Fast-rising FM station Wish 107.5 is all set to mount its very first music awards on January 26 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. Touted to be a night that will gather great music and artists, the event dubbed, “Wish 107.5 Music Awards: The Coolest Musical Experience” is headlined by promising acts Leah Patricio, The Voysing, Jason Fernandez, Daryl Ong, Jek Manuel, Brad Go, and Maki Ricafort.
Wish is best known as the “Mobile FM station” via the year-and-half-old Wish 107.5 Bus, which airs the best of OPM music from the busy streets of Metro Manila. The bus is also an avenue for featured artists to showcase their music live for fans all over the city.
