It looks like boy and girl groups are coming back with a bang this year, and there’s a new kid in town! Last week, noontime show ASAP introduced their newest girl squad, BFF5! Pronounced “BFFs,” the group is comprised of the freshest and most talented faces in music today: Ylona Garcia, Maris Racal, Loisa Andalio, Andrea Brilliantes, and Kira Balinger.
Check out their debut performance of “Sit Still Look Pretty” HERE!
While Ylona, Loisa, and Maris all got their start on reality television show Pinoy Big Brother, all three have grown into the spotlight in their own different ways. Last year, Ylona Garcia proved she was as talented as they can get as she starred in On the Wings of Love as Audrey Olivar, and released her debut album, “My Name Is Ylona Garcia,” which included original songs she wrote herself.
Loisa Andalio and Maris Racal, on the other hand, became close friends after joining PBB and girl group Girltrends. Both have also starred in various films and television series, and last year started gaining attention for their song covers posted to social media. In October, the pair, also called LoiRis, performed in their own digital concert on One Music PH called “Double Hearts” alongside Sue Ramirez and Kristel Fulgar.
At a young age, Andrea Brillantes already proved her talent as she starred in sketch comedy show Goin’ Bulilit. Since then, she’s been cast in main roles for television series’ like “Annaliza,” as well as roles in films like “Crazy Beautiful You” and “Everyday I Love You.” She’s also branched out into music with her latest single, “Happy To Be Me,” and is widely considered to be the Philippines’ own “Musical.ly Queen.”
Kira Balinger might have grown up in the United Kingdom, but its here in the Philippines that her star truly shone. She first got her big break on television series “The Story of Us,” in 2016, and now stars in “The Greatest Love,” alongside Joshua Garcia. She currently hosts ASAP Chillout, and is known to perform on the show as well as on short cover videos posted to her Instagram account.
