Popstar royalty Sarah Geronimo led this year’s winners at the MYX Music Awards held on March 16 at Kia Theatre. She earned three recognitions, namely Favorite Music Video and Favorite Song for her hit “Tala” and Favorite Collaboration with the band Hale for the song “The Great Unknown.”

The Voice Kids alumnus Darren Espanto, meanwhile, received the coveted Favorite Artist award as well as the Favorite Male Artist award for the second consecutive year.

 “I’m really thankful that artists like myself are recognized for what we do,” said Darren. “But I regard this as a bonus. Awarded or not, we still want to give it our all. Always.”

Meanwhile, Gloc-9 also took home two trophies for the Favorite Urban Video and Best Music Video categories for his song “Hoy.”

“Many thanks to MYX, to the people who voted, to the people who still support me,” said the rapper. “It’s my 20th year and I don’t know how long I will keep doing this, so thank you for the support.”

Other artists that bagged awards include Nadine Lustre for Favorite Female Artist, Ylona Garcia for Favorite New Artist, Nash Aguas for Favorite Guest Appearance in a Music Video, and Sharlene San Pedro for Favorite Remake.

This year’s MYX Magna Awardee was given not to a music artist but to a producer who has been in the music scene for 50 years—Vic Del Rosario Jr.

Thyro, Yumi, Jinky Vidal, Jaya, and last year’s MYX Magna Awardee Ogie Alcasid paid tribute to his tremendous contribution in the local music scene with a performance of the songs his recording company has produced.
