WITH HER SINGING PROWESS, Filipina singer-actress Rita Daniela is continuously gaining attention both locally and abroad.
Rita was handpicked by Korean singer-songwriter Marucci to collaborate with his song, ‘Superman,’ which they performed live in front of the Philippine press earlier today in Quezon City. The song, as told to the press was inspired by one person-in-need but remains strong to fight against a disease. Proceeds of the song will be given to the said person back in Korea.
Given with an option to select a Filipina singer from a list of local artists, Marucci picked Rita, the Korean artist told the press during today’s launch of AXM (Alexander x Marucci) in the Philippines. AXM is Marucci’s newly-formed collaboration with Korean singer-actor Alexander Lee, a former member of Korean band U-Kiss. He was first seen on Philippine TV as Heart Evangelista’s ‘My Korean Jagiya’ earlier this year.
While Rita’s talent is seen to be with international caliber, she is also given a local spotlight. The singer is about to star in a theatre musical featuring Apo Hiking Society songs this coming August. Rita plays the role of Ana, one of the leads opposite singer Mark Bautista in the musical comedy ‘Eto Na! Musikal nAPO!’
