‘Suklay Diva’ Katrina Velarde first became viral because of her amazing impersonations of international and local music icons.
Aside from her powerful vocals, her comedic side also comes out when filming her videos. Now, she’s already making a name for herself and not as other popular artists.
One of her latest viral videos is a ‘One Sweet Day’ cover with Bugoy Drilon, Daryl Ong, and Michael Pangilinan. It already has more than seven million views on Youtube.
After signing with Viva, Katrina is currently busy with her shows and gigs. She recently recorded her new single ‘Kung Naging Tayong Dalawa’ with musical geniuses Yumi Lacsamana and Thyro Alfaro.
Last weekend, she met one of her musical influences, Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez and she couldn’t hide her happiness.
