Aiza Seguerra

Aiza Seguerra (born 17 September 1983) is a Filipino actress, singer and guitarist. She traces her roots from Calauag, Quezon.


Aiza started out as a contestant in Eat Bulaga!'s Little Miss Philippines 1987 and later a child star. After a few years of acting and a string of movies under her belt, her appeal as a child star lessened. She later made a comeback with her single, Pagdating ng Panahon (When the Time Comes). She is openly lesbian.

Seguerra's new 10-track album features revivals of old hits - "Open Arms," "Time After Time," "Somewhere Over The Rainbow," "At Last," "Vincent," "Smooth Operator," "Home," "Journey," and "Longer." Aiza had also performed in Singapore for the Singapore Repertory Theatre presentation of the stage play "Avenue Q."


Biography


Cariza Yamson Seguerra better known as Aiza Seguerra is the only daughter of Mr. Decoroso "Dick" Seguerra and Mrs. Caridad "Caring" Yamson-Seguerra. She first dazzled the viewing public as a cute three-year-old contestant of Eat Bulaga!'s Little Miss Philippines. Her natural charm also worked on Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto , and Joey de Leon , such that she became part of the long-running show from 1987 to 1997. And that was the beginning of her long career as a child superstar.


Aiza may be inches away from being a five footer, but her zest for life is taller than anyone can imagine. An example to this is how she handled herself when her popularity as a child co-host of Eat Bulaga slowly faded as she grew older. When she was given a break in the said noontime variety show, she became a phenomenon. Her duck walk was imitated nationwide by kids and her famous vow, the word she uttered after telling the tele-viewers the title of the poem she was to recite that day became a common expression for years.


She has appeared in more than 30 movies and TV shows to date. As a child star, she often got the cute roles and was selected as Vic Sotto ???s daughter in countless movies. She was Enteng Kabisote???s charming daughter. She portrayed the role of Aiza Kabisote from 1987 to 2007. These movies gave her the chance to work with such excellent actors as Roderick Paulate, Maricel Soriano, Gary Valenciano and the late Charito Solis.


As with most child stars, Aiza struggled to continue her success in her teenage years.She only appeared in six movies for Regal Films. One unusual interest of Aiza's as she was growing up was sharpshooting! She became quite an expert at it. At 14 she competed in Bong Revilla's Invitational Shootfest '98, and has won several awards in the sport.


Seguerra studied in Operation Brotherhood Montessori Center and she later enrolled at the College of Fine Arts and Design of the University of Sto. Tomas and acquired a college degree.


Aiza reinvented herself in her twenties by showing her talent in music. She sings and plays the guitar. Her single became a major hit that year and enabled her to start a new career. She has finally erased the public???s image of her child star days and replaced it with a better picture of a well-rounded performing artist. She is now dubbed as the "Asian Acoustic Sensation".
