“This is our third year at hindi po namin akalain na aabot sa pangatlong taon. Very successful po kase ang second year namin at ‘di namin akalain na for the first time, ngayon lang na ang isang nanalo na grand prize winner ay kinikilala na ring isang hit. Hit sa radyo, iTunes at You Tube,” opens Philpop executive director and composer Maestro Ryan Cayabyab said that winning songs must also be competent in making it a hit. “Nagpapasalamat kami sa PhilPop kasi kasama namin kayo sa pagpapalaganap ng Philippine music,” adds Mr. C. “PhilPop helps push Filipino music in the society as the the competition is open to amateurs and professionals of all ages.
