    When one's asked to describe Miss Sitti Navarro, those who know her very well will often reply with the question "Where do I start?". It's not because it's hard to describe her, but because there are so many different ways and there are so many talents that this well rounded person possesses.

Her High School days seem to be a breeze as she was both the editor - in chief of their school's paper and Valedictorian winning of numerous awards most notably the Gloria Macapagal - Arroyo Award, The Gerry A.

    Her singing talents have not gone unnoticed. In 2004, MTV Philippines started the "SUPAHSTAR D' SUPER SEARCH", where the elite and renowned panel of judges voted her as one of the winners.

    About Me:
    i'm usually reserved, mahinhin daw, multitasker (i guess), tend to be deep in thought sometimes that i unintentionally fail to greet people who say hello, very forgetful when it comes to remembering names, can be quite corny, loves to laugh a lot, super bad at finance but i love my econ teachers (they're the best!), love riding the mrt and just watching people. after graduating last year i'm just taking my time and concentrating my efforts in singing - i love singing, its my remedy.. im happiest when im on stage and just singing my heart out. i hope my recently released album would have an impact on people, that more Filipinos will be aware of bossa nova and jazz and just how free and wonderful those musical genres are. i love smiling and being happy and thinking of positive things and reflecting. i hope and pray that Father God will delight in me =)

    hope everyone could grab a copy of my album entitled Cafe Bossa, released under Warner Music, out now at all record bars =)

    I attended a wedding last year where Sitti and her band provided the music during the reception. She looked so different from the pics posted in this thread (especially the one in the second post. It looks a like a different person altogether. Must be the make-up.) I became a fan of bossa nova after that wedding.
