In the dedication page of her debut album Bea Alonzo, The Real Me, the I Love Betty La Fea star admitted that she has always wanted to demonstrate her vocal skills.

"It has always been my frustration to be a singer," writes Bea Alonzo in her album. "But growing up after being a fan of Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, and Regine Velasquez, I thought to myself, I can never be a singer. But thanks to my Star Records family especially to Tita Anabelle [Regalado, executive producer] and Jonathan [Manalo, overall album producer], they made me realize that you don't have to have a high-pitched voice to be a real singer."

She even gives this advice to aspiring singers: "You just have to sing your heart out and be real." This is exactly what Bea did for her first full-length studio album, which is released by Star Records.

"Takut na takot po talaga ako, at the same time, majorly excited, dahil this is an endeavor na matagal ko nang pinapangarap, pero hindi ko alam kung kakayanin ko. Pero with Star Records, they helped me, guided me and dinala nila ako sa panibagong chapter ng career ko, ang pagkanta. At sana, yakapin ng mga supporters ang bagong challenge na ‘to sa buhay ko. Sana maniwala rin sila sa akin katulad ng paniniwala ng Star Records that I can actually have an album of my own!"

For album producer Jonathan Manalo, Bea is a goldmine in music, "Her voice has a very distinct tone, making her very different amongst the other singers. We at Star Records are honored too, as Bea teamed up with us to come up with this very good project."

Fans of Bea will want to get a copy of the album not just to hear their idol sing but also to see the glamorous photos of the Betty La Fea star, courtesy of Mark Nicdao, Chechel Joson and Jane Kingsu.

"I'm used to portraying roles that doesn't reflect my inner personality. It's the first time that I pour out my heart on this project because it reflects the real me. I'm thankful to Star Records for giving me the chance and allowing me to have the free-hand on choosing the songs I like to record and perform."

Included in her album are the songs "I'm Missing You," "You" by Jim Brickman, "Crazy About You," "Close To You" (original by Whitfield), "I Will Always Love You" (original by Michael Johnson) and "Kagandahan which incidentally, will be the official theme song of Betty La Fea.

Bea Alonzo, The Real Me is now available in music stores nationwide. For Bea fans in North America, her album is available at http://www.starrystarry.com/
