THE Bacolod City Council approved a resolution expressing their gratitude and congratulations to Edgardo Miraflor Jr., a Bacolodnon whose composition entitled “Loco de Amor” was awarded as the best novelty recording during the 32nd Awit Awards held at the New Frontier Theater, Quezon City on October 10.
The resolution, authored by Councilor Simplicia Distrito, was approved during the regular session of the City Council on Tuesday.
Distrito said the Awit Awards is a highly acclaimed award giving body in the Philippines headed by the Philippine Association of the Record Industry, Inc. (PARI) that recognizes performances of Filipino artists and the people behind the making of Filipino recorded music.
She said Miraflor is a Bacolodnon composer and artist who has been carving his name in the Philippine Music Industry, working at par with the country’s best performers, artists and songwriters.
She added that Miraflor’s funny and entertaining composition was interpreted by BennyBunnyband under Viva Records.
Distrito noted that Miraflor’s extraordinary efforts are commendable considering that it showcases Bacolod’s artistry, love and passion for music.
“Such achievement is truly an inspiration and worthy to be emulated by our local composers and musicians in the City who are yet to present their talents with other Filipino artists,” Distrito said.
