“I just got an appointment to interview for my US citizenship! I’ve been a US permanent resident for the last 20 years, but it wasn’t until the pandemic that the word ‘permanent’ actually became more true. It was just early last year that I actually began making a life in NYC with my hubby, performing in concerts, auditioning, and booking some work as an actress and commercial model,” she wrote.

“It has taken me 2 decades to get here. In two months, I will be 50. Some might say that’s too late to be starting a career from the bottom. But as Michelle Yeoh said in her Best Actress Award acceptance speech at the Oscars, ‘For all the little boys and girls who look like me watching tonight, this is a beacon of hope and possibilities. This is proof that dreams… dream big, and dreams do come true. And ladies, don’t let anybody tell you you are ever past your prime. Never give up.’ I am a proud Pinay and I fully intend to be a dual citizen, but the American dream still beckons,” said the singer.


With hits such as “Paalam Na,” “Nakapagtataka” and “Mr. Kupido” to her name, Alejandro began her career in the Philippines when she joined theater at the age of 8 via “The Sound of Music.” Her theater journey ran its course as she appeared in more stage plays including “Peter Pan,” “Noli Me Tangere,” “Alikabok,” “Sino Ka ba Jose Rizal,” “Larawan” and “Fire Water Woman.”

Other than theater gigs, the OPM singer commenced her showbiz career at the age of 12, when she joined the popular TV show “That’s Entertainment.” She also starred in the films “Rent,” ‘Quezon’s Game” and her first teleserye, “The Broken Marriage Vow.”
