Angeline Quinto (born November 26, 1989) is a Filipino singer, actress, and winner of Star Power: Sharon's Search For The Next Female Pop Superstar in 2011.[1][2]

Early life[edit]

Quinto was born on November 26, 1989 as the only daughter of Pop Quiros and Rosemarie Susan Mabao. Mabao initially wanted an abortion as she felt that she could no longer continue to be a mother while being in an abusive relationship with her father. Her father's aunt, Sylvia Quinto, however convinced her not to and instead offered to raise Angeline. After Mabao gave birth to Quinto, she gave up her parental rights to Mama Bob and fled while her father left for another family. Growing up in Sampaloc, Manila, Quinto was already aware that she was adopted and often kept in touch with her biological father however she never met her mother. She was eventually reunited with her mother twenty three years later in 2012.[3][4] She participated in several singing competitions in her town, but lost most of them. Despite her failures she still pursued her dreams and continued to compete in singing competitions. She would even sneak out of the house to join competitions. Then came a night of a very special night where she won 3 different competitions in just one night. Her grand mother was so proud when she won Php7,000 (US$165) and she even cooked a delicious dinner for her grandmother.


Star for a Night[edit]

Angeline was a finalist where she competed with Sarah Geronimo in a singing competition hosted by the Asia's Songbird, Regine Velasquez. She also competed with Mark Bautista now recording star, and Mau Marcelo later won as first Philippine Idol and became Philippine Diamond Diva.[5] Sharon Cuneta was one of the judges that night and the host of Star Power: Sharon's Search For the Next Female Pop Superstar.

MTB: Teen PopStar[edit]

Angeline was the grand winner (tied with Sherilyn Flores) of MTB: Teen PopStar, where she competed with Jonalyn Viray during the pre-finals. Charice became a champion in Bulilit PopStar division.[6]

Diz Iz It[edit]

She also joined GMA's Diz Iz It segment Diz Iz Kantahan: Challenge the Champion, where she was a wildcard finalist.[7]

Star Power: Sharon Search For the Next Female Superstar[edit]

After three rounds of competition, with the final round singing an original composition from Star Records, Quinto emerged as the winner of Star Power: Sharon Search For the Next Female Superstar, earning a cash prize of 1 million pesos, a Great Wall Hover SUV, and an entertainment showcase from Sony Philippines, diamond jewellery from JMK Jewelry and an exclusive recording contract from Star Records.[8]

On July 15, 2011, Quinto staged her first solo concert. She also toured and opened for Sharon Cuneta in her United States concert tour. She has sung several soundtracks for ABS-CBN television dramas and films. She is currently a performer on ASAP Rocks. Her album received a Double Platinum certification from PARI.


Angeline Quinto has cited various artists as influences to her musical style. She grew up listening to songs of Regine Velasquez and says she is the main reason she does music. Quinto credits Velasquez's singing and her song "What Kind Of Fool Am I" as influencing her to begin practicing vocal "runs" as a child, as well as helping her pursue a career as a musician.
