To keep the attendees safe, all who went to the Big Dome underwent a swab test. Strict health protocols were also implemented.

The Wish Music Awards return to the Big Dome on its sixth year.

Other nominated artists joined via video conferencing.

Continuing the tradition

While this year’s WMAs were unlike any of its previous editions, the event still carried the same spirit and tradition. 

Apart from celebrating Filipino artists and the works that they delivered during the past year, the awards night also highlighted its advocacy of paying it forward. Php 100,000 was given to each of the chosen beneficiaries of the winning acts, while the artists themselves received Php 25,000. 

On top of this, a total of Php 300,000 was donated to three key organizations that are providing support to the affected workers in the live events and music industries during the pandemic. These groups are the National Live Events Coalition PH, Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-Aawit, and Roadie Superstar. 

Another Php 70,000 went to the Arnel Pineda Foundation, Inc. as its founder, Journey vocalist Arnel Pineda, was named as this year’s KDR Icon of Music Philanthropy. 

Upon accepting the special distinction, he noted that the grant will “surely make a difference in the lives of the scholars that the foundation has been supporting for the past seven years.”

For this year, Wish 107.5 donated a total of Php 2.87 million to the WMAs’ winning artists and beneficiaries. 

In his speech, Wish 107.5’s President and CEO Kuya Daniel Razon shared that the station will “intensify the use of its platform to spread music, charity, and optimism,” especially during these tough times.

“And most importantly, together with the whole music industry, we will continue to pray to the Almighty for strength, resilience, and hope — dahil alam natin na ang Dios ang mag-iingat sa ating mga puso’t isipan (because we know that God will keep our hearts and minds),” he further remarked.

This event is made possible by our event presenters Man of Steel — Tayo Na! and PGA Sompo Insurance Corporation — Your Trusted Partner in Protection; co-presenters Puregold — Always Panalo and LG Electronics — Life’s Good, Huawei — Make it Possible; major sponsors EO, Executive Optical — Love Your Eyes, Eyeberry — Better Eyes for Better Life, and Kumu — Kumu Sama All, Where Authentic Connections Happen; minor sponsors Cartier Telecom — Your Latest Gadget On Hand, Neurotain — The Memory Enhancer, Ricoverin — An Effective Immunity Booster, TPG — Choose Life, Choose Day-Shift!, and Tough Mama — Nobody’s Tough Like Mama; and our partners BES House of Chicken, Daniel’s Coffee, Salut, EFS Apparel, Marcid Blue, ERC Travel Services, KDR Adventure Camp, Small Ville Dive Center and Resort, KDR Studios and Productions Incorporated, KDR Music House Company, Morong Star Hotel and Resort, and Clairee’s Flower Shop.
