The winners of the 11th Star Awards for Music were honored by the Philippine Movie Press Club (PMPC) during its awarding ceremony held last night, January 23, 2020.
The star-studded event was held at the SM North Skydome in Quezon City.
Regine Velasquez cried as she gave her acceptance speech for being the recipient of the Pilita Corrales Lifetime Achievement Award.
"First time kong naka-receive ng Lifetime Achievement Award. Ibig sabihin ba nito matanda na ako? Naiiyak ako, hindi ko alam kung bakit. Iniiaalay ko ito kay Mang Gerry. I love you, tatay," she said about her father who passed away in February 2014.
"Nami-miss ko siya pero may pumalit naman sa kanya dahil andiyan ang asawa ko na nagte-train sa akin pag may concert ako," the wife of Ogie Alcasid said gratefully.
It will be recalled that Regine received the Lifetime Achievement Award during the MOR Pinoy Music Awards held in July 2019.
Morissette Amon personally accepted her award for the Female Concert of the Year category.
"Salamat sa PMPC for this award," she said. "The first award that I received was from PMPC as the New Female Artist of the Year.
"Very memorable yung venue na ito kasi dito din ako nag-perform noong sumali ako sa Talentadong Pinoy," recalled Morissette, referring to TV5's now defunct reality talent competition.
