The making of a new star was witnessed by thousands of WishFM 107.5 wishers that unfold inside Smart Arenata Coliseum the night of March 27, 2018. The fans were excited to witness the performance of 5 wishfuls namlely; Carmela Ariola, Luoie Ann Culala, Hacel Bartolome, Kimberly Baluzo and Princess Sevillena.

The wishfuls went through Five Wish Rounds;

1.    Youtube Pageview – run for two weeks prior to the finals
2.    Solo and Wish Bus Performance
3.    OPM Medley that show-cased their talent before International or Foreign Reactors from New YorK (Richie Rich and Cicero Oca) where they got their score.
4.    Group Performance of the wishful  5
5.    Live Perfomance that highlight their vocal prowess and flexibility.

The wishful 5’s performances were a winner. They showed why they were among the top 5 finalist and they deserve to be there.  The grand finals were under the watchful eyes of the resident reactors Mr. Jungee Marcelo (Jungeeneer), Annie Quintos (Annielist), JayR (Jay-Rchitect), who not only judged them but guided and mentored them as well during the whole competition and preparations.

It was a night to remember. Indeed, a new STAR was born. PRINCESS SEVILLENA from Metro Manila became the first WISHcovery Grand Champion. It wasn’t an easy feat for Princess who needed to pass through a wildcard elimination to join the waiting 4 grand finalist. Her star shine the brightest and her wish was granted to become the first Grand Champion.

The beautiful 24-year old winner received 2 million pesos cash and contract, Bria house and a brand new car. Kimberly Baluzo emerged as the 1st Runner-up received 500 thousand pesos, Louie Anne Culala was the 2nd Runner-up  received 300 thousand pesos, Carmela Ariola 3rd Runner-up received 100 thousand peos and Hacel Bartolome as well. All the wishful 5 already received a 5-year contract with BMPI (Breakthrough and Milestone Production International) and 2-year contract with Star Music.

Aside from their individual prize, each of the wishful 5 will donate 100 TOUSAND PESOS to their chosen beneficiaries. This is the only singing competition that helps less fortunate people. This was conceptualized by BMPI CEO Kuya Daniel Razon. His advocacy of doing good to all made his programs unique and outstanding with the help and mercy of the Almighty Father.

Dr. Daniel Razon remarked “Wishcovery does not end here as we have great plans for our Wishful 5. As you all know, each of them have already inked not one but two contracts — with BMPI and Star Music. They will also receive Php 100,000 for their chosen beneficiaries,” 

Marcelito Pomoy, Christian Bautista and Eric Santos were the guest singers. The three were a product also of singing competition, another similarity with the winner, Eric Santos also came from wildcard and then as champion.

Princess Sevillena was consistent in all rounds that made her the champion starting from the page-view to her emotional rendition of the song “Sana’y Maghintay Ng Walang Hanggan” originally sung by Sharon Cuneta in her final performance.

It was really a WISH come true for our Wishful Princess Sevillana. Congratulations to all the Wishfuls. All of you are winners.

Thanks Be To GOD! To GOD Be All The Glory!
