4th Wish 107.5 Music Awards: Complete List of Winners

Jan 15, 2019

Wish 107.5 kicked off the brand-new year with the culmination of the 4th Wish 107.5 Music Awards held January 15, Tuesday, at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum.

On its fourth installment, the FM radio station celebrated its journey of breaking boundaries — giving recognition to a diverse lineup of winners, offering outstanding production numbers, and unveiling its bold plan to continue the game-changing endeavors it has started, with the launch of the 3rd Wish 107.5 Bus as one of the event’s highlights.

The Winners

Wish 107.5 recognized artists, songs, and Wishclusives through 18 categories. Winners were selected through votes from the public (20%) and from a select panel of judges (80%).

This year’s judges include world-class theater singer-actress Isay Alvarez, singer-songwriters Jay Durias and Kitchie Nadal, National Youth Commission’s Commissioner-at-Large Asec. Paul Anthony Pangilinan, and YouTube reactors Dan Evans (UK) and Shaylem te Paiho (Australia).

As in the previous editions of the awards show, charity played a key role in making each winner’s victory more noble. Apart from the 25,000 peso-worth of cash prize they received, their chosen beneficiaries were also granted with Php 100,000.

Since its inaugural year — including the recently concluded 4th WMA — a total Php 7.125 million has already been given away.

The Elite Circle is a group of musical acts whose Wishclusive videos have garnered at least 10 million views. (See full list of Elite Circle awardees here).

Morissette further received the Wishers’ Choice award for garnering the highest number of combined votes from the WMA’s public voting platforms (i.e., website, Wish app, and the Wish YouTube channel).

Meanwhile, Breaking Boundaries awards were also handed out to The TNT Boys and The Wishfuls. The former broke into the international scene with their various TV show stints albeit their young age; the latter sold over 15,000 units for their debut album “Wishful Journey” in just a span of one day.
