ASOP Music Festival 2012 grand finals tonight for "A Song Of Praise"


I didn't know that there's a music festival for praise songs and music, and also there's a song writing contest created by amateur and professional composers and these songs will be performed by our singers and also musicians, and also include some rockstars. The music fest dubbed as ASOP aka A song Of Praise, will have its grand finals tonight Sept 24, 2012 at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.

When I saw the video teaser and showcasing each song, the composer and the artist. My only comment is wow!!! I just hope that this will bring good music to the mainstream level, the songs are good and also the artist interpreting the song and music is perfect. Congrats to all composers who made it to the grand finals.
