I’ve always been fascinated by the annual Himig Handog Ppop Love Songs competition. It has always been my dream to watch it live but due to #onlychild problems, I simply could not. My parents wouldn’t allow me to go to Manila and watch concerts live. But since I’m now working in Manila, I finally had the opportunity to scratch this out from my bucket list.
On the day of the concert, my friend and I met up at around 5pm in Gateway Mall. Upon meeting up, we decided to have an early dinner at Mister Kabab before heading to Kia Theatre. We were already eating when we noticed that the members of Itchy Worms are dining on the table next to ours, not knowing that the song they interpreted “Dalawang Letra” which was composed by Davey Langit will be this year’s Ppop Love Song.
All the entries this year were really good. Personally, my favorite was Kyla & Kris’ “Monumento” which placed 2nd.
The List of Winners
Dalawang Letra – Itchy Worms (1st best song)
Monumento – Kyla & Kris Lawrence (2nd best song)
Laban Pa – KZ Tandingan & Jay-R (3rd best song)
Tama Lang – Jolina Magdangal (4th best song)
Parang Tayo Pero Hindi – Angeline Quinto & Michael Pangilinan (5th best song)
Indeed, it was a joy to watch every artist interpret the song that was assigned to them. They all did very well and I’m looking forward to watching live again next year.
