Jona, Ylona Garcia, and Michael Pangilinan lead the winners of the MOR Pinoy Music Awards 2017

OPM recording artists Jona, Ylona Garcia, and Michael Pangilinan are winners at the MOR awards 2017 held last Saturday, August 5, at the Kia Theatre in Quezon City.

Jona bagged the Best Song of the Year for "Maghihintay Ako." In a story by PUSH yesterday, August 6, Jona said she is happy and proud for the recognition. 

“Very thankful po ako, happy and proud kasi first MOR award ko po ito. Ito po ‘yung mga unang song po talaga na nagawa ko sa Star Music tapos nabigyan po ako ng chance to interpret sa Himig Handog P-Pop Love Songs and super happy po kasi napakaganda po kasi ng feedback sa song na ito and natutuwa po ako na na-recognize po siya as Song of the Year sa MOR,” the singer said.

Ylona Garcia, on the other hand, took home the Female Artist of the Year Award. The teen singer also won LSS Hit of the Year for the song "O Pag-ibig," which she sang together with Bailey May. 

The "PBB 737" alumna said, "Nagulat po talaga ako when my name was called and I am really thankful to everybody who stood by me no matter what, it’s amazing."

Michael Pangilinan, the singer behind "Hanggang Kailan," and "Bakit Ba Ikaw," won the Male Artist of the Year Award. 

Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber, both "PBB Lucky Season 7" alumni, won the Best Collaboration award for their song "Baliw."
