Claudia Barretto officially joins Viva Artists Agency
Claudia Barretto is now officially the newest talent of the Viva Artists Agency, just months after her sister, actress Julia Barretto, transferred last September.
“So thrilled to announce my partnership with the @vivaartistsagency family. I am so grateful for everyone I’ve crossed paths with and for those who have helped me get to where I am today,” the young artist posted on Instagram on Wednesday, Jan. 20.
“To my supporters, thank you for loving me. It is my greatest honor and privilege to be able to make music and none of this would be possible without you,” Claudia added.

She also thanked her Universal Records Philippines and Cornerstone Entertainment families for their “unwavering support and guidance.”
Claudia also believes that she and the local talent agency are “very compatible,” noting that she is “very hopeful and excited to work with Viva more closely,” as seen at a digital press conference the agency held via Facebook also on Jan. 20,

After being asked why she joined the agency as a musician and not an actress like the Barrettos before her, the 21-year-old artist said that music has always been her passion.
“People often wonder if it was a deliberate choice to kind of veer away from the acting, but growing up, just naturally, I was so drawn to music, so drawn to singing. It had always been my passion,” she explained.
“It was just natural that I gravitated towards music. So yeah, it wasn’t because I wanted to set myself apart or anything, but it really is just because music is my passion. It’s as simple as that,” Claudia added.
Prior to Claudia’s transfer, Julia in September 2020 left Star Magic after 14 years and joined the Viva Artists Agency family. /ra
