CALOOCAN CITY, Philippines — Praise song entry “Dahil Sa’Yo” of OPM artist and composer Carlo David was hailed as the 1st song of the week this April on A Song of Praise Music Festival (ASOP).

Carlo is the son of award-winning US-based Filipino jazz drummer and singer Mon David.

Coincidentally, he was one of the interpreters at the last ASOP Grand Finals. But this time Carlo wants to be in the finals as a finalist composer. This is why he is determined to win the monthly elimination round.

“Overjoyed. Maraming maraming salamat. Maraming salamat po sa ASOP. (I am overjoyed. Thank you very much, thank you ASOP). I’m looking forward to the next episode, I have to battle again and improve the song.”

Carlo has chosen Kevin Yadao as the interpreter for his composition.

Kevin Yadao said, “Nagulat din ako, eh. Natuwa ako kasi he trusted me with the song and dun sa medyo last parts binigyan na ‘ko ng freedom para mag-adlib (I am also surprised. I am happy that he trusted me with the song and at the last parts, Carlo gave me freedom to do adlibs).”

Yadao also commended the contest, “Sobrang amazing ng ginagawa ng ASOP kasi ‘yun naniniwala ako na there’s a festival na buhay ang music natin. Tapos unique siya kasi it’s about praise, about sa ating Lord ang nabibigay ‘yung message naman (A Song of Praise Music Festival did an amazing job because I believe that there’s a festival that our music is alive. Then, it’s so unique that it’s about praising the Lord and the music is really delivered.) .”

ASOP judges were all praises for Carlo David’s song.

Judge Trina Belamide said, “One of the things, I like most about this song was overall ‘yung music flavor niya… eto, iba ‘yung tunog niya, iba ‘yung chord progressions (One of the things, I like most about this song was its overall flavor. The sound is different as well as the chord progressions.) .”

Judge Mon Del Rosario said, “Honestly, nagulat ako… hindi ko akalain na ‘yung level ng song writing ni Carlo ay ganito na (Honestly, I was surprised. I didn’t know that Carlo’s song writing level has reached this far).”
