ABS-CBN’s Star Music and Breakthrough and Milestones Production International (BMPI)’s Wish FM 107.5 will again join forces in the first major concert of Wish FM’s Wishful Five after the two music industry giants collaborated in the radio station’s Wishcovery search grand finals event a few months back.
The said concert, entitled Wishful Journey, features rising young stars Princess Sevillena, Kimberly Baluzo, Louie Anne Culala, Carmela Ariola and Ace Bartolome and is set on Tuesday, June 19, at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum. The five came out on top in the first Wishcovery nationwide talent search by Wish FM 107.5, with Sevillena winning the grand prize.
The Wishful Journey concert will also serve as a venue for launching their first collaborative album of the same name with Star Music, with the album featuring 18 tracks composed of originals and cover songs. The album is expected to hit platinum with the way the album’s carrier collab song “Patuloy ang Pangarap” has been making the rounds online and in radio playlists a few days after its release on digital platforms. Wishcovery’s first grand champion Princess Sevillena’s lyric videos of the songs “Walang Kasing Ikaw”, “Pangarap Kong Butuin” and “Sana’y Maghintay Ang Walang Hanggan” all have been performing strongly as well on Star Music’s Youtube channel.

The Wishful 5 could not be more thankful of the opportunity being given to them during the concert’s press conference yesterday at the 9501 Restaurant in Quezon City. Wishcovery’s first grand champion Princess Sevillena of Makati City, for one, exclaimed, “Never did I imagine that all these would happen to me in just a year – winning a huge contest, having my first album and launching it at the Big Dome.” She added, “The pressure is naturally there, but I believe that people will enjoy what we’ve prepared. We just need to focus on one goal – to make them happy.”
Big names in the local music scene such as OPM hitmaker Yeng Constantino, Asia’s Phoenix Morisette, R&B stars Daryl Ong and Kris Lawrence and “Pilipinas Got Talent” season 6 grand champion Kristel De Catalina will also perform in the event as special guests.
ABS CBN and Wish FM have been recently working together in major partnerships – the Morisette is Made concert and the Wishcovery Grand Finals are just two of the major projects the two entertainment giants have worked on together this year.
Concert tickets are now available through Ticketnet.com.ph. Meanwhile, the Wishful 5 debut album will be available on Monday, June 18, at the ABS-CBN Store.
