Wish 107.5 has been hailed as the best FM station during the GEMS Awards 2019 on Thursday.
It is no surprise why Wish FM, spearheaded by Kuya Daniel Razon, already won numerous awards despite being in its early years.
During the third GEMS Hiyas ng Sining Awards 2019, held at the Center for Performing Arts in Muntinlupa city, Wish FM was recognized as the best FM station in the country.
“Kumpara sa iba na dekada na ang binilang, ngunit nanggulat sila sa mga tagapakinig sa paraan at istilo nilang kaibig-ibig. Nasapul agad nila ang pulso ng masa, di lang ng mga sosyal at may pihikang panlasa, kahit saan mang dako, istasyon nila ay bukam-bibig sa musika at tinig nilang nakakakilig. Para sa ating Best Radio Station FM, Wish FM 107.5, (Compared to [other stations] that are already decades old, this station had a unique style that captured the hearts of everyone, not just the elite. Everywhere, their station shines when it comes to music. For our Best Radio Station FM, Wish FM 107.5)” the GEMS Award commentator said.
Since it hit the airwaves in 2014, it already struck the hearts of music lovers. Wish 107.5 changed the stage in performing hit songs after the first and only mobile radio booth in the country, the Wish Bus, was launched.
Local artists across the country were also given the opportunity to show off their talents, not only in the Philippines but also abroad.
Whether you’re already a veteran in the music industry or just starting, Wish 107.5 provides equal opportunity to share your music.
Wish’s YouTube channel has also become an online favorite because of its sound and video quality. Many featured artists already gained millions of views.
The Wish 107.5 representatives, DJ Faye and DJ Adam, are grateful for the support of the listeners and vows to continue providing a unique experience when it comes to listening to music.
“Maraming, maraming salamat sa GEMS awards and sa De La Salle Zobel para sa parangal na ito. Nakakataba ng puso kasi ang mga taong katulad ninyo ang inspirasyon namin sa ginagawa namin, (Thank you Gems awards and De La Salle Zobel for this award. It fills my heart because you are our inspiration)” DJ Faye said.
“Maraming salamat sa GEMS (Thank you GEMs) and also major prompts to all the people behind the scenes from the sound tech guys. Iyong mga video editors, (The video editors) and all that. Like, lahat tayo, talagang collective effort (All of your, this is a collective effort) to attain the success and recognition. To GOD be the glory,” DJ Adam said.—Aileen Cerrudo (with reports from Asher Cadapan Jr.)
Nanay Teresita showed off her favorite dance moves on the newly renovated floor of their home in San Jose del Monte, Bulacan.
It was well-polished and better compared to their old floor.
Nanay Teresita, along with nine others, lives in one of the elderly homes of the Coalition of Services of the Elderly (COSE). COSE is one of the beneficiaries of top radio station Wish FM that received P100,000 cash grant.
Because of the cash grant, COSE was able to further provide a comfortable home for these lolas.
“Nagpapasalamat ako sa Dios na mayroong may mga mabuting puso na nagdo-donate dito, (I am thankful to God for the kindhearted people who donated this)” Lola Conchita Salas said.
COSE is a non-governmental organization that aims to keep older people involved in the community.—AAC (with reports from Ninya Armillo)
A new breed of OPM singer-songwriters is about to hit the digital space.
On September 29, Wish 107.5 is set to premiere “Wishcovery Originals” on its YouTube channel. Serving as the third edition of the radio station’s online talent search, the show aims to discover and give a platform to aspiring Filipino artists who can both perform and compose their own songs.
“What we’re looking for right now is a singer and composer. We want, this time, the composer to express his feelings through songs that he himself wrote,” Kuya Daniel Razon, the creator of the competition and the main man behind Wish 107.5, remarked in a previous statement.
The first two seasons of the show focused on the singing prowess of the contenders.
Series of Eliminations
Touting a brand-new concept for Wishcovery, Wish 107.5 is on a mission to scout, introduce, and hone promising music makers in the country. It opened its auditions last June and has since received hundreds of entries from singing-songwriting acts online and via the Wish 107.5 Bus.
Out of these hopefuls, only a select few will have the chance to showcase their talent and songs on the competition proper.
After the program’s pilot episode — which is dedicated to giving the audience a walkthrough of what to expect throughout the show’s run — a series of weekly and monthly eliminations will take place.
Every Sunday, four contenders will battle it out on the weekly eliminations, the winners of which will advance to the monthly finals. Featuring a brand-new song for this stage, the top contender will earn a spot in the grand finals and a cash prize worth Php 20,000.
For the weekly battles, the scores will solely come from the panel of judges, which includes Mayonnaise frontman Monty Macalino, the country’s King of R&B Jay R, and veteran hitmaker-producer Jungee Marcelo.
For the monthly eliminations, the judges will only take up 75 percent of the total scores. The remaining 25 percent will come from the power-viewing statistics of the contenders’ Wish Bus performances to be uploaded on a dedicated platform for these videos, the Wishcovery YouTube channel.
Despite this fierce competition, exciting rewards await the grand winner of the show.
As in the previous editions of Wishcovery, Wish 107.5 will give a whopping set of prizes for the show’s grand champion — Php 1 million in cash, a recording contract worth Php 1 million, a brand-new car, and a house and lot.
Follow the journey of aspiring Filipino singer-songwriters and hear new OPM songs on Wishcovery Originals! The show, which will air every Sunday on Wish 107.5’s YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/wish1075official), will premiere on September 29. Meanwhile, full videos of the contenders’ Wish Bus performances will be available on the Wishcovery YouTube channel (https://bit.ly/2kJ4Oyn).
