Wishcovery Originals Grand Champion Peniel Roxas Wins Lumina House and Lot8 November 2021
Peniel Roxas, a singer-songwriter from Davao, was hailed as the grand champion of the Wishcovery Originals Grand Finals held last November 7 and streamed on the Wish 107.5 YouTube channel.
Roxas won a P1 million cash, a recording contract, a brand-new car, and a house and lot from Lumina Homes.
Her winning piece, "Poet's Path," is a thoughtful and symbolic picture of the Davaoeña songsmith's great conviction in pursuing the trade of music-making.
"I just want to thank my family, my friends, and everyone who found my music, listened to my music, or found something special in me because most of the time," she said in her speech as she accepted her award. Roxas extends her gratitude to the people who believed in her. "Thank you, thank you so much for seeing me and seeing my music."
Roxas and her fellow finalists showed off their singing and songwriting chops in front of 800 people at the LausGroup Event Center in Pampanga. There are also notable performances from Juan Karlos, Oh Flamingo, and Mayonaisse during the show.
The event implemented strict health and safety protocols throughout the show. Before the grand finals, the contestants, production staff, guest performers, and audience members tested negative for COVID-19.
Since the lockdowns started, the Wishcovery Grand Finals marks the first time performers and a sizeable audience gathered for an in-person musical event in the country.
The attendance of Wishers and music fans, who were there to see performances by young artists and veteran musicians alike — was appropriate for an event that tries to keep the OPM industry alive.
The Wishcovery Originals is a Wish 107.5 produced competition for talented Filipino singer-songwriters that aims to make the future of OPM shine even brighter.
Lumina Homes supports the purpose of the songwriting contest- celebrating OPM Music while also encouraging composers, singers, and all music artists affected by the pandemic. For years, Lumina has been sponsoring television and music contests, giving away every Filipino's greatest dream—a safe and secure home to call his own.

The Wishcovery Originals Journey
It all started with thousands of audition videos from aspiring singers and songwriters from across the country when it premiered last September 2019.
And also kicked off a series of weekly and monthly eliminations, but the show was temporarily paused in March last year due to the pandemic. The competition had over a year-long break for the safety of the contestants, judges, and the whole production.
Then it resumed by September 2021, picking up where the competition left off, with five OPM acts qualified for a spot in the grand finals and where the weekly winners contended to get the remaining two slots for the main event.
Before the finals, the contestants participated in Virtual Bootcamp Sessions with the judges to improve their musical abilities. During the Virtual Bootcamp, contenders both had one-on-one and collaborative work opportunities, which depicts adjusting to the new normal of the music industry and doing their best within limits.
All of the contenders also had the opportunity to give back to the community through charity. They provided 300 locals in Bataan with complimentary meals and grocery packs while they were prepping for the grand finals.
The Grand Finals night highlighted the music of the seven contenders: Peniel Roxas, From Outtakes, White Caps, PIP, JC Sales, Anthony Meneses, and Mei Teves.
The finalists' live performances accounted for 80% of their final score, with the remaining 20% coming from the total number of views on their Wishclusive videos. From October 25 to November 5, the power-viewing time was in effect.
Reactor-judges Jungee Marcelo, Mayonaisse's Monty Macalino, and Jay R composed the judging panel, communicating with the candidates via a virtual setting.
Peniel Roxas and her singing and songwriting skills bested the six other music contenders and received different prizes, including a Lumina house and lot. Mei Teves of San Juan City was named first runner-up and received P500,000, while White Caps of Agusan del Sur was named second runner-up and received P300,000.
