Daniel Padilla and Moira dela Torre bagged the grand prize for "Mabagal" at the recently concluded Himig Handog 2019. In an interview with Daniel following the grand finals on ASAP on Sunday, October 13, the singer-actor dedicated his win to the fans who love their song.
"Siyempre ano naman 'yun lahat 'yun sa mga sumporta ng song and we just did our parts and siguro we just shared something different from now na music and siguro na-enjoy nila 'yun," Daniel stated.
"Mabagal" also won all of the minor awards including MOR Philippines' Choice Awards, MYX Choice for Best Music Video, One Music PH's Choice for Favorite Interpreter, Star Music's Choice Award for Best Produced Track and Listener's Choice for Most Streamed Track.
Daniel said that "Mabagal" is the genre of music he is really interested performing. "It's timeless and standard music is timeless and I think it's time para magparinig tayo ulit ng ganong kanta," he said.
Asked if he wants to join "Himig Handog" again next year, Daniel replied, "It depends kasi pumayag lang ako dito dahil gusto ko 'yung kanta niya kasi wala naman akong lakas ng loob na maggaganito ulit eh. After five years sumali lang ako dito dahil comfortable ako don sa kanta niya. Next year tingnan natin."
