The first-ever Philippine Popular Music Festival champion is former Akafellas member Karl Villuga with his song "Bawat Hakbang". "We are looking forward to again stage the biggest and most illustrious song writing competition in Philippine history with an even more songwriters vying for the 1 million peso grand prize," added Mr.C.
