The ASOP (A Song of Praise) Music Festival is an annual music festival held in Manila, Philippines. Basically a national songwriting competition,[1] it is the only gospel music television program in the country.[2] An original concept of Eliseo Soriano and Daniel Razon aiming to bring back praise songs to the public, it started in 2004 as a music competition inside the Members Church of God International but was later opened to the general public in 2011.[3] The music festival also discourages rap and metal music entries.

The program airs weekly on UNTV every Sunday night holding weekly and monthly eliminations. The show is hosted by Toni Rose Gayda and balladeer Richard Reynoso.[4] Grand Finals are held in Smart Araneta Coliseum, Quezon City, Philippines. Since 2015, entries that won from the monthly eliminations of November of the current year to October of the following year are included in the Grand Finals Night.

On its third year, the multi-awarded Filipino actor and film director, Cesar Montano joined the competition with his composition entitled Pagpupuring Walang Hanggan(Eternal Praise).

ASOP Music Festival was crowned the Best Talent Search Program of the 29th PMPC Star Awards for Television. As announced by Daniel Razon om the Year 7 Grand Finals, starting Year 8, the cash prize will be ₱800,000 for the champion, and a yearly increment of ₱100,000 will be added to the grand prize.
