This year 2013, 12 finalists will vie for the crown for the Favorite Song and Favorite Music Video for the HIMIG HANDOG P-POP LOVE SONGS Year 5.

Before I give you the 12 final songs, let me give you a brief background of what is this Himig Handog Competition.

The first 3 paragraphs are excerpt from the Himig Handog ABS-CBN Site

Himig Handog, the country’s premiere songwriting competition returns to the music scene this year to once again discover talented composers whose works are set to be the next OPM classics.

Now on its 5th year, Himig Handog paves the way for amateur and professional Filipino songwriters, here and abroad, to showcase their exceptional flair for creating beautiful music in any popular music genre or a fusion of known genres.

Himig Handog is Philippines’ first interactive multimedia songwriting tilt launched by ABS-CBN in 2000 originally to pay tribute to the overseas Filipino workers. It was then called Himig Handog sa Bayaning Pilipino. In its second year, it celebrated youth power through JAM: Himig Handog sa Makabagong Kabataan 2001. Then for the third and fourth tilts in 2002 and 2003, it opened its doors for the romantic lyricists in Himig Handog Love Songs.

As I have said a while ago, this year, from all over 2,500 original compositions, 12 songs have made it to the final slot and now they are in one compilation album which I bought earlier and voted already for the Favorite Song and Favorite Music Video which of course I will not reveal.
The following paragraphs are excerpt from Starmometer's site which will be found here.
