“Music can prevent war and anger and we can go from point A to point b in life because of music. We all love music because we can relate to it”

OPM Music is not dead, that is the sign that Wish 107.5 is trying to convey with the 3rd Wish Music Awards that was launch at Luxent Hotel last Dec 15,2017. Music lover, judges and performers were present to answers question that media are curious about.


So, what are the judges looking for personally to make the performer stand out

Sabi nga nila, if there’s anything that they are looking for, there’s the part in technical but there’s also a part that they want to feel, naapektuhan ba sila

Did the performance hit them emotionally and which is something they learn as a musician and media person. At the end of the day what they learn sa media at pagtugtug, if they think much of that, they would forget what it means to be a fan, and that is the most important fact to consider of a judge

A performer can be technically perfect but its how you they can see how the performer, feels the song and owns it. One more thing is how affected the judges can be with how they deliver the song.

Judges don’t confer with one another and don’t discuss with one another and the result is pure and base on each judge decision.
It’s not every day that I got question a judge of an upcoming music awards. It was quite interesting to hear these facts.

The Wish Music Awards will be held on January 15, 2018 at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum.

And so, who are the finalist this year

Now celebrating its third year, the Wish Music Awards aims to gather and recognize the year’s best and well-loved Filipino musicians and artists.

Next year, Wish Music Awards will pay tribute to local composers, bands, singers and artists who collectively contributed to the massive appreciation and support gained by Original Pilipino Music (OPM) from the public lately
Having noticed the recent resurgence of OPM, Wish finds it fitting to put the spotlight to the men and women who helped rekindle Filipinos’ love for their very own — OPM.

Thus, the 2018 WMA will give thanks to the OPM legends while letting new and up and coming Pinoy musicians to step up their games and showcase their original brand of musicality.
Consistent with its mission to promote goodwill while promoting local music, the first Wish 107.5 Music Awards was remarkable for using parts of the proceeds of the event to donate to charities. Cash donations of Php100,000 each will be given to the 18 chosen charities of the major award winners.

Held on January 26, 2016, the 1st Wish Music Awards had the big winners of the musical evening chose the beneficiaries of the prize. A total Php1.1 million was doled out during that evening.
On the 2nd Wish Music Awards, Wish debuted the Wishclusive Elite Circle, an award category that reward performances uploaded on YouTube with the most number of views.

The introduction of WISHclusive Elite Circle was spurred by the phenomenal rise of Wish 107.5’s online digital platform since 2016. Today, Wish 107.5’s YouTube channel has earned a massive followings, brought largely by a diverse array of WISHclusive performances by local and foreign musical acts

For the Wish Music Awards 2018, Wish announces that the major awards categories include Best WISHclusive Performance, WISH Original Song of The Year, and WISH Artist of the Year.

Other awards to be given are: WISH Promising Artist, WISHclusive Elite Circle Award, WISH Reactors’ Choice Award, and the WISH Music Icon.

Wish will choose the winners through a voting process, which comprises of online votes (15%) and the judges’ votes (85%).
