College Rivalry at the Himig Handog 2014

UAAP? NCAA? These are just some of the famous avenues for college rivalry. Nevertheless, university battles are not only confined to the sports scene as Himig Handog P-Pop Love Songs provides another venue for top Metro Manila colleges and universities to prove who reigns supreme.

The battle of the schools kicked off with the release of the Himig Handog P-Pop Love Songs 2014 official music videos last August 29. The top universities and colleges in the country will try to best each other as they created the music videos of the official top 15 finalists in the song competition.

Last year, Ateneo de Manila University won the Best Music Video Award for Daniel Padilla and Jungee Marcelo’s “Nasa Iyo Na Ang Lahat.” This year, they pair up with Jose Joel Mendoza’s “Hanggang Kailan” (interpreted by Angeline Quinto). Are the Blue Eagles looking at a back-to-back win? Or will Polytechnic University of the Philippines snatch the prize this year with MJ Magno’s “Simpleng Tulad Mo” (interpreted by Daniel Padilla)?
