There is always chaos expected when you put four different women, each a star in her own right (an understatement), in four different states of life altogether in one room. You would think piles and piles of stuff scattered all around, people rushing to and fro to meet demands and more people fussing around to satisfy each artist’s whims. Well, we had none of that. This shoot was different. There they were in the dressing room, each in her own corner — sitting quietly, almost Zen-like, even, and without any fanfare.

MANILA, Philippines – Born into a family of showbiz royalty, the performing genes have surely been passed on to Zia Quizon, but, Zia shares, growing up exposed to showbiz has always made her shy away from the limelight – until now. The singer-songwriter is steadily gaining popularity for her unique voice and honest lyrics, making her one of the year’s hottest singers.
“I guess I’ve always wanted to be involved in music. It’s been part of my life, part of our household,” says Zia. “But I always thought I would be a songwriter, or something out of the spotlight,” she adds.
The daughter of diva ZsaZsa Padilla and the late comedy king Dolphy, Zia grew up with an understanding that the spotlight was for her parents and older half-siblings.
