Who is ERICKA VILLONGCO? Here’s Everything We Know About Her!
Ericka Villongco has been causing quite a stir on social media because of her recent “copycat” comment on Nadine Lustre, but it isn't the first time she came under the spotlight.
For those who don’t know why "12:51" will always be a very special time to evaluate if your feelings are gone, here’s the answer to your question, “Who is Ericka Villongco?”
Back in 2009, Ericka debuted in the music scene with her younger sister Krissy Villongco as the pop-acoustic duo Krissy & Ericka, capturing everyone with their breakout hit "Up Up Down Down."
Known for charming listeners with their melodious harmonies, the Villongco sisters achieved huge success during their musical career.
They’ve spawned LSS-inducing hits such as "In Your Arms," their cover of The Corrs' "Runaway," and of course, their heartbreak anthem "12:51," which they performed live at MYX Mo! 2012. Check it out below!
A few years later, Ericka auditioned and became one of the finalists of the MYX VJ Search 2012, but failed to make it to the final cut.
After the duo took a break from music in 2014, Ericka remained visible in the showbiz limelight as James Reid's girlfriend. The two first met in 2010 while shooting Krissy & Ericka’s music video for their cover of M2M's "Don't Say You Love Me," which featured the PBB Teen Clash Big Winner. Their relationship reportedly lasted for about 3 years.
