For being the first FM radio station in the country to hit one million YouTube subscribers, Wish 107.5 staged a free concert on March 18 at the Eastwood Mall Open Park.
The event, titled A Million Thanks for the One Million Subscribers, featured popular and up-and-coming stars including Jay R, Kris Lawrence, Tippy Dos Santos, Luke Mejares, Tim Pavino, Leah Patricio, 5th Gen, Jay Kent, JBK, Luky Robles, Kath Loria, JV Decena, Moses Akoh, Mica Javier, and Francis Lim.
These artists did not only impress the huge crowd with their live WISHclusive covers but also with their original materials.
“Wish helps us not only by giving us just a platform but a huge platform to share our music, our talents, our original music, our covers,” Kris, whose cover of “Versace on the Floor” holds the record of having the fastest WISHclusive video to reach one million YouTube views, shared.
Apart from the free concert, the leading FM YouTube Channel also granted the wishes of selected Wishers.
For her wish, 24-year-old Michelle Arroyo asked for a BP apparatus for her mother Rose who has hypertension. Meanwhile, the station also granted parents Regine Anne and Erwin Abaigar’s wish of giving their daughter Arabella a birthday celebration.
The station has also granted the wish of another avid fan Lovi Dela Cruz -- a wedding anniversary celebration package.
Teary-eyed Arlene Diction received a wheelchair from Wish. Her sister Maricel wished on her behalf when she visited the station’s Wishing Walls in Caloocan.
Wisher Cecille Guiterrez was also surprised when the station said it would answer the medical treatment she needs for her kidney disease. The wish that she originally had, which was also granted, was giving her two daughters brand new school supplies.
Wish, through BMPI’s Vice President for Radio Gerardo Etorma III, also held a soft launch for one of its flagship project this year, WISHcovery. The amateur singing competition will be using a mobile studio to “WISHcover” hidden OPM talents.
The Wish 107.5 YouTube Channel is only one of the station’s many innovations. It is also known for the Wish 107.5 Bus, the Wish 107.5 Music Awards and for its sustained wish-granting advocacy.
The upcoming face off between Jaclyn Jose and Katrina Halili in the new series on GMA 7 called D’Originals should be interesting to watch. The two are the industry’s most competent actresses and both played Angelica Santibañez in separate versions of the Mexican telenovela Marimar.
Katrina’s post on her Instagram account in which she is seen with Jaclyn of the clip where she pointed out the animal event of her event. Jaclyn remarked, “Maganda, lush, green—kulay ahas!” while giving Katrina a pointed look. “Isang balyenang daig pa ang inagawan ng oxygen sa dagat kaya nagwawala at nagkiki-kisay”, she said. D’Original wife answered back, “Oo, balyena ako. Sinisuguro ko sa iyo, hahampasin ka ng buntot ko…sa mukha mo!”
That’s the kind of repartee the audience will hear from the characters o the new series. And, according to netizens, it’s just in the teasers. What more if they’d be watching the real series!
The question: Who wins in the confrontation – Jaclyn or Katrina?
Besides the very competent co-stars, Ryza Cenon’s supporters are among those that encourage her to be very effective as Giorgia in Ika-6 na Utos.
According to the actress, among those who is giving her the necessary encouragement is her boyfriend, Pocholo Barretto. To him it’s never an issue that she is playing a mistress in the highly rating afternoon series.
Says the actress, “Sobrang understanding niya at supportive na boyfriend. Hindi niya ako pinapakialaman when it comes to work. We both understand kung ano ‘yung flow ng taping or shooting, kung ano ang mga nangyayari. Basta informed lang ang isa’t isa na ganito ‘yung story, ito ‘yung nangyayari, para walang gulatan.”
That inspires Ryza all the more in playing her character in the series.
Maine Mendoza and Sheena Halili have become the best of friends since the first day of taping of Destined To Be Yours.
If you follow the Instagram accounts of both stars, you’d see how close they had become.
Meanwhile, in the soap, the Obispo’s plan to sell their land was aborted when Benjie offered to help in defraying Sinag’s younger sister’s hospital bills.
But the revelation of who Benjie really is caused the rift between the budding couple.
It surprised me to see an image of former Kapuso, Janno Gibbs, in the top-rating Meant To Be.
Tina Paner even posted on her Instagram account a welcome message for the actor-singer-comedian. She said, while Meant To Be is Manilyn Reynes and Keempee de Leon’s reunion, with Janno around it will be a reunion for all of them, including Sheryl Cruz.
It seems Janno will play the role of Adonis Adlawan, a record producer. He was a fan of Amelia (Reynes), the reason why he wants to produce and release her album. Also, this would allow him to let Amelia know his feelings for her before.
Many are asking if Sanya Lopez and Rocco Nacino are now a couple.
They say the two can’t hide how they feel for each other, even in their scenes in Encantadia.
The two are both single and there’s no hindrance if their friendship and professional relationship turns into something romantic.
“Isa si Sanya sa mga nakakapagpa-smile sa ‘kin ngayon. And talagang na-e-enjoy ko ‘yung company niya,” Rocco said in one interview.
Sanya, meanwhile, said she’s not closing the doors on Rocco. “Kung ano man ang mangyari [sa ‘min], I’m open sa lahat,” she added. So does this mean that their love team in Encantadia will become true to life? As the teleserye would say at the end, “Abangan!
For now, can Avria (Eula Valdes) triumph in here attempt to seize Lireo?
