Singer-songwriter Peniel Roxas has finally made her dreams come true. As the grand champion of Wishcovery Originals, she just won P1 million cash, a recording contract, a brand-new car, and a house and lot from Lumina Homes.
Wishcovery Originals is a Wish 107.5-produced competition for talented Filipino singer-songwriters.
“I just want to thank my family, my friends, and everyone who found my music, listened to my music, or found something special in me because most of the time, I don’t think I deserve it. Thank you, thank you so much for seeing me and seeing my music,” Roxas said in her speech.
Roxas, along with her fellow finalists, showed off their singing and songwriting chops in front of 800 people at the LausGroup Event Center in Pampanga.
Strict health and safety protocols were implemented throughout the show. Prior to the grand finals, the contestants, staff guest performers, including Juan Karlos Labajo, Oh, Flamingo!, and Mayonnaise, and the audience members tested negative for COVID-19.
The live performances of the finalists composed 80% of their final score, while the remaining 20% came from the total number of views in their Wishclusive videos. The power-viewing period took place from October 25 to November 5.
The panel of judges was comprised of Mayonnaise’s Monty Macalino, Jungee Marcelo, and Jay R, who kept in touch with the contestants through a virtual setup.
Since the lockdowns started, the Wishcovery Grand Finals marks the first time performers and a sizeable audience gathered for an in-person musical event in the country.
