About the Himig Handog

Now on its 5th year, the 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 a known genres. It is the Philippines’ first interactive multimedia songwriting tilt launched by ABS-CBN in 2000 and was originally used to pay tribute to 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 its third and fourth tilts in 2002 and 2003, it opened its doors for the romantic lyricists in Himig Handog Love Songs.

You may remember the song “Hanggang” which was interpreted by Wency Cornejo in 2001, was one of the few many songs that was made famous through the Himig Handog.
