Wish To Know

Posted on: February 21st, 2017

For over two years now, the Wish 107.5 Bus has been serving as a unique platform where artists of different genres get to share their music via live, ticketless road concerts. As of writing, over 200 acts — mostly homegrown and  a couple of foreign singers — have already graced the iconic music hub.

In this list, we’ve gathered all the WISHclusives staged by international music stars you wouldn’t dare miss. Sit back, turn up the volume and watch these world-renowned acts conquer a performance stage that perfectly fits their legendary names.

Rex Smith – “Simply Jessie”

Rex Smith debuted at the 1978 Broadway play “Grease.” He is also known for his role as Jesse Mach in the 1985 television series “Street Hawk.” In the early 70s, he was the lead singer of the Georgia-based band Phaedra. His critically-acclaimed “Sooner of Later” album has spawned international smashes including the pop/soft rock track, “Simply Jessie.”

Rex Smith – “You Take My Breath Away”

Another cut from his “Sooner of Later” record, “You Take My Breath Away” served as Smith’s 1979 debut single. Romantically depicting how love can leave one speechless (and breathless), the song reached the No. 10 on Billboard Hot 100 and was included in the television movie with the same name as Smith’s album.

Big Mountain – “Baby, I Love Your Way”

American reggae/pop band Big Mountain is most recognized for their cover of the Peter Frampton classic, “Baby, I Love Your Way.” The rendition gave them a Top 10 hit single in the United States. The group lists 11 studio albums and four compilations under their belt.

Inner Circle – “Sweat (A La La Long)”

Inner Circle is a Jamaican reggae act known for blending pop and rock elements with their traditional sound. The group released “Sweat” back in August 1993 as the lead single off their “Bad to the Bone” album. The reggae fusion track charted strongly in different countries, including Australia, UK and US.

Belinda Davids – “I Will Always Love You/The Greatest Love of All”

Belinda Davids channels Whitney Houston in her spot-on performance of the pop diva’s biggest hits, “I Will Always Love You/The Greatest Love of All.” Davids is a South African celebrity who has already toured New Zealand, Singapore, Canada, Philippines and the USA as a tribute artist of Houston.

Dan Hill – “Sometimes When We Touch”

Award-winning singer/songwriter Dan Hill performs an acoustic rendition of his love anthem “Sometimes When We Touch” live on the Wish 107.5 Bus. The ballad released in 1977 serves as Hill’s biggest hit, with the song reaching the third spot on the US Billboard Hot 100.

David Pomeranz – “On This Day”

With a career spanning almost five decades, David Pomeranz is one of the most successful artists the music industry has produced. His resume includes 18 Gold and 22 Platinum records, sold-out concerts and a myriad of memorable love songs including the popular wedding track, “On This Day.”

The Moffatts – “Girl of My Dreams”

The Moffatts serenade Wishers with their acoustic rendition of  their sweet sing-along, “Girl of My Dreams.” The Canadian pop group is composed of brothers Scott, Clint and Bob (original member Dave left to pursue a different career). The three visited the country to stage a farewell concert at the SMART- Araneta Coliseum.

The Moffatts –  “I’ll be There For You”

It’s time to get those cheery yet nostalgic 90s vibes with “I’ll Be There For You,” an uptempo track from The Moffatts.

The Moffatts – “Miss You Like Crazy”

The Moffatts might have said farewell as a group, the boyband left something for their fans to dearly remember by — their WISHclusive performance of “Miss You Like Crazy.”
