Winners were revealed in an intimate gathering of artists with and the people behind the records last 11 Dec 2013 by the Philippine Association of the Record Industry, Inc. (PARI). PARI concorded the simple celebration due to the recent typhoon and calamities. We are honored to be part of this year’s get together.AWIT Awards 2013 (5)

Notable artists were given merit including rap master Gloc-9 with the hit song “Sirena” named as Song of the Year, while his album “MKNM: Mga Kwento Ng Makata” was awarded as the Album of the Year.

“Maraming maraming salamat po sa lahat ng sumusuporta sa akin at sa lahat ng tumatangkilik ng trabaho ko. Sana’y ‘wag silang magsasawa, I’m very very thankful,” says rapper Gloc-9 for this second time Song of the Year win. “Iyong first time akong nanalo ng Song of the Year ay ang first time din na pagkapanalo ng isang rap music as Song of the Year. It’s very special to me.”

Winning for two consecutive years was really something special so I asked him the secret to claiming it this year. “Wala akong maisip na dahilan, kung meron man ay ang pagmamahal ko sa musikang ginagawa ko. Sabi ko nga, kahit nagkaka-edad ako, ang pagmamahal ko sa music na ito ay sanggol na sanggol pa. Sana mabigyan pa ako ng mahabang panahon para gawin ito. Never kong na-predict na magka-award ang isang kanta na ini-record ko kase ang feeling ko hindi po iyon ang tamang foundation ng pagre-record ng isang kanta. Nakaka-pressure din ‘yun on my part.”AWIT Awards 2013 (2)
