Listening to her tracks got us thinking: while there have been several attempts by models to become singers, how many would we characterize as successful? Well, here's someone who seems to be on her way to that.
If her good looks got all of you mesmerized then her brilliant singing skills may surprise you. Lana Roi is a model and a singer who's been in the public eye as a former pageant title holder since 2009, but now the half-German half-Filipina beauty offers something new. Although her singing career kicked off when she joined the girl group Eurasia, her first ever solo album entitled "Inner Base" has just been released!
As the album marks a fresh new start of her singing career, it certainly has something for everyone. Lana offers songs that has an eclectic mix of urban songs, pop ballads and dance inducing knockouts.
The album has ten tracks in it, all of which are written by her. "The melody comes and the lyrics just flow with it," she says when asked how she writes her songs. But the album also features two songs co-written by the Filipino-American hip hop recording duo, Q-York.
She credits music as her first love saying, "Music has always been my passion. I've been singing since probably I was nine years old. That's the first time I ever stepped foot on a stage. I've always been surrounded by music."
This talented sweetheart is influenced by superstar J.Lo, singer-songwriter Alicia Keys, country singer Shania Twain and pop diva Beyonce, but one wouldn't fail to notice that the way she performs is very a la Nicole Scherzinger.
The singer, dancer, model, host aims not only to entertain but she also wants to make a huge difference with the her God-given talents. Lana reveals the charitable side of her as part of the proceeds of her album will go to the End Polio Now campaign, it's Rotary International's flight to end polio.
