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.)

Three weeks has passed since Rhea Basco became the grand champion of Wishcovery Season 2: The singer and the song, the first and biggest online singing competition in the country.
But until now, the dentistry student from Taguig City still cannot believe the blessings she has been receiving.
“Nandito pa rin po iyong feeling ko na parang regular person pa rin. Mayroong ibang nakakakilala sa akin, or tumitingin so nakakagulat din po, (I still feel like a regular person, but I already get recognized by other people, it is surprising),” Rhea said.
On Friday, Wish 107.5 and Wishcovery innovator Kuya Daniel Razon gave Rhea the key to her brand new car as part of her grand prize for winning the competition. She has also won a house and lot, P1 million cash and a career in the music industry.
Rhea will also perform as a front act in the concert of KZ Tandingan in Dubai on March 22. She said she is already preparing for her very first performance abroad.
“50 percent (preparation) magpa-practice po ako para hindi naman sila madismaya kapag nag-perform na po ako, gagalingan ko. Excited po ko pero kinakabahan kasi KZ iyon, super galing niya, (50% preparation, I am practicing so that the audience will not be disappointed when I perform. I am excited and nervous because she is KZ, she is an excellent performer),” according to her.
“Super happy din po kasi pinagkatiwalaan ako ng Wish mag-front act sa concert ni KZ sa Dubai and sa Davao, so sobrang happy po, ( I’m super happy because Wish has trusted me to do the front act at KZ’s concert in Dubai and in Davao)“ she adds.
There is a lot in store for her after she concludes her performance in Dubai.
Kuya Daniel Razon told Wishers to stay tuned for the concert and album launch of Rhea along with her fellow grand finalists in Wishcovery Season 2.
“So ito ang immediate na kasunod nito, ang launch ng kanilang album and we’re looking forward na makapag-collaborate din sila sa kanilang mga mentors, ang kanilang mga composers, isang performance that they will be doing sa malaking venue, (The launch of their album will follow. We’re also looking forward to their collaboration with their mentors and composers, in a performance that they will be doing in a bigger venue],” he said.
Meanwhile, singing hopefuls should prepare for the upcoming Wishcovery Season 3.
“We will be announcing soon the mechanics for the season 3 ng Wishcovery, so abangan na lang po nila and hopefully makapag-bigay ng panibagong chance doon sa mga ibig na pumasok sa larangan ng musika. (We will be announcing soon the mechanics for the Wishcovery season 3, so watch out for that and hopefully it can provide another chance for those who want to be in the music industry). Watch out for the opening and we will be announcing the mechanics soon,” Daniel Razon added.
So Wishers, keep on wishing and you might be the next Wishcovery grand champion—Aileen Cerrudo (with reports from Mirasol Abogadil)
