Raki Vega is a filipina singer, which was declared grand prize winner of ABS CBN’s “Born Diva” reality-TV show, earning the title “Ultimate Born Diva.”
Raki is not afraid to admit that after “Born Diva,” her career progressed in a slow pace. But she kept on the faith and pressed on, typical of Raki, who has always been one bundle of determination. In 2008, the breaks came pouring in like a much-awaited rain. Raki signed up with Star Records and was picked by the label to be its bet at the ASEAN IKON Philippines competition.
Among her other projects were the theme song of ABS CBN’s hit series “Lobo” as well as two tracks of TV host Boy Abunda’s “Love Life” album. Raki was also grand finalist in the 2008 World Championships of Performing Arts (WCOPA) in Hollywood where she joined the likes of Jed Madela, the Cercado Sisters, Reymond Sajor and Aria Clemente who all won major titles. She also became the endorser of Clara International beauty products. Raki is now being managed by STAGES.
After her big win at the 2009 Awit Awards in Best Performance by a New Female Recording Artist, Raki and her management company are currently in negotiations for more definitive projects this 2010.
Raki said, “My motto in life is Carpe Diem (‘seize the day’). Never let an opportunity pass. Never stop dreaming. Love your craft and offer everything to God.”
