In college at UCLA, Kaila took voice lessons, joined the choir, and eventually won the lead role in a musical called "No Turning Back". The play led to Kaila's first professional singing gig - and steeled her passion and determination to produce her own music. She has developed a three-pronged career in music, modeling, and acting, successfully merging her talents into one charismatic package. In March, 2002, Kaila recorded and released her first single, "Our Last Night", produced by Bruno Talledo. Creatively marketing in tandem with her modeling gig, Kaila sold 3,000 copies of the single, and opened up for rap artist Coolio at the Import Extreme Car Show in Honolulu, Hawaii in June, 2002.
She also had two tracks on the Bay Area hit Import Jams, one of the #1 selling CDs in the Bay Area. Kaila's 2003 debut album, "Kaila", showcases her sweet and soulful voice with 12 R&B/Pop/Hip-Hop songs, featuring infectious hooks, Asian flourishes, and solid, professional production. The tracks were produced by track master Mr. Lew (B2K, IMX Projects) and mixed by The Gubnah (Vanessa Williams). Kaila acted as Executive Producer for the project, as well as writing or co- writing most of the songs.kaila1.JPG Kaila has performed from coast to coast, including Boston, New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles.
Her future plans include broadening her international appeal by releasing music in her native tongue, Mandarin.
