KREM-TOP Crowns #myBagongTimpla Songwriting Competition Grand Champion!
Hundreds of OPM compositions were submitted but only one reigned victorious! Last December 8, Krem-Top Coffee Creamer staged the #myBagongTimpla Songwriting Competition Concert at the Trinoma Activity Center where hundreds of fans celebrated original Pinoy music, accompanied with overflowing Krem-Top coffee mixes!
The event kicked off with the Top 10 finalists who performed the Krem-Top Bagong Timpla music video: Sumayaw, Sumunod to pump up the crowd!
Fast-rising OPM band IV Of Spades got the crowd going as they took the stage to perform their original songs, including "Hey Barbara", which had an impressive run on the MYX charts!
From 10, the #myBagongTimpla Songwriting Competition finalists were cut down to five! Elay Vaquilar ("Walang Iwanan"), Jau Capistrano ("Time Machine"), the trio of Chester Francisco, Kimberly Borja & Mark Paderes (#Hugot), the rap duo of Jigs Carugan and Daniel Quiachon ("Pedikab"), and husband and wife Robin & Mikki Emradura ("Wrong Sent"), were all given the privilege to perform their original compositions!
