Pambansang Banda ng Bayan
Once again, Parokya ni Edgar have proven that they are indeed the “Pambansang Banda ng Bayan” when they received not just one but two awards on ASAP noontime show recently.
The first recognition is a Gold Record for their 10th album Pogi Years Old which includes the hits “Lagi Mong Tatandaan,” “Sing,” (a collab with Rico Blanco) among others. The second award is a Platinum Record for Bente a compilation album featuring all their chartbusting singles that have dominated the airwaves over the years, which also includes two new songs.
The awards were presented to the band by Universal Records’ General Manager Kathleen Dy Go, immediately after they were given a tribute by ASAP featuring performances of Parokya’s hits by Philippines’ top OPM Acts Gary V, Elmo and Arkin Magalona, Sarah Geronimo, Daniel Padilla, Angeline Quinto, KZ Tandingan, Darren Espanto, Kyle Echarri, Kean Cipriano and Ney Dimaculangan on a special segment called ASAP Pinoy.
