    Heart to Heart with Kyla
    By Baby A. Gil
    December 03, 2008

    Kyla has been singing for almost 10 years now. She is now on her seventh album. But she still feels she needs to accomplish more. “I want to have a triple or even a quadruple Platinum album,” she muses. Given her good sales performance, that can happen anytime. But then not that I think she needs to. As the local R&B princess, she is already a consistent hitmaker. Examples are Hanggang Ngayon, I Don’t Want You to Go and Ngayong Wala Ka Na.

    Besides, I think it is already remarkable that she is one of the few girls in local showbusiness who has managed to steer free of gossip columns or has ever been in some sort of scandal. She has supportive parents and siblings who can also sing but prefer to pursue their own careers. She has been in a serious relationship with a basketball star boyfriend for three years now. Rich Alvarez is also very supportive but like her family, he also keeps things low-profile.

    The only times Kyla gets into the news is when she sings, like now with the release of a new album, Heart to Heart. “This is something new to me. After releasing six albums that truly helped me grow artistically and professionally, I wanted to do something on my seventh album that I could be more proud of not just being a singer but a professional artist in all aspects. It was a great experience.”

    There are three originals in the CD. Two of them, Back in Time and You Make Me Feel were co-written by Kyla with Jay-R. The other one is Tahan Na by Toto Sorioso. Hopefully one, or all of them will become hits and give her a multi-platinum award. For now though, what is sure to go big with local buyers are the covers.

    Her sixth album, the gold-selling Heartfelt, which came out a year ago was also mostly made up of covers. One, in fact, the Taylor Dayne classic Love Will Lead You Back became one of Kyla’s biggest hits. Listeners also raved about her rendition of the standard Over the Rainbow, which was known as her competition song when she was starting out.

    That a lot of people enjoy hearing her sing is no surprise. Kyla is thankfully one of those artists who has early on developed her own style and has a distinctive, easily recognizable voice. She has never been afflicted with the plakang-plaka syndrome. So she is able to take these old songs and make them her own.

    Lead cut is the title song, Heart to Heart, a Kenny Loggins hit in the ‘80s. Others are I Miss You by Klymaxx; Old Friend by Phyllis Hyman; Love on a Two Way Street by Smokey Robinson; I’ll Never Give Up by Amy Holland; Stay Awake by Ronnie Laws; I’ll be Over You by Toto; Drive by Cars; I Can’t Tell You Why by The Eagles; Misty Glass Window by Artstart; Bus Stop by The Hollies; Ribbon in The Sky by Stevie Wonder; and as a bonus track, David Foster’s My Grown Up Christmas List which had been recorded by Natalie Cole, Amy Grant, Michael Bublé and others.

    She says, “I hope everyone will listen to every song and sing it from the heart like I do.” Well done, Kyla.

    Essence of Soul documents Kyla's greatest hits
    Bong Godinez
    Friday, July 30, 2010
    04:07 PM

    Eight platinum albums along with numerous hits earn R&B Princess Kyla the right to release an anthology album of her own.

    Essence of Soul gathers the 28-year-old singer's well-loved singles in a two-disc collection produced and distributed by PolyEast Records.

    Tracks included in the record are "Hanggang Ngayon," "Nasaan Ka Na," "Back In Time," "Beautiful Days," "I Feel For You," "Not Your Ordinary Girl," along with renditions of "Because Of You," "Old Friend," "One Day In Your Life," "I'll Be Over You," "If The Feeling Is Gone," "It's Over Now," "Love Will Lead You Back," and "Human Nature," among others.

    Kyla has released eight records all in all: Way To Your Heart (2001), Kyla (2002), I Will Be There (2003), Not Your Ordinary Girl (2004), Let The Love Begin (2005), Beautiful Days (2006), Heartfelt (2007), and Heart 2 Heart (2008).

    Incidentally, the release of Essence of Soul coincides with Kyla's tenth anniversary in the entertainment business.

    "What this retrospective album shows is that over the last 10 years, she has used her warm voice with subtlety and to excellent effect. Kyla has always created music for the people. Great melodies, simple lyrics and groovy sounds are all part of what makes Kyla still a star. This album is a record to listen to and a record of our times and for this generation—that in our midst, Kyla became one of the few who made it for a decade and more decades to come," PolyEast Records said in a statement.

    The album also features a new song titled, "Hanggang Wakas." Kyla recorded the tune together with Malaysian pop-R&B artist Hazami. Arnie Mendaros translated the song (titled "Tekad" in Bahasa) in Filipino.

    Essence of Soul will serve as a pleasant prelude to Kyla's upcoming all-original album scheduled to be launched late this year.

    Kyla's Essence of Soul is now available at record bars nationwide.

    Kyla in a private affair
    By Baby A. Gil

    2010 was a good year for Kyla. The local R&B Princess had a big hit with Back In Time, a duet with Jay-R. She celebrated her first 10 years in the music business with the release of Essence Of Soul, a compilation of her 27 biggest sellers. And then to cap things off, she ended the year with a bang. Kyla did not really make so much noise in the literal sense. Think fireworks or firecrackers or maybe some media controversy. That is not her style. What she made was good music, the light and soulful kind she enjoys doing. And those that she did for her latest album Private Affair are signs that all is not lost for the future of Filipino music.

    This is because after a long period when she was recording mostly covers of old favorites, Private Affair is made up almost entirely of original compositions. This is a big risk nowadays given the tepid market for OPM tunes. But when you have somebody of Kyla’s stature willing to put her career on the line for the music, then the CD is really a dream come true. The sole departure from the theme is her cover of How Deep Is Your Love by the Bee Gees. The song made the cut because it is one of Kyla’s long-time favorites and she had always dreamed of one day recording her own version. Beside from that, the CD is a virtual feast of OPM that might hopefully become classics.

    Private in the case of Kyla’s new album also means personal because it provided an opportunity for Kyla to work with people she loves. For one there is A Song For The Love In Summer. This original with the sweet, romantic title was a song that Kyla’s father, Ulysis Calumpad, who was a musician in his youth, composed to woo her mother. It is obvious that the song worked. But after it had done its job, it was just left lying around with old papers, forgotten for almost 30 years. That is until somebody remembered the song and told Kyla about it. She was of course, very happy about being able to record the truly special composition.

    Then there is also the smooth R&B tune, Don’t Tie Me Down which appears twice in the CD. The second track is a laid-back house mix version. Kyla co-produced and co-wrote this cut with her good friends, Jay-R, Billy Crawford, Kris Lawrence and Jimmy Muna. This is a sign that she is learning things about the business of production in the studio and taking more control over her material. I will not be surprised if she will write and produce more cuts in her coming albums.

    The public’s enthusiastic response to the album’s first single, Mahal Kita (Di Mo Pansin,) shows that there will surely be chances for Kyla to do more writing and producing soon. Composed by Francis Louis Salazar, the song has become a big radio favorite. The video directed by Treb Monteras, which shows a glamorous Kyla in period costumes and make-up, is now also a big hit in the MYX music channel where it is No. 3 in the Pinoy MYX Countdown.

    It is great to see Kyla open the year with a hit song and hopefully, she will have more before 2011 is over. The other possible sellers in the album are Listen, Dagli Na Lang, Private Affair, Camouflage, It’s All About Us and Keep The Faith.

    Meanwhile, here are the first hit videos of the year as tabulated by the Pinoy MYX Countdown: Sino Nga Ba Siya? the latest single by Sarah Geronimo; Liwanag by Callalily; Mahal Kita (Di Mo Pansin) by Kyla; You Don’t Know by Regine Velasquez; Song For the Suspect by Franco; Lagi by Kiss Jane; Kahit May Mahal Ka Nang Iba by Mark Bautista; Lumapit by Archipelago; What’s Your Poison by Chicosci; Naked by Salamin.

    Ang Huling Yakap Ng Mundo by Imago; Hanging Habagat by Champ; Today I’ll See The Sun by Frencheska Farr; Paasa by All For Patricia; Going Nowhere by Hilera; Sa Silid by SLEX; Naaalala Ka by Jericho Rosales; Fly With Me by Duncan Ramos; Xanadu by Rachel Alejandro; and Watchin’ Me by Hi-C.

    Singer Kyla is now engaged to PBA player Rich Alvarez
    PEP - Friday, February 11

    Labis ang kasiyahan ng R&B Princess na si Kyla matapos niyang aminin sa interview ng Tweetbiz ngayong gabi, February 10, na engaged na sila ng basketball player at long-time boyfriend niyang si Rich Alvarez.

    Last week daw naganap sa isang hotel ang pagpo-propose ni Rich kay Kyla.

    "Umiyak ako nang bonggang-bongga kasi hindi ko talaga ine-expect," sabi ni Kyla.

    Nasorpresa raw talaga siya dahil akala niya ay magdi-dinner lang sila sa pinuntahan nilang hotel. Nagulat na lang siya nang makita ang mga pamilya nila ni Rich doon. At naganap na nga ang proposal.

    Kailan naman ang kasal?

    "Wala pang date ang kasal kasi kaka-engage ko pa lang," ani Kyla.

    Bagamat wala pang eksaktong araw ng kasal ay sigurado naman daw na ngayong taon ito magaganap.

    Sa bahay daw na ipinapagawa ni Rich sila titira after ng wedding.

    Parehong 30 years old sina Kyla at Rich.

    WISH COME TRUE. Bago ang pag-aming ito, tila ang pagpo-propose niRich ang hinihintay ni Kyla na mangyari.

    Sa phone patch interview nga ng Tweetbiz kay Kyla noong January 5, na nagkataong birthday mismo ng singer, sinabi niya na ang best birthday gift daw sa kanya ay kung magpo-propose ng kasal si Rich. Although ayaw naman daw niyang i-pressure ang kanyang boyfriend.

    Sigurado na raw kasi si Kyla na si Rich na ang gusto niyang pakasalan after ng kanilang limang taong relasyon.

    Sinabi pa ng singer na okay lang sa kanya kung this year magaganap ang wedding nila. Sa tingin naman niya ay ready na silang dalawa ni Rich.

    One month after nga ay nakamit na rin ni Kyla ang kanyang birthday wish.

Like most fans (and even the artists themselves) Kyla starts out wondering what kind of musical adventure they are about to embark upon. She talks about her carrier single “Mahal Kita,” and how she feels most of her bands will be able to relate with the romantic theme. Watch her video and get more of the famous Kyla on Coca-Cola Music Studio.
