Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez
received the MYX Magna Award
for her considerable contributions to the Philippine music industry at the 2011 I ♥ MYX Music Awards
on March 15. PEP.ph reports
that the singer accepted the award in tears after a batch of young singers—including divas Rachelle Ann Go and Kyla
—performed her hit songs on the Music Museum stage. “Sa lahat ng batang musiko... Ipagpatuloy n'yo!
(To all young musicians, just continue what you’re doing!)” she is quoted as saying.
Meanwhile, rocker princess Yeng Constantino
was the star of the night, bagging four major awards
, namely Favorite Music Video, Female Artist, Song, and Celebrity VJ
. Her fifth award came in the form of the Favorite Collaboration Award
, when she shared the stage with 6 Cycle Mind and Kean Cipriano. The winners of the MYX Awards were determined through a public voting system, so Yeng made sure to give a shout-out to her fans, the Yengsters. “Thank you, everyone! Rock and roll!” she said.
