'It's important that you speak up': Morissette scores People's Choice win after gig issue

MANILA, Philippines — Morissette still has the people's trust after she won the fan-voted People's Choice at the inaugural Billboard Philippines Women in Music last Friday in Samsung Hall, SM Aura Premier in Taguig City. 

Prior to the event, Morissette confided to select media, including, at the blue carpet that she was just inspired to attend the first-ever Women in Music awards in the country. 

Later on that night, she won the category, which also saw a list of accomplished women nominees, including Armi Millare, Nadine Lustre, Yeng Constantino, KZ Tandingan and Barbie Almalbis, whom she complimented for the latter's electrifying production number. 

"Well, you know, it happens," she said to the press at the blue carpet. "Nagkakasakit tayo and then people don't understand the full story, but I decided to speak up kasi medyo lumalaki na siya," she said. 

Morissette addressed the issue earlier in March after an events director alleged that she had a lackluster performance during a corporate event. She posted her side on a series of Instagram stories.

Morissette further talked about her challenges during her acceptance speech. 

"With new goals, come a new mindset and one of the things that I've learned is that I think we all deserve to celebrate more our little wins. I think for me, being able to hold this, being able to be in this stage pursuing music is a personal win."

"And many people will try to bring you down but just along as you have those, I guess little embers of inspiration, hope and motivation, your passion will continue to burn brighter," the singer said. 

Apart from her, the 1st Women in Music awards also honored some of
