Wishcovery Semi-Finalist Ivy Arroyo followed with her version of “Same Ground” by Kitchie Nadal, “‘Di Na Muli” by Janine Teñoso, and “Kahit Ayaw Mo Na” by This Band.

As Davaoeños continued to fill the open field another local act also showcased their musicality. Indie folk outfit THEA rocked the night with their originals, “Tainted Gold,” “Sa Kwarto,” and “Aguhon.”

While singer-songwriter Arven Arches swayed the audience’s emotions as he sang to the strum of his guitar, OPM duo Marvin Blue Corpus proved that they are indeed gems as they gave out their rendition of Rihanna’s “Diamond.”

Wishcovery Season 2 Grand Finalists Anna Marie Guinsisana and Angelica Bermoy also served as inspiration to aspiring singers in Davao City as they sang their competition pieces to their fellow Mindanaoans.
