Former award-winning child actress Isabelle de Leon is all grown up! Now, she has added the title "singer/songwriter" to her resume with the release of her debut album "LoveZone".
Last night at the Eastwood Central Plaza, fans witnessed Isabelle perform the songs from the album live. Backed up by a band which included her brother on bass, the 18-year-old also did covers from Paramore and Katy Perry.
"Music has always been a part of me as a kid. it has kept me going. I write songs to tell stories, I sing becauseI want to share it," said de Leon.

The "artist formerly known as Duday" is poised to be the next big thing in OPM.
She is out to prove herself as an artist with an album that has as much substance as her colorful young life experiences, formidable songwriting chops and prodigious skill with her instruments (she plays the guitar, bass, drums, piano and harmonica).
Isabelle brings together two things that are essential in an artist--- the ability to relate to people's daily lives and the power to express emotions in new powerful ways.
"I want to sing songs I have a real connection to. Songs that have moved me or those who'll be listening to my music... be it love in all its grandeur or love lost. Isn't it a relief when you hear songs that say exactly what you feel?"
