No pandemic could stop the biggest local music channel in the Philippines from honoring the biggest hitmakers of today. In a 2-hour online event that happened on Saturday, July 25, MYX Philippines gave recognition to the most successful local and international acts for the year. They also showcased exclusive musical performances from both OPM and international artists.
