Wishcovery Season 2 The Singer and the Song album gets gold and platinum awards after their album launch on Tuesday (June 5).
The eight Wishcoverees finalists also showed off their talent at the Araneta Coliseum Tuesday night during the The Singer and the Song concert.
Wishcoverer-composer Jungee Marcelo was elated with the performance of the Wishcoverees.
“Finally, you see the fledgling little kid that you trained and then she did everything that you asked her to do and more and seeing her finally perform the song even better,” he said.
Composer Noel Cabangon also expressed his excitement for their musical wards. “I’m really proud of our Wishcoverees because they’re very good and now they have a portfolio, one of the things that they can show,” he said.
Following the album-launching concert, Wishcoveree grand finalists, Rhea Basco and Paula Guevarra shared their overwhelming experience.
“Hindi ko maiwasang maluha kasi habang kinakanta ko ang song ko na parang, ‘andito na kami,’ (I couldn’t help but tear up while I was singing my song I thought to myself, ‘we’re here’)” Rhea said.
Paula hopes that their songs will boost the public’s patronage of Filipino music.
“Sana po iyong album namin ma-inspire lahat ng mga Pilipino na i-patronize pa din ang OPM, (I hope our album inspires Filipinos and patronize OPM)” she said.—(with reports from Asher Cadapan Jr.)

Before trying to take down Spiderman as the Green Goblin, Hollywood actor Willem Dafoe was at the EDSA People Power Revolution in 1986.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, the actor recalled how he marched with thousands of Filipino people who wanted then President Ferdinand Marcos to step down from his office.
Dafoe flew to Manila to work on the film Platoon, for which he was nominated best supporting actor.
“I arrived in the Philippines and my plane was the last plane in because there was a revolution. ‘Sit tight, the movie’s canceled, we’ll get you out when we can.’ So for about three or four days, me and a couple of other people that were there ahead of time were out on the streets with the people.
After the revolution, the movie resumed production and Dafoe, along with the other casts and film crew, returned to the country to shoot the movie.
“It was an incredible feeling because it was a revolution that happened for the most part without violence,” he said.—AAC
