When a rising star hails from a showbiz family, it's often difficult for them to build a rep apart from their famous clan. But 20-year-old Zia Quizon--daughter of Comedy King Dolphy and Divine Diva Zsa Zsa Padilla, and younger sister of Karylle--has managed to make a name for herself through her sheer talent as a singer, musician, and songwriter.
After releasing her self-titled debut album just last year, Zia's career has already reached incredible heights, from being a featured artist on ASAP Rocks' Acoustic Republic to winning the MYX Music Award 2012 for Favorite New Artist. Her sultry voice and jazz vibe make her stand out from other young female stars on the airwaves today, and her music videos show off an artistic and charming side to this singing sensation.
