Truly, nothing beats the feeling of having someone who loves you to bring out the best in you no matter how many people try to put you down. In the end, it’s all about picking up from where you fell and putting yourself together. This is what popular young singer Moira dela Torre proved in the recently held Awit Awards.
Despite going through a lot of bashing, the young and talented singer-songwriter revealed in one of her interviews that she has learned how to deal with negative comments by simply responding to them using lyrics of her songs. Moira admitted that she used to have trouble dealing with criticisms in the past but as she has grown into a full-blown record-breaking artist, she learned to even offer prayers for her bashers. She added that whenever someone shows negativity, the person may be going through something difficult in life or feels empty inside; thus, instead of responding in a bad way, she affirms these people with her own song lyrics, sealed with a prayer.
The “most streamed artist on Spotify” bagged numerous recognitions at the recently held 2019 Awit Awards at the New Frontier Theater last Thursday. The twenty five year old singer-songwriter took home not one, not two – but six prestigious awards including “Music Video of the Year”, “Album of the Year”, “Song of the Year”, “Most Streamed Single”, and “Most Streamed Album”.
Meanwhile, Sarah Geronimo also bagged numerous awards during the said event such as “Best Song Written for Movie/TV/Stage Play”, “Best Performance by a Female Recording Artist”, and “Favorite Female Artist”.
Other award winners include Maris Racal for “Favorite New Female Artist” and “Favorite Music Video” as well as Juan Karlos for “Best Performance by a Male Recording Artist”, “Best Rock/Alternative Recording”, “Favorite Male Artist”.
Moira dela Torre marked her name in the local music industry for her Himig Handog winning single “Titibo-tibo”. She became Spotify Philippines’ number one most streamed artist last year after releasing her full album “Tagpuan”, which comprises beautiful songs such as “Malaya” and “Tagpuan”, among others.
