Hitmaker awardee Moira dela Torre put on a heartwrenching performance of her hit song “Before It Sinks In” at the first ever Billboard Philippines Women in Music Awards held at the Samsung Hall, SM Aura last March 22.

The song is off her 2018 album Malaya (Free). The record has been certified platinum eight times. Her best friend and social media icon Mimiyuuuh presented her the award during the ceremony. In her tearjerking speech, she dedicated the award to her single mother.

“Who would have thought the songs I wrote as an outlet would resonate with so many people? You make me so brave, Mama. I get to do all of this because you first did it for me. So, Mom, this one’s for you,” she said as she held back tears. Check out dela Torre’s full acceptance speech here.
