Meet Jayda, The Artistahin & Talented Daughter of Jessa Zaragoza And Dingdong Avanzado

41-year-old singer and actress, Richelle Ann Mallari Loyola or better known by her stage name Jessa Zaragoza. She was dubbed as the “Phenomenal Diva” and the “Jukebox Queen of the 90s” for her famous hit songs Just Can’t Help Feelin (1997) and her carrier single “Bakit Pa?,” one of her songs that made it to the top 40 hits during 1997 to 1999 and also became a number one ballad in the Philippines.

On March 18, 2001, the beautiful singer-actress tied the knot with her fellow singer and former politician Dingdong Avanzado in a wedding that was highly publicized in newspapers and television talk shows.

Their daughter, Janelle Amanda, or simply Jayda may appear to some as a showbiz newcomer, but we can’t deny the fact that she is now one of the most admired and followed young artists in the entertainment industry.

By looking at her photos, you will see that she inherited the good looks of her parents, particularly her super gorgeous and mestiza mom, Jessa. But not only that, she got their celebrity genes as she also got the talent of her mom and dad in terms of singing.

As a matter of fact, she is also a part of the ASAP squad together with Ylona Garcia, Lala Vinzon, Jeremy Ginoga, and Kyle Echarri.

The 16-year-old talented singer was able to build her own music, and last year, Jayda released her debut single, “Text.”

While many admire her beauty and her undeniable talent, there were also a number of people online that keeps on saying negative things and bad words to her in different social media platforms.

It will be recalled that Jessa posted about this on her social media accounts and called out bashers of her daughter Jayda as it was really something that any parent couldn’t take too much, especially when it comes to harsh and life-threatening comments to her daughter that comes from heartless and rude people.

Even Jayda’s close friend, Darren Espanto, defended her and spoke on behalf of his good friend amid these reports of cyberbullying. This simple act from Darren earned praise from Jayda’s father, Dingdong Avanzado.


Based on some reports, Jayda also shared in a sit-down vlog for music portal One Music PH that this was not the first time she experienced online bullying.

The young Kapamilya singer revealed that she was only 12 years old when she first received a lot of hate speech and below-the-belt comments from bashers online.
