Last January 15, 2017 (Monday), Kuya Daniel Razon introduced to the crowd the new Wish Bus which will station at Hollywood, USA
MANILA, Philippines – Wish 107.5 stays true to its commitment to be Filipino talent’s gateway to the world.
Through Wish FM’s innovations, foreigners were wowed by the singing prowess of OPM artists.
Wishclusive videos taken on the Pambansang Wish Bus continue to gain worldwide attention through the Wish Youtube channel.
It now has almost 2 million subscribers and over 800 million views.
And now, aiming to further promote Filipino talent, Wish FM is set to bring the Wishclusive performances abroad through the popular Wish Bus.
“At this point, I would just like to let you know that in these coming months, we are already preparing for another big leap and we have that already. We have traveled our Wish Bus from New York to Los Angeles. Now it’s already in Hollywood and waiting for the inauguration,” said Wish creator, Kuya Daniel Razon.
“After this Hollywood thing, we’re looking forward to having also our Wish Bus in Europe,” he added.
OPM artists were amazed at the concept of a traveling Wish bus.
“If halimbawa, magkaroon ng Wish Bus sa ibang bansa and then magf-fly sila ng mga OPM artists doon tapos iikot sa iba’t ibang bansa, magandang idea iyon. Kasi sobrang unique eh kahit iyong mga foreigner’s pag narinig nila yung… ‘What? Studio in a bus?’ Parang sobrang nacucurious sila tapos hindi pa puchu-puchu iyong quality. Kung gaano kaganda iyong quality sa regular na studio, kung hindi pa mas maganda parang pwede mo na silang i-compare. So nakakaproud na meron tayong nap-produce na ganun kaya sana matuloy yun,” said popular “soul supreme” singer, KZ Tandingan.
(If for example, there will be a Wish bus in other countries and they will fly OPM artists there and tour different countries. That’s a good idea because it’s so unique. Even foreigners, whenever they hear… ‘What? Studio in a bus?’ they seem so curious and the quality is very good.)
“Ang dami pong Filipino artists abroad that are just so great. Sa states pa lang po sobrang naguumapaw na din lahat ng talents ng Filipinos there and so to have Wish Bus go there so that they could help promote the OFWs or the Filipinos that are residing in different countries. It’s such a great opportunity and a great avenue once again that Wish has created,” said rising singer/song writer, Moira dela Torre.

“For us to be able to bring Wish to other countries and to reach our kababayans there and more, sobrang laking ano nun (it’s such a big deal). It’s an honor of course to be a part of this family and it’s so big for Wish. I’m only very excited, I’m looking forward for what else is in store for everybody kaya go. Congratulations po Kuya Daniel,” said stage actress and recording star Morissette Amon.
