Geca Morales destined to Sing

From a shy high school girl at the university of Santo Tomas suddenly took the world, and now the country by song. Geca Morales, the newest power vocal, makes waves as she dishes out her smooth rapping skills and powerful rock renditions with confidence.



Geca was born Maria Angelia Morales and according to her, "Since I was a child, I loved to sing. I would even grab the microphone form hosts and singers at the fiesta, but I became a very shy when I went to high school. " At 13 she joined a school choir, and on one occasion, was requested to sing a solo. "I didn't song in front of a crowd or anything, but inside a Booth." Her voice was broadcasted around the campus through the school sound system. While she was hidden from the view, that didn't diminish the pressure she felt in performing. "It was my first time to do a solo and I was so nervous. And then I made a huge mistake!" she shared, cringing at the memory.


Lorie, Geca's mom admittedly was surprised when Geca decided to stop singing. Knowing that her child's voice was a gift that was to be shared, Lorie urged her daughter to sing again. With a little prodding from her mother, Geca enrolled at the Center for Pop Music Philippines- and there, her passions we're awakened.

Geca got her groove back. Geca found a sense of peace and place singing the memorable hits of Kelly Clarkson, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj and Mandy Moore, whom she greatly admired. She continued to hone her craft at the Center for Pop Music Philippines, training under the best vocal coaches. In time, she found herself competing against her peers.

She joined the Center for Pop Music Philippines' Voice Recording Excellence competition and won 1St runner up. Soon, Geca was invited to be a  apet of the schools prestigious roster of artists. Geca also paired up with other female vocalists at the Center to form the girl group, Las Chicas.


Over the next few years, Geca would prove to be unstoppable. She joined bigger and more prestigious competions to challenge herself. She won the Outstanding Performer Award from GawaMusika in 2016. Then, that same year, she was named Senior Solo Vocalist for Team Philippines at the World Championships of Performing Arts (WCOPA) held in California, US WCOPA is the first only global "Talent Olympics" an fits the same competition where renowned balladeers Jed Madela was discovered. 

Geca completed against hundreds of participants from over 50 countries. She sung and danced her way through the numerous rounds and into the finals. In the end, she won the Gold in the Female Vocal Rap Category, and the Silver Medal in the Female Vocal Rock Category. 


Today Geca has not only found her voice, she is excited to share it with the rest of the world. Set on becoming a full-fledged performer like her idols Sarah Geronimo and KZ Tandingan, Geca launched her first single, "Oo, Ikaw" under MCA Music (Universal Music Philippines)  and her first music video. 

                                       

"My debut single was really an exciting experience. I had this song for the longest time" she reveals. "This song represented me and the music that I wanted to make so many years ago. It's a little alternative, a little light rock, but very truthful to who I am as an artist" Geca shares with a smile. 

For her first original song, Geca explores young love, the fear of rejection and taking risks."I am already happy hearing mynsong on the radio, and seeing how people react to it. I'm overjoyed when people tell me how they've been touched by my music. I hope everyone gets the chance to listen to my single, and enjoy it as much as I do."

Geca has, indeed, found her voice, and the world is now ready to listen.
