The highly anticipated 6th Wish 107.5 Music Awards (WMA) happens today at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in a special event strictly for invited guests only. The esteemed list includes the nominees, performers, hosts, record label representatives, and event organizers.
This year’s “new normal” edition will not be open to the public as those who are at the on-site venue will be required to undergo COVID-19 testing and to strictly adhere to health and safety protocols.
The spectacle, also the first edition in this new normal world, will recognize the top Wishclusive performances, songs in the past year, and Filipino musical acts in the country.
Despite the venue being off-limits to the public this year, Wishers from different parts of the world can watch the livestream via Wish 107.5’s official YouTube channel.
The premier awards show will feature performances from soul artist KZ Tandingan, hip-hop phenomenon Gloc-9, P-Pop breakthrough SB19, iconic OPM band Parokya ni Edgar, rising rapper Michael Pacquiao, singer-songwriters Clara Benin, Leanne & Naara, Reese Lansangan, Keiko Necesario, pop band Music Hero, vocal group The Wishfuls, and Australian singer-songwriter Guy Sebastian.
Gretchen Ho and Christian Bautista will serve as hosts.
As in previous years, charity is a major part of the WMAs. On top of winning an iconic WMA trophy and a cash prize of P25,000, WMA winners will be given the opportunity to donate P100,000 to a charitable organization of their choice.
Two awards named after the man behind Wish 107.5, Kuya Daniel Razon will once again be given to music industry luminaries. The KDR Icon of Musical Excellence Award will be handed to a notable name in the industry who has left a lasting impact on the country’s music scene, while the KDR Icon of Music and Philanthropy Award aims to give nod to an individual or a group that uses music as an instrument to spread hope and compassion to others.
