upcoming first major solo concert.

“Nagustuhan ko talaga iyong singing prowess niya. Isa siya sa naa-admire ako sa mga kumakanta lalo na siya, bago pa kaso siya eh. Nakikita ko na talaga na magaling talaga siya. Ang Wish ko po sa Wish 107.5, bale more power and good luck sa lahat ng mga projects nila,” said the wisher.

(I really admire her singing prowess. She’s one of the artists that I really admire especially that she is new in the industry. I can really see that she is great. My wish for Wish 107.5 is more power and good luck to all their projects.)

Meanwhile, watch out the Wishcovery team as it tours to Carmela Ariola’s hometown—Batangas – next. – Leslie Longboen | UNTV News & Rescue
