While Amazon Music offers some "free" access via Prime subscriptions in Prime Music, for the full 60 million songs you'll need to take out a proper Amazon Music subscription - Amazon Music Unlimited. Prime Music only has a catalogue of 2 million. The Unlimited family account gives you 6 members and each user gets an individual account; each member needs to be at least 13 years old to have an Amazon account, so it's different to other Amazon Household accounts - like Kindle.
A regular individual subscription is Php 150, there are also other subscription options though, including one for use on an Echo device.
You can upload music to Amazon Music Unlimited and music you purchase from Amazon - including AutoRip tracks - are included. Amazon Music Unlimited can also be "cast" to Echo devices on the same network using Alexa Cast.
There is explicit lyric filtering available and you'll have to enable this on each individual device, but there's no PIN protection so can easily be turned off.
