Ronnie Liang (born January 31, 1985) is a Filipino singer. He is the former finalist of the popular reality-talent search franchise in the Philippines, Pinoy Dream Academy. He was the second runner-up next to Jay-R Siaboc, who is one of his closest friends from the said contest, and grand star dreamer Yeng Constantino. He sang the popular OPM hit "Ngiti" and is a mainstay of ABS-CBN's Sunday variety show ASAP 08.
Liang is the youngest of the seven children of a low-income family. Yet, despite this, he always dreamed of helping his family alleviate themselves from the plight of poverty. A diligent working student, he supported himself through college by working in a fastfood outlet and a video shop while studying at Holy Angel University in his hometown of Angeles City, Pampanga. All his sacrifices and hard work paid off as he graduated with a BS Education degree. He is Filipino-Chinese.
The Angeles City native started working part-time as a ramp model, until his manager discovered he can sing. This became a turning point in Ronnie’s career as his manager encouraged him to join singing contests. Among them was Pinoy Pop Superstar. He first rose to notoriety as the grand contender that was disqualified from the singing competition because he had a manager. He could have been the eventual champion of the season, but out of loyalty to his manager, he opted to leave the competition.
Liang then joined Pinoy Dream Academy and made it past the initial screening and was fortunate enough to be one of the 20 scholars to study inside the Academy. After a few months, Ronnie made it to the Honor’s List of Six and ended up as PDA's second runner-up.
Now that the competition is over, Liang busies himself with gigs and guestings with PDA’s Top 6. However, priority goes into the recording of his album under Universal Records, which is due to be out soon. He also wishes to venture into acting but that would have to wait as his priority for this year is singing. He remains thankful to the people who support him– his family, most especially his mother, his manager, George Roca, and his loyal supporters, namely the Ronnians, Superonics and macaRONNIEs.
He was launched as a product endorser of Joel Cruz Signatures brand of perfume in August of 2009 at the SM Sky Dome and was relaunched at the 1@11 event at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds in January of 2011.
