Mar 9, 2019

Wish 107.5 is wherever talented Filipinos are.

And it has been recently proven as the second Wish Bus in the country left the thoroughfares of the Metro on Thursday for its provincial tour.

The iconic Wish Bus is set to conquer the roads of key cities not just in Luzon, but also in Visayas and Mindanao. The musical vehicle has become a sought-after stage for both local and international artists whose Wishclusive performances have already yielded an accumulated 1.7 billion views on Youtube.

On March 8, 2019, the Wish Bus had its first stop at the Unibersidad de Sta. Isabel in Naga City where it was welcomed by students from all levels.

For its second stop, the Wish Bus headed over to Bicol State College of Applied Sciences and Technology, where alternative rock band Lonely Koala performed their original composition “Tala.”

The band’s unfeigned performance was followed by Joslier Guevarra’s heartfelt cover of Juan Karlos’ “Buwan” and Jayco Elad’s rendition of “Bakit Ba Ikaw” by Michael Pangilinan. Both local acts were part of the recently concluded Wishcovery Season 2.

Shortly after their performances, the Wish Bus bounced to its next stop, which was Robinsons Place Naga, where acoustic-turned-alternative rock band Save the Youth, showcased their musical prowess as they sang their originals, “Sta. Rafaella,” “Donna,” and “Hanna.”

Bicolano Wishers warmly welcomed the Wish Bus on its fourth stop, SM City Naga, where they witnessed Jade Bongat perform her original song, “Sisa Baya An May Sabi,” aboard the FM radio mobile.

Her angelic performance was followed by 19-year-old Jeva Antonio’s versatile sound as she sang her rendition of Lani Misalucha’s Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin and Sitti’s “Para Sa Akin.”

The musical road tour in Naga City ended with a special jamming night over at Plaza Quezon, which featured performances from Mang Groove, Annie Mae Costo, Wishcovery Season 2 third runner-up Paula Guevara, and Wishcovery Season 1 alum Lyka Boñol along with her band Unify.
