The 2nd Wish Music Awards

The night of the 2nd Wish Music Awards is not like other typical award giving events that only give recognition to its awardees. WMA is far different and unique as they did not only recognize the Pilipino great talents, but they also give them a chance to share their winning moments to help others. Wish FM allotted more than one million pesos for the event to be given to the artists’ chosen charity institutions who received the major awards. Each major award has a cash prize of Php 100, 000 (for beneficiary) and Php 25,000 (for winner).

Kuya Daniel Razon, the UNTV-BMPI’s Chairman and CEO and the Philippine’s Mr. Public Service is the man behind Wish 107.5 FM’s unique and great concept and innovations. It is a breakthrough that practically made a revolutionary impact not only in the Philippine FM Radio industry, but also in abroad.

“Everything that you have witnessed tonight started with just a wish and of course a fervent prayer that we will always be able to take the first step to complete a noble deed, that we will be able to introduce innovations and transform them into something more rewarding for a greater number of individuals” said Kuya Daniel Razon in a special audio-visual presentation.

Wish also invited some of the veteran and multi-award personalities to serve as panel of judges. They are the following:

  • Pure Energy and Ambassador for United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Garry Valenciano.
  • Chairman of the Board of the Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit (OPM) Mitch Valdez.
  • The President of the Philippine Association of the Record Industry (PARI) Alvin De Vera.
  • Board Member of the Filipino Society of Composers Noel Cabangon.
  • Authors and Publishers, Inc. (FILSCAP) Billboard Philippines’ Editor-in-Chief Francis Reyes.
  • 2015 Miss Earth Champion Angelica Ong.
  • and Entertainment Editor of National Newspaper, Manila Standard Today Isah Red.

And the event will not be fully successful without the presence of the guest artist performers who shared their piece of talents that gave goosebumps to the audiences. And the thousands of Wishers and artists’ fans who filled the big dome with joyful cheers and applaud of excitement.
