Manila, Philippines – The Philippines’ Next Big Diva Morissette Amon bags a total of eight awards during the second annual Wish 107.5 Music Awards (WMA) held Monday evening at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Known as one of the “birit queens” of ABS-CBN’s Sunday variety show ASAP, Morissette won the Best Wishclusive Performance by a Female Artist for “Secret Love Song”; Best Wishclusive Collaboration for “I Finally Found Someone” with Journey’s frontman Arnel Pineda; Wish Original Song of the Year by a Female Artist for “Throwback” featuring Soul Supreme KZ Tandingan and Wish Female Artist of the Year.

By winning these four major awards, she was able to donate a total of Php 350,000 to her chosen beneficiary, Meritxell Children’s World Foundation, Inc, a charity for abandoned, neglected, orphaned or abused children, on top of her personal cash prize winnings.

Half of the prize allotted for charity for the Best Wishclusive Collaboration category was given to Arnel Pineda Foundation, Inc. (Php 50,000). The 2nd WMA has granted Php 100,000 to the chosen beneficiaries of the winners of the major categories, just like in the inaugural year of the music awards.

The 20-year-old former “The Voice of the Philippines” contender also swept the Wish 107.5’s special social media awards – Wish Reactors Choice Award for “Secret Love Song,” and Wish Viral Video of the Year for “Secret Love Song.”

She also became a pioneer member of the ‘Wishclusive Elite Circle,’ along with Darren Espanto and Bugoy Drilon, and was given Bronze Awards for two of her Wishclusive performances after reaching 10 million views each.

The Elite Circle is composed of OPM artists whose performances have drawn at least 10 million views at year-end on the Wish 107.5’s YouTube page.

In 2016, Morissette’s cover of Little Mix’s “Secret Love Song,” shot onboard the Wish 107.5 Bus, got over 1 million hits in just a week after its premiere and over 19 million at the end of the year. It now has over 21.3 million views and counting on YouTube.

Meanwhile, her rendition of Mariah Carey’s “Against All Odds” breached the 11 million mark as of December 31 and 12.2 million to date.

Morissette became emotional on stage upon receiving the Wish Viral Video of the Year award as she thanked her fans for their overwhelming support.

“I am really, really grateful to all those who shared my videos, all those who were able to relate to the song. Thank you very much. I would also like to acknowledge, of course, the YouTube reactors’ videos which I also watch at home. And on behalf of all the artists and all the performers, thank you so much once again Wish for letting us perform,” said Morissette tearfully to the audience.

In an interview by UNTV’s Aiko Miguel, Morissette gave her warm thanks to all her supporters.

During the event, Morissette also belted out a cover performance of “Secret Love Song” with Marcelito Pomoy, Pilipinas Got Talent Season 2 Grand Winner. [techthetruth]
