Pussycat Dolls lead singer is proudly Pinay
I'd like to share this article regarding the lead singer of the Pussycat Dolls.
She's lead vocalist of The Pussycat Dolls. And she's proud of her Filipino roots. Sultry, outspoken Nicole Scherzinger was born in Hawaii, but traces her roots to Batanes Islands.
In a recent interview with MYX in Bangkok, Nicole says she's a Lea Salonga fan and grew up listening to the music of the Tony award-winning performer. Nicole adds that although she has never been to the Philippines, she'd love to visit the country and "be around people that kinda look like me." Her pride in being Filipina stems from the fact that just like her family, Nicole thinks Filipinos have a lot of heart. In fact,
Nicole, has taken it upon herself to represent the Filipinos in the States, where she grew up. Aside from Nicole, other members of the song-and-dance group are Jessica Sutta, one-time captain of the Miami Heat dance troupe; Carmi Bachar, the La Vida Loca girl on Ricky Martin's world tour; Hollywood dancers Ashley Roberts and Kimberly Wyatt and; stunning singer Meloy Thornton.
The Pussycat Dolls have just released their debut album under MCA Music. Their album boasts of two chartbusters, the carrier track Don't Cha dominated the radio charts for months and the sophomore
outing Stick with U is also doing well.
