It has been almost a month since the A Song of Praise Music Festival Gran Finals Night was held at the Araneta Coliseum but still its fans and supporters cant just get enough and cant just move on from it. Last night, October 14, 2012, the A Song of Praise Music Festival Gran Finals Night has been telecast on UNTV 37 and as expected, there were many who have watched it some of them may have watched it for the first time and some of them may have watched it live on the very day it was happened.
There has been a tough line line up of finalists just like the past years. The songs writers or the composers for this year have may have certainly done a good job on writing the songs.
As to the chosen singers or interpreters, the songs that they sang is just right for them, they interpreted the songs very well.
The judges have spoken not only their comments for the songs, but also in relation to the event in general.
In the end, the chosen song entries have been announced. The song “Pag Ibig ay DIOS” composed by Jaime Enriquez and was interpreted by Renz Verano bagged the People’s Choice Award. The other special award has been given to Nikki Valdez as Best Interpreter. She interpreted the song, “Pupurihin Ka hanggang sa Kailanman” composed by Annalyn Altejos. While the major awards were given to Rommel Arguelles, the composer of the song, “Reasons to Believe”, interpreted by Gian Magdangal being the 3rd runner up. The second runner went to Domingo Rosco, the composer of the song, “Puso kong Nabuksan”, interpreted by Catherine Loria. The 1st Runner up went to Annalyn Altejos the composer of the song, “Pupurihin Ka hanggang sa Kailanman” as mentioned earlier was interpreted by Nikki Valdez.
