After the success of MYX Charts app, which became the world’s most downloaded free music application in the Android Market, MYX, the no. 1 music channel in the Philippines, now embarks on achieving a new milestone, the MYX Music Awards 2012.
This year’s announcement of MYX Music Awards’ nominees was held today, February 8 earlier at 3 p.m. in Red Box Eastwood, via the top music channel’s equally patronized online platform www.myxph.com. It was really special and fun, as tons of MYX and OPM artists followers were able to witnessed the announcement and some performances from Someday Dream, Zia Quizon and Yeng Constantino live.
Last year was believed to be the emergence of fresh OPM acts and the return to original compositions. That’s why MYX Channel Head Andre Allan Alvarez wants to continue the channel’s legacy, as he aims to jump start OPM’s new Golden Age.
It can be recalled that the 70’s was the Golden Age of OPM. Now, the MYX Music Awards proudly brings back this colorful era with a series of offerings that every music lover will surely love.
He added that every music and artist - be it rock, pop, R&B, etc. - as its own potential of getting known worldwide.
“As a music channel, MYX takes pride in letting artists perform no matter which network or station they belong to. So long as you’re a performer or a musician, MYX welcomes you, regardless of network affiliation,” Alvarez said.
At the live nomination, MYX VJs will also join in the fun, while Rock Princess Yeng Constantino, electronica-themed Somedaydream and Zia Quizon will spice up the event with their exciting performances. The nominations will also go in depth, as press people will participate in this timely discussion.
MYX Music Awards, which is the biggest award-giving body in Philippine music, aims to uplift and honor the best-of-the-best original Pilipino music or OPM. With the tagline “Your Choice. Your Music.” MYX has always been commended for being the venue of fresh talents to the biggest mainstream artists.
