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.)

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

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

Its Wishclusive videos have also been the craze of netizens, with reactors across the globe.

And, Wish also takes pride of launching the biggest online singing competition in the Philippines, Wishcovery.

Wish 107.5 makes various innovations in music industry

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Friday, January 12th, 2018

MANILA, Philippines – It has just been 3 years since Wish 107.5 started its operations yet it has become a favorite of many music fans

Because of its innovations and one-of-a-kind concepts, it has received numerous awards and gained attention here and abroad.

Among these is the very popular Wish bus which was introduced during the station launch.

The Wish Bus, the first and only FM booth on wheels, is the brainchild of veteran broadcaster and humanitarian, Kuya Daniel Razon.

It is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities used to produce your favorite Wishclusive videos. Because of its uniqueness, this roving music hub has never failed to catch the attention of commuters.

“Wish 107.5 Bus was actually conceptualized because we have noticed that here in the metropolis, traffic is really terrible. So one of the things that we would like to introduce is something that would assuage the feeling of boredom and also the feeling of going crazy in the traffic jam,” Razon said.

The bus regularly visits different parts of the country to provide free mini-concerts of promising Filipino and international artists —and soon we’ll be able to see it roaming abroad.

“Gusto namin nga po talaga, mas marami yung Wish bus namin. So naumpisahan na natin na naicustomize na natin yung sa Hollywood. So what we wanted to do is ma-i-showcase po ang ating Filipino artists all over the globe,” Razon added.

(We really wanted to replicate our Wish bus so we have started to customize one in Hollywood. So what we wanted to do is to showcase our Filipino artists all over the globe.)

Among the popular programs of the station is Wishcovery which showcases the talent of aspiring singers in the country.

It is the biggest online singing competition in the country today.

Apart from these innovations, Wish 107.5 is considered unique for being an FM station with a heart.

“What we wanted to do is to help yung mga nandoon sa (those in the) music industry. And by opening up our station, we wanted to incorporate kasi (because of) the element of helping other people. The reason why we named it Wish is because we wanted to grant wishes,” Razon said.

Every small wish fulfilled brings smiles to the beneficiary.

“Nagpapasalamat po ako sa wish kasi tinupad po nila iyong wish ko (I thank Wish for granting my wish),” wisher from Bulacan Sheila Laudera said.

 

“Masarap sa pakiramdam kasi merong isang radio station na nag-grant ng wish. I hope sana marami din kayong ma-grant na Wish (It feels good that there is a radio station that grants wishes. I hope you grant more wishes),” Quezon City Wisher Regine Ann Abaigar said.

Also among the one-of-a-kind concepts of Wish FM is the Wish Music Awards which aside from being a night of honoring promising artists is a charitable event. – Leslie Longboen | UNTV News & Rescue
