Meet Filipino Sensation Ranella and Def Jam Records

“I just want to sing,” Ranella Ferrer told her parents as soon as she was able to speak. From her first stage performance of “Somewhere Out There” at the age of 3, her passion and talent were undeniable. From that moment on, Ranella knew that she wanted to share her gift to the world, and dreamed of becoming the future “Asian Superstar”. At 13, Ranella left behind her native land, the Philippines and moved to America with a vision of pursuing her natural born talent. 

Since setting foot in this country, Ranella’s relentless hard work has paid off--creating not only a buzz but also a presence in the Los Angeles music scene.  Opening for such acts as Twista, Murphy Lee from Nelly’s camp, Aaron Hall (formally of Guy), and most recently Keyshia Cole at The Vault350 in Long Beach, this 5’ 5”, thick, curly haired exotic beauty has her own unique style plus a voice with an impressive 5 octave range. Her lyrics come straight from seeking life’s true essence of happiness, falling in and out of love, learning to deal with pain and rebelling from those emotions, taking you back to days when people were really singing about something.  It’s undeniable--that this girl has pop, soul and some funk rolled up in a package ready for delivery.

Ranella will be appearing on Sunday only at 5p.m. for a special introductory panel. Other Universal/Def Jam Records talents will join in the fun.
