Leading the winners from Star Music is the Himig Handog 2019 album, which won Album of the Year and Compilation Album of the Year.

At sa lahat ng mga singers, interpreters na nagbigay ng kanilang talento upang bigyang buhay ang mga napakagagandang awitin sa Himig Handog 2019. Muli maraming, maraming salamat sa PMPC Star Awards for Music sa walang sawa niyong pagsuporta sa ating local music industry. Mabuhay ang musikang Pilipino and to God be the Glory,” he said in the awarding ceremony that was shown online last October 10.

Another big winner that night was a track from Himig Handog 2019, which is “Mabagal” by Daniel Padilla and Moira Dela Torre.
