Soulfully Heartfelt...KYLA..part V

Kyla is the ultimate R&B princess; she is R&B and was tagged R&B when R&B really meant rhythm and blues. That was a time when R&B meant you have a powerful yet soulful voice. Today, R&B singers are like pre-paid card centers. They are everywhere, convenient and soooooooooo affordable. They come in different features and values. But you know that only the real ones, like Kyla will last forever.

There is definitely more to Kyla than not just being an ordinary girl. She is now a woman in every sense of the word….as evidenced in her sixth album titled Heartfelt. Here she shares a side no one has ever seen or heard before…more sultry, more alluring, more soulful (yes, it’s possible), and yes…more heartfelt.

Soul 2 Soul – First, let’s get things out of the way. Everyone knows Kyla’s real name is Melanie Hernandez Calumpad (she was christened Kyla by EMI’s Francis Guevarra when a recording demo for a Metropop song landed on his lap by fate) and everyone knows she passed through the amateur singing contest route to gain fame (from Tanghalan ng Kampeon to Yamaha Music Quest to Metropop Young Singers Competition). Heck, everyone knows she was even part of the afternoon variety show That’s Entertainment (Tuesday group).

But not many know that Kyla is a true-blue-dye-in-the-wool soul singer. Growing up, Kyla was listening to Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Aretha Franklin. It was through these soul legends that Kyla developed her knack for singing. And even before Beyonce heard of Dreamgirls, Kyla was fulfilling her dreams as evidenced in Tanghalan ng Kampeon winning moment which was her powerful interpretation of I Am Changing.

Kyla is Changing – Listening to Kyla’s discography, you would know that she has definitely developed from a simple girl with a great voice to an earthly and soulful woman with powerful pipes and commanding stage presence. She was compared to then teen sensations Brandy and Aaliyah when she was starting out. But now, her range has become wider, making her one of the more versatile and stronger performers in the country…. More now like her other idols Toni Braxton, Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, and Whitney Houston. Not bad for a woman who’s a whole lot younger than them.

Admit it, you think of those women when you think of soul. And admitting Kyla is in that list is certainly not far-off.

Soul Awards – It’s not surprising that because of her talent, Kyla is one of the most awarded singers in the country. Her winning streak as a professional singer started with her breakthrough single, Hanggang Ngayon. Besides topping the radio charts and boosting sales of her debut album, the song’s music video (directed by Lyle Sacris) brought home the 2001 MTV Pilipinas Awards Best New Artist and Video of the Year awards for Kyla. The video went on to win the MTV Southeast Asia Video Music Award, beating out entries from Indonesia, Malaysia and other countries. Kyla even has six Awit Awards and earned a roomful of trophies given by various radio stations and magazines that range from Best Female Singer to Breakthrough Artist of the Year. Of course, one cannot discount the numerous Gold and Platinum awards Kyla has received for her albums.

As a result of Kyla shining on her own, a lot of the world’s premier artists were invited to collaborate with the R&B singer. From Freestyle to Gary Valenciano to Keith Martin and Blue and Fralippo Lippi, Kyla can certainly step it up and perform side-by-side with the best.

Soul Revivals – Kyla’s sixth album Heartfelt (released by EMI-Philippines) is a compilation of revivals of well-known songs. Many of them are pop classics sprinkled with the Kyla touch – meaning sultry and of course, soulful. Lani Hall’s I Don’t Want You To Go, Taylor Dayne’s Love Will Lead You Back, James Ingram’s I Don’t Have The Heart, Luther Vandross’ Always and Forever, Joey Albert’s It’s Over Now, among others are given a modern twist with Kyla’s stylings.

Even contemporary songs such as Brandy’s Brokenhearted, Allure’s Last Chance, Celine Dion’s With This Tear etc. are given a fresh feel by Kyla. And of course, another stand-out track is Over The Rainbow – yes, that classic song written and originally sung by Judy Garland and Patti Labelle.

It can be remembered that through this song, Kyla showed her vocal range in a showdown with her contemporaries at the Regine Velasquez’s Reigning Still concert at the Araneta Coliseum. It was even cited in Wikipedia that with her spectacular performance of Over the Rainbow, Kyla ended up winning the audience approval as “the heir to popular artist Regine Velasquez.”

While a lot of singers have done their own version of this immortal song, from Patti La Belle to Aretha Franklin, Kyla certainly made this song her own with a cool and contemporary arrangement of the song without losing the original’s magic.
The album is definitely a must for music lovers as each track is magical. The album illustrates the immense talent of Kyla. The album showcases Kyla’s maturity as a singer as evidenced in her voice that creates a largely up-tempo, thrillingly melodramtic set that takes different views of matters of the heart. The re-arrangements of the songs echo the feverish passion of Kyla.

Kyla is definitely no an ordinary girl. She’s a singer, host (Popstar Kids in QTV and SOP in GMA), song-writer, concert performer, R&B princess, music video artist and a whole lot more. And with the release of Heartfelt, she can definitely be called something that has eluded her throughout her years in the business. With a newfound maturity, not only through her voice but even in her look, Kyla can definitely now be called a WOMAN.
