Beautiful Music: Kyla
Kyla began her singing career when at 14 she joined a band that performed nightly in a five-star hotel lounge. Her love for music began even earlier when as a child, her parents made her listen to musical geniuses like Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra and Aretha Franklin. She grew up listening to jazz music. But as she grew older, the music around her evolved and she was able to expand her repertoire to include the music of Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Brandy, Beyonce and other powerful black singers who are widely known for their R&B music.
In 1993, she won the grand prize in the popular Tanghalan Ng Kampeon. After joining several other singing competitions, Kyla was signed to EMI Philippines and immediately released her debut album, "Way to Your Heart."
Kyla has since released a string of albums that contained superb hits. She has also won awards from MTV Pilipinas, Awit Awards, Metropop and Himig Handog. She is seen regularly at the Sunday noontime show S.O.P. where she wows the viewers with her breezy vocal style. ~ Source: Maxi-Media International
