But this 17-year old Chinese Cebuana is more than just beautiful. Kim Chiu was first known as the big winner of Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition, and from there, she instantly captured the hearts of the televiewers. The young lady acts, sings and dances! Even now, she continues to win people with her multi-talent and charms.

Kim Chiu truly has a promising career on her side. We have been moved by Jasmine aka Poknat in the teleserye “Sana Maulit Muli” that she shares with loveteam Gerald Anderson. It was after her stay at Bahay ni Kuya when her showbiz career begun. She immediately got a role in Star Cinema’s “First Day High” mid-last year in which she starred with Gerald, Maja, Geoff, JC and many more. The people just love her that is why not long after, she was offered a break in the recording industry. Star Records saw the potential hit of an album by Kim Chiu.

Due to her tight schedule though, the project was completed a little longer than expected. Interestingly, the delay only made the timing better, and even perfect. The young artist has matured and gained more confidence compared to her humble self last year. ABS-CBN has molded her well into being the star that she is.

Now at the peak of her career, Kim Chiu releases her first solo album entitled “Gwa Ai Di” –a compilation of pop and teen love songs that would make you want to sing all day long. It is composed of eight tracks, which includes the carrier single, Crazy Love, an enchanting rhythm that will trap you into daydreaming. It speaks about a bittersweet scenario, a love that can never be. Another potential single is Trying, has a positive mood that springs from the idea of knowing what love is. Meanwhile, there are 3 Chinese songs in the Album, “Peng Yeo”, “The Moon Represents My Heart”, and “Gwa Ai Di”. Kim first sang Peng Yeo inside the PBB house. This is a friendship song that transcends any age brackets done with a Kim Chiu way. The other Chinese song, The Moon Represents My Heart, is usually sung during weddings. On the other hand, the song Gwa Ai Di offers a more mature perspective on romance. Carrying the actual title of Kim Chiu’s album, it represents Kim’s growth as an artist as well. Moreover, her duet I’ve Fallen For You with Gerald Anderson will surely make a lot of fans trigger with excitement especially with their upcoming movie to be shown mid-August of this year. And lastly, the Heartbreak Song will readily share one’s sorrow from a “can’t move on” situation.
