With his winning composition entitled “Binago Mo Ako”, singer-musician Jett Villareal advances to A Song of Praise (ASOP) Music Festival Year 7 grand finals.
Performed by Maki Ricafort, the song bested Rolando Tan’s worship anthem “Di Magsasawa Sa’Yo” performed by Lucky Robles and Oliver Narag’s praise song “Wag Kang Bibitiw” interpreted by Jessa Mae Gabon.
“The song is my gift back to God for giving me wisdom, talent, and skill,” the composer said in an interview. “I had struggles, past experiences, wrong decisions in life. But at the end of the day, you will realize that God loves us because we’re still on the right path,” he added.
When asked about what he learned, Villareal said: “The Ready, Fire, Aim Technique”. Noting the musical advice of the show’s judges, he said that studying the action timeline of his song is a memorable learning experience.
The composer, as he marks his first songwriting milestone, expressed gratitude to the program for giving him an avenue to showcase his talent.
The composition will be included in ASOP commemorative CD.
