A first look at WISHcovery’s Wishful 20
Keeping the theme of putting OPM artists on the spotlight, Wish’s anniversary party will also include the unveiling of WISHcovery’s Wishful 20.
WISHcovery is the latest innovation of the FM station popular for other ground-breaking projects such as the WISHclusive YouTube video series.
WISHcovery is the newest online singing competition in the Philippines.
The online singing competition, which starts to air this September via the Wish YouTube channel, aims to discover the next biggest singing sensation. It lists hitmaker Jungee Marcelo, The CompanY’s Annie Quintos and the country’s RnB King Jay R as its “resident reactors,” and RnB Prince Kris Lawrence as its host.
The prizes at stake include Php 2 million worth of cash and contract, a house and lot, and a brand-new car.
Staying true to Wish’s name
Since the station’s launch three years ago, it has touted itself as a wish-granting entity that helps fulfill the dreams of its listeners.
As it commemorates its third anniversary on the 31st, it has chosen two lucky individuals whose heartfelt wishes will be granted.
First is Caloocan City’s Maria France Barcelo, 27, who wants to give a relaxing day-off for her dedicated mother, who she fondly calls “Mamang.”
Another is Shiela Ann Ludera of Bulacan, who wishes to give her family a wonderful treat while her father, an overseas Filipino worker, is in the country.
Three years of innovation
Wish 107.5 was first introduced in the local broadcast industry on August 10, 2014. Its launching concert was punctuated by the unveiling of the country’s one and only FM-on-wheels, the Wish 107.5 Bus.
The fully-equipped Wish bus is one of the many innovations introduced by Wish 107.5.
For the past year alone, the unique performance venue has already witnessed a welcome invasion of international and local music stars including David Pomeranz, Dan Hill, The Moffatts, Regine Velasquez, Ogie Alcasid, Martin Nievera, Gary Valenciano, Lani Misalucha, and Ely Buendia, among many others.
The said period also saw the unprecedented rise of the station’s YouTube channel, whose million-strong following made it the no. 1 FM YouTube page in the Philippines.
Successes were also reaped as Wish received a number of awards, including the Platinum Stallion Media Awards’ special citation for innovative FM radio broadcasting.
Meanwhile, days prior the much-awaited anniversary celebration, OPM stars and singers are already sending in their congratulatory messages and well-wishes for the station that commemorates three years of great music and unprecedented initiatives.
Wish 107.5’s THREEmendous Thanks anniversary Roadshow concert is free of charge, and will be held at the Eastwood Central Plaza on August 31, 2017.
