Aiza Seguerra

Cariza Yamson Seguerra better known as Aiza Seguerra 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.

Aiza won the The Singing Bee on July 8, 2008 after Rachel Alejandro gave up her throne as defending champion due to other engagements. She defeated her co-contestant singer Bituin Escalante. Seguerra won P 1,040,000 for a second time on July 10, raising her total winnings now to P 2,080,000. 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.”

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.

Seguerra studied in Operation Brotherhood Montessori Center and she later enrolled at the College of Fine Arts and Design of the University of Santo 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”.
