Autocad Operator Wins ASOP Year 8’s First Monthly Finals

Posted on: November 29th, 2018

Just two weeks after the success of the A Song of Praise Music Festival Year 7 grand finals, a brand-new upbeat gospel song entry is now poised to take a coveted spot for next year’s grand finals night.

Jhoter Jone B. Villan, an autocad operator from Taguig City, swayed the judges with his infectious R&B praise song titled “O Ama”(Oh Father) and bagged ASOP Year 8’s first monthly elimination. This is Villan’s third attempt at creating a song of praise for ASOP.


The song, which shares the importance of serving the Lord at a young age and for the rest of one’s life, was interpreted by Wishcovery Season 1 contender Tabitha Caro.

On Winning the Monthly Finals

Villan shared that he valued the judges’ comments and suggestions and applied it to his song after winning the weekly finals for the month of November.

Though admittedly nervous, Villan shared that his mother’s love and support gave him the confidence boost that he needed during the monthly finals. “That’s the way things go. In small dreams come the big achievements,”was his mother’s message that he brought with him as he faced three other monthly finalists last November 25, 2018.


His entry emerged victorious, winning the monthly eliminations with a score of 93.67%.

Being the first monthly winner for ASOP Year 8, Villan brought home a cash prize of P50,000.00 and a chance to win P800,000 more in the grand finals.

Villan still looks forward to composing more songs of praise that can catch the attention of listeners and can be sung for the many years to come.
