Jaya is known in the Philippines as the Queen of Soul. Born Maria Luisa Ramsey on March 21, 1969 in Manila, Philippines, the name Jaya came from an American producer when he signed her to a record deal in the U.S. in 1989.

Her biggest break in the Philippine music scene came when she won first place in the 1996 Metropop Song Festival for her interpretation of "Sometimes You Just Know". She also won as Best Interpreter at the Asia Song Festival held in Hong Kong in February 1997 for her rendition of the song "You Lift Me Up", composed by Danny Tan with lyrics by Dodjie Simon. This composition also received the grand prize, the Best Song award. In the late '90s, the radiowaves in the Philippines were filled with Jaya's songs. At present, the radiowaves are filled with Jaya's songs. Her albums were bestsellers in records stores nationwide.

Jaya found better success in her hometown, the Philippines where she has become successful in music, television, and also theater.

She sold total of 1 million records worldwide.
