Asop songs ang dating daan
Quezon City, Philippines (November 9, 2016) – Noemi Ocio, a 19-year-old student, takes home the grand prize of Php 500,000 for winning the “Song of the Year” for “Kumapit Ka Lang,” her original composition in A Song of Praise (ASOP) Music Festival Year 5 grand finals held November 7 at the Big Dome.
Noemi’s winning piece was performed on stage by Carmela “Mela” Ravanilla.
Daniel Razon served as the main judges of the night, giving their comments after each song was presented—the portion of the program most awaited by all, especially the composers.“This event truly excites us all – especially all of us amateur composers. And the reason behind it is the desire to praise God whom we have known,” said Bro. The Overall Servants of MCGI told that the song’s musicality plays an important role for it to leave a lasting impression to the listener.
The tilt is open to all amateur and professional songwriters, regardless of race or religious affiliation.
(PHILIPPINES – October 30, 2016) Twelve new songs of faith from different parts of the world resounded in the ADD Convention Center in Apalit, Pampanga during the A Song of Praise Mid-Year 5776 Finals. However, they noted that it is the lyrics’ biblical poignancy and the composer’s faith that helped inspired the song into creation that weigh more during ASOP.“The key to all the things that we are doing inside the congregation, part of our faith, is trusting what God can do, that we should always set aside what we can do on our own. Eli asked the composers and interpreters to render “full devotion” in making songs of praise that other servants of God can sing as well.“If it is not against the will of God, I hope to see another event like this where I can hear songs that I see to have a touch of perfection of spiritual arts and music that are truly heavenly,” said Bro.
Taking home the music festival’s Song of the Mid-Year award was Sis. Sheru Abulencia for her song titled (Salt of the Earth).“One thing we want to impart to you, brethren, primarily is what the Lord Jesus Christ said that ‘without me you can do nothing’ (John 15:5),” said Bro. And that is mentioned in Proverbs 3:5, ‘Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.’” added Bro. Eli.[“Kung hindi naman labag sa kalooban ng Dios, I hope to see another event like this na sana makarinig ako ng mga awit na makikita kong [mayroong] touch of perfection of spiritual arts and music na talagang makalangit.]The event was streamed live across MCGI’s 1,360 satellite monitoring centers. Pabemazar Atienza of the North America Division bagged the Song of the Year-End 5775 Award last time, and was interpreted by Bro.
