The A Song of Praise Music Festival or ASOP is the only Gospel songwriting festival on Philippine television of its kind.
Open to all amateur and professional songwriters, ASOP searches for the best songs of praise for a whole year, amounting to 12 song entries for the Grand Finals.
Entries are performed on stage and are judged by a panel of acclaimed singers and songwriters like Noel Cabangon, Mon Del Rosario, and Vehnee Saturno.
Weekly winners go on to the monthly eliminations where those chosen proceed to the Grand Finals for a chance to win PHP 500,000 for the Grand Prize. Runners-up receive prizes exceeding PHP 100,000 each and non-winners are given plaques and consolation prizes.
A brainchild of Kuya Daniel Razon, ASOP aims to bring back songs of praises in the daily lives of people. In the hope that with the help of their beautiful melodies and sincere lyrics, the songs will help remind all of God’s love for His creatures, and the great amount of trust that they can put in Him.
Hosted by Richard Reynoso and Tony Rose Gayda, ASOP airs on Sundays, 7 p.m. on UNTV. For more information about ASOP and how you can join, please click here.
