“I know this pain will turn to beauty. Nothing worth it ever comes from being easy.” – Vealy
Vealy is an LA based singer-songwriter and blogger born and raised in the Philippines. She has been singing since before she could start reading lyrics! Growing up, she loved singing Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Diana Ross…basically everyone her grandma loved listening to. She watched all the singing shows and later competed in local talent shows. She moved to the United States in 2013 at age 17. She then went to college for nursing in Chicago, but quickly realized she had a passion for performing, singing and writing songs. She had acting, music improv, voice lessons and rehearsals for musicals on top of her nursing classes.
She became a registered nurse at age 20, worked in the ER for an entire year; doing open mics, writing songs and singing on the side. She even joined a Chicago singing competition, and made it to the top 5. She finally mustered the courage to quit nursing and follow her heart. Here she is in Los Angeles, a full-time musician— writing original music, performing in local shows, even busking sometimes with her keyboard on Melrose Ave.
