Granddaughter of Philippine National Artist for Music, Andrea O. Veneracion, and a select scholar of Imelda Marcos and the Cultural Center of the Philippines, Emmanuelle Adda continued to hone her talents in New York city at one of the top conservatories for art. Since then, she has starred in stage shows and revues including Les Miserables, Miss Saigon and West Side Story. She won the prestigious IDEA international award representing her country in Hong Kong and was also featured alongside the world renowned Philippine Madrigal Singers in the Cultural Center of the Philippines. Inspired by legends such as Nat King Cole, Etta James and Edith Piaf, Emmanuelle has had the pleasure of paying tribute to them, sharing the stage with the likes of Grammy Award winning artist Sting, Chris Botti, Serena Williams, Manny Paquiao, the Atlantic Symphony Orchestra, the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra, and the President of the Philippines. Emmanuelle has since been elected Ambassador for the sports brand Under Armour, featured on the cover of Runner and Shape magazine, starred as the lead voice in Disney’s movie, Princess and the Frog in South East Asia, and chosen to perform for the Department of Foreign affairs and APEC. She is now touring the world in concert for international audiences of all demographics. Her dynamic energy and engaging performance is sure to leave the crowd in stitches, tears and on their feet asking for more. Emmanuelle looks forward to sharing an evening of music with you soon. “I believe that art is not merely about creating something ‘pretty’. It is a means to communicate- to touch people; and it is as much about the listener as it is about the one who speaks. And so, when I step foot on stage, I intend to have a conversation. We can be strangers, worlds apart; but we hear this tune… we share this rhythm… And we’re in the exact same place!”
