Heeding the advice of ASOP (A Song of Praise) judges, composer Reymil Anania successfully bagged the Song of the Month title with his entry “Wala Kang Katulad” (There’s No One Like You), qualifying him for the A Song of Praise Music Festival Grand Finals Year 6.
Anania’s masterpiece shined brightest against Rolando Dela Cruz’ “Heto Na Naman Ako” (Here I am Again) and Keizy Lavilla’s “Simula Ngayon” (From Now On).
ASOP judge Jungee Marcelo could not find any deficiencies in the latest version of Anania’s piece.
“Tingnan natin kung nandun yung deficiency… wala na! Tinanggal na niya!” he said. (Let’s check if the deficiency is still there…it’s gone! He has already removed it.)
Another panel judge, Isabel Granada said, “Thank you very much sa ating (to our) composer na si Reymil for correcting some of the words, magmula dun sa first verse at saka dun sa third verse (from the first verse to the third). Thank you for listening to us.”
While panel judge Kedy Sanchez commented, “Very contemporary siya ano? And which I feel is the appeal of this song… napaka-contemporary ng tunog, ng lengguwahe… pero ang sinasabi niya, it is still a praise song.” (This song is very contemporary isn’t it? And which I feel is the appeal of this song… the sound is very contemporary, the language. But it is still a praise song.)
According to Anania, the judges’ comments and suggestions are important to him because it came from veterans in the music industry.
He said, “Kasi batikan din, eh. Sina Sir Jungee tsaka yung isa pang ano… batikan sila. Tapos nag-comment sila kung pano mapapa… e maikli lang yung panahon. Siguro po mare-revise pa namin para sa grand finals po yung kanta.”
(They are veterans, Sir Jungee and others. They commented on how to [improve the song]. Maybe we can still re-revise the song for the Grand Finals.)
RJ Buena, who interpreted Reymil’s composition, is hoping to perform it again at the Grand Finals.
“Sobrang happy ako at talagang naisip ko if ever man na ako pa rin yung mag-i-interpret, ang sarap lang ng pakiramdam. At sabi ko nga nung last week na naniniwala ako sa song niya na kahit mismo siya nagda-doubt. Eh, ako syempre yung kumakanta na nararamdaman ko yung mga letra. So somehow, hopeful ako. Nakikita kong maganda yung laban niya,” he said.
(I’m happy, and I really think that if ever I get chosen again to interpret in the finals, it would be great. As I’ve said last week, I believe in his song even if Reymil has doubts about it. I am the one singing and feeling the words. So somehow, I am hopeful. I see that Reymil’s song “Wala Kang Katulad” will have a good chance of winning.)
ASOP Year 6 Grand finals will be held in November. — Mon Jocson | UNTV News & Rescue

MANILA — Hailed as Song of the Month (April) is the composition of an Original Pilipino Music (OPM) artist and A Song of Praise Year 5 interpreter Carlo David.
David’s masterpiece, “Dahil Sa Iyo” , (Because of You) edged the songs “Dahil Mayrong Ikaw” (Because There Was You) of Mart Ilagan from Lucena City and “Pag-ibig Mo Na Walang Hanggan” (Your Everlasting Love) of Nataniel Cabañero from Ireland.
According to Carlo, “Dahil Sa Iyo” is based on his own life story.
“I went to the stage na kinukuwestyon ko. Marami akong doubts. Tapos nung nalinawan ako, Siya pala yung dahilan ng lahat. Ba’t pa ko nagtatanong? Ba’t pa ko nagda-doubt?” he said.
(I went to the stage with questions and doubts. Then I was enlightened. I realized that God is the reason for everything. So why should I continue to question and doubt?)
The winning composer added that he was too nervous because the songs in the monthly finals were all good.
“From the start, naman hindi ako nage-expect pero lalo na when I heard the second and the third songs. Sabi ko, sobrang ganda ng kanta… tapos yung birit pa sa huli. Talagang nalalaglag talaga ako sa upuan. Pero ayun, I guess may purpose ito. Itong pagkapanalo na ‘to. Sana may maabot yung kanta. Maraming taong ma-inspire…”
(From the start, I really didn’t expect to win, moreso when I heard the second and the third songs. I told myself, those songs are so beautiful… then there was vocal belting in the last part. I was on the edge of my seat. But I guess this has a purpose, my winning the Song of the Month ( grand finalist). I hope this song will reach far and inspire many people.)
Meanwhile, according to the winning song interpreter, Kevin Yadao, Carlo David’s meticulousness enabled him to give justice to the song and deliver a moving performance.
“Well, unang-una may pressure, pero mas maganda kasi mas hands on na siya (Well, first of all, there is pressure. But that’s good because he is hands on) ,” said Yadao.
According to the ASOP judges, the winning song, “Dahil Sa Iyo” was really deserving.
Panel judge, Jackie Lou Blanco said, “This is the first time na ganitong tempo yung narinig ko. It’s very now, it’s very chill.”
(This the first time I’m hearing this kind of tempo. It’s very now, it’s very chill.)
Her co-judge Moi Ortiz of The Company said, “Intro pa lang, sabi ko, ‘ Iba ‘to kasi yung chord changes iba eh'(From the intro alone, I said to myself, ‘This song is different; the chord changes are different).”
Resident judge, Doc Mon del Rosario commended, “I did see na maganda din ang pagkakaposition ng title line, ‘Dahil sa Iyo.’ Inilagay siya sa very strong position ng chorus, first at last line.”
(I did see also that the positioning of the title line “Dahil Sa Iyo” was placed at a very strong position of the chorus’ first and last lines.)
A Song of Praise Music Festival can be watched every Sunday at 7 PM.
