Early life and family[edit]

Magdangal was born on 6 November 1978[1] in Quezon City[38] to Jun Magdangal and Paulette Perez. Her father worked in the marketing and public relations departments of San Miguel Corporation[39] for 21 years before resigning in 1993 to manage Magdangal's career. Her mother worked at the credit section of the Land Bank of the Philippines before handling the finance department of Magdangal's enterprises. Magdangal has two siblings, elder sister Melanie and younger brother Jonathan.[40][b]

After high school at Colegio de San Lorenzo in Quezon City,[41] Magdangal attended a theater-arts course at the University of the Philippines which was cut short when AMA Computer University offered her a scholarship in Computer Science.[42]


Early beginnings[edit]

In 1988, Magdangal had her early beginning at the age of eleven as an entertainer through the singing group 14-K[43] under the supervision and training of Master Composer, Ryan Cayabyab.[44] During those years, she took lessons in singing from Cayabyab, dance from Douglas Nieras, and acting from Gina Alajar and Beverly Vergel.[45]


In 1992, Magdangal had her breakthrough when she was discovered by talent manager and film and television director Johnny Manahan[46] while performing with 14K in the weekly late night musical show Ryan Ryan Musikahan. She was then invited by Manahan to guest in the ABS-CBN sitcom Mana which turned out out to be her screen test.[47] After her brief stint in Mana (1992), she made her professional television debut in the youth-oriented program Ang TV where she was featured in musical, sitcom, and newscasting segments before she was given her own segment "Payong Kaibigan".[47] Her inclusion as part of the Ang TV was also her launching as one of the pioneer contract artists of ABS-CBN's Talent Center (now Star Magic).[48]

Magdangal's casting in Ang TV led to more television opportunities. [45] Her early shows included the political satire-sitcom Abangan Ang Susunod Na Kabanata,[4] daily noon-time program ‘Sang Linggo nAPO Sila[4] (1995), and as one of the pioneer host-performer of Asia's longest-running[49] musical variety show ASAP[50] (1995). In ASAP, her most notable segments were "Tricykat"[51] and "LSS (Love Songs & Stories)".[52]

In 1994, Magdangal was chosen by Walt Disney Records to be its first Filipino recording artist[45] to sing the theme songs of Disney classics Pocahontas (1995) and The Hunchback of Notre-Dame (1996) for Philippine promotion.[53] Before that, she appeared in the accompanying soundtrack album for the show Ang TV, where she recorded "Magkaibigang Tunay", the theme song of her segment "Payong Kaibigan".[54]

In 1995, Magdangal appeared in a small role in the film Hataw Na,[55] with Gary Valenciano and Dayanara Torres. The following year, she had her first big role in the Ang TV-spin-off movie Ang TV: The Adarna Adventures,[56] where she played the role of Princess Adarna, the human form of the Filipino mythical singing bird Ibong Adarna.[57]

After recording theme songs that were non-album released and appearing in a couple of compilation albums, Magdangal released her debut album A Wish Comes True in 1996 under Walt Disney Records.[58] The album was praised by critics for containing adventurous repertoire; with David Gonzales of saying "The music can be classified as middle-of-the-road, but it is still more adventurous than most albums made by Philippine female and male solo artists... A Wish Comes True, however, has commendable diversity... [and] Magdangal, who is also an actress and television personality, has a fine voice that is full of depth and warmth. The arrangements on the album are excellent and imaginative, showing a lot of pep and creativity. Magdangal has a promising future."[58]

In 1997, Magdangal became known to a wider audience through the film adaptation of the television series F.L.A.M.E.S.,[59] and its accompanying soundtrack album where she recorded two original songs, "Sana’y Kapiling Ka" and "Tameme". The album was commercially successful earning her a double platinum from the record label.[60] In the movie, she played Leslie, a rich high school student who has a cynical perception of love; who takes it badly when she learns of her classmate Butch's (played by Marvin Agustin) feelings for her.[61] The Marvin-Jolina team later produced successful[62] film and television projects that made them the "most admired, most followed and most loved team ups of their generation".[63][64] While in Film Development Council of the Philippines's Sine Sandaan, a celebration of the 100th year of Philippine cinema, the tandem was recognized as one of the luminaries under the Love Team Ng Sentenaryo category for their unparalleled contribution and years of hard work for the Philippine cinema.[65]

Magdangal's first major role in a full-length film was in Kung Ayaw Mo, Huwag Mo! (1998)[66] in which she played the role of Ditas who feels smothered by her loving yet strict sister Doris (played by Maricel Soriano).[66] On working with the Philippine's Diamond Star[67] Maricel Soriano, Magdangal revealed that to be cast alongside her idol is a dream come true for her especially that Soriano is a major influence in her acting career especially in the dramedy genre.[68]

Magdangal's first critical and commercial success in film was the multi-million box office hit[69] and Filipino classic[70] Labs Kita... Okey Ka Lang? (1998), alongside Agustin, where she played Bujoy who fell in love with her best friend, Ned (Agustin's character).[71] The movie produced the immortal line[72][73] from Magdangal "Oh yes! Kaibigan mo lang ako... and I'm so stupid to make the biggest mistake of falling in love with my best friend."[74] [75] When the film was revived[76] through digital restoration and remastering[77] by the ABS-CBN Film Restoration Project in 2017, its revival premiere filled two cinemas at U.P. Town Center.[78] The soundtrack album was also commercially successful, producing the Magdangal signature song "Kapag Ako Ay Nagmahal". The album was certified with a double platinum by the Philippine Association of the Record Industry (PARI) for selling more than 80,000 units.[79]

In 1998, Magdangal was cast in Star Cinema's 1998 Metro Manila Film Festival official entry Puso ng Pasko.[80] In this Christmas-themed film, Magdangal played Merry, the human form of a magical Christmas ornament, who grants wishes to those who believe in the true essence of Christmas. The film was the Festival's third best picture[81] and Magdangal's performance earned her a Best Supporting Actress nomination.[citation needed]

By the end of the 1990s, Magdangal achieved further success in releasing her sophomore self-titled album Jolina (1999); top billing the blockbuster film Hey Babe![82] (1999) and headlining the romantic-comedy drama series Labs Ko Si Babe (1999).[83] The album Jolina, which contains original and cover cuts, along with previously recorded songs from movie soundtracks, received a quadruple platinum[79] certification at the end of the year, and was declared by PARI as the biggest selling album of 1999.[84] Eventually, the album received a 7x platinum certification for selling more than 280,000 units.[85][86] The album produced the Magdangal original song "Laging Tapat", which remained on the lists of top radio charts throughout the Philippines for weeks[87] and her version of "Paper Roses", a revival that became a favorite nationwide.[87] David Gonzales of the Philippine Daily Inquirer stated in a review: "[Magdangal] may not sing the most adventurous music around, as her repertoire consists mostly of the passionate, easy-listening love song that appeals to many Filipinos, but she has a voice and style that promises to withstand the test of time. [She] has a voice and delivery that deserves the attention it gets."[c][88][89]

The film Hey Babe! was another project starring the Marvin-Jolina team. Directed by Joyce E. Bernal, Magdangal plays the role of a girl who's fond of consulting a fortune-teller on who her dream-boy should be. Agustin's character, her ardent suitor, conspires with the fortune-teller. The film is the last project of the pair in a full-length film.[90] In television, the pair starred in the primetime series Labs Ko Si Babe,[91] which enjoyed top ratings during its run and achieved top spot during its peak.[92] The series is one of the longest-running ABS-CBN soap operas, airing for one year and three months;[93] and is also the first Filipino romantic-comedy drama series,[93] making Magdangal the pioneer in romcom genre in Philippine television.[94]


In 2000, Magdangal released her third studio album On Memory Lane (2000) which consists entirely of remakes of originals coming from periods considered as the golden age of popular music.[95] The album's packaging and its booklet also delivered a take on the nostalgia craze, with Magdangal costumed and photographed as a World War II beauty.[95] On Memory Lane received a gold record[79] certification from PARI three days after its release,[96] making it the fastest-selling record since PARI took charge in awarding certifications. The album peaked with a 6x platinum certification[97] for selling more than 240,000 units. The album is also considered by the Performers Rights Society of the Philippines[98] as one of the finest albums ever released in the Philippine recording industry.[96] Writing for, David Gonzales stated in a review: "The young Magdangal does an excellent job [in On Memory Lane], and her voice has matured impressively since 1998's (sic) Jolina; her delivery is polished and self-assured. Perhaps if she had sung these tunes first, she would be an international star. Despite consisting entirely of remakes, this is an enjoyable album, showcasing Magdangal's impressive development.".[99]

In the same year, Magdangal portrayed a Chinese girl trying to escape an arranged marriage in the action romantic-comedy film Tunay na Tunay: Gets Mo? Gets Ko! (2000), alongside Robin Padilla. The film was critically and commercially successful earning Magdangal the citation "Princess of RP Movies"[100] in the 31st Box Office Entertainment Awards. In television, she led the comedy sitcom Arriba, Arriba! (2000).[101] The show was consistently ranked within the top 10 highest-rating television programs during its run.[102] However, after two years, Magdangal was replaced[103] by Heart Evangelista when she started appearing in rival networks' programs as a freelancer.

Magdangal's next film was the fantasy romantic comedy Kung Ikaw Ay Isang Panaginip (2002), directed by Wenn V. Deramas. Magdangal played Rosallie, a maker and distributor of processed food who falls in love with a guy whose face is blown up in a toothpaste brand billboard.[104] It was released in 2002, with Magdangal earning her second Princess of Philippine Movies citation from the Box Office Entertainment Awards.[105] The film "showcased [Director Wenn] Deramas' penchant for the downright absurd ... which [featured] the typical [Magdangal]-character falling for a billboard model, [and was] framed like a typical romantic comedy, complete with a predictable love triangle and other stereotypical issues, but is differentiated by its extremely playful take on fantasy-based love."[106]

In 2002, Magdangal released her fourth studio album, Jolina Sings the Masters to moderate success, earning a gold record[97] certification. A critical success for its repertoire and packaging,[d] the album was considered a first in the local industry for putting up, together, master composers in a single album.[107] Among the contributors on the album is David Pomeranz, who wrote two original songs for her.[e][108]

Magdangal's next television engagement was The Working President[109] (2002), a public affairs news magazine program produced by the Office of the Press Secretary of the Office of the President of the Philippines. The show features projects of the administration of then President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, and the activities of the President herself.[110] The selection of the personality to host the program was done by the Office of the President through a commissioned survey on the most preferred personality in the country, along with background investigations on family, endeavours, and achievements.[111] The program aired on National Broadcasting Network, the public television network owned by the Philippine Government.

In mid 2002, after a series of television guest appearances in GMA Network's programs,[112] Magdangal had her first GMA Network series in Book 2 of Kahit Kailan[113] (2002).

Directed by Eric Quizon and Gina Alajar, Magdangal played the role of a long-lost granddaughter of a wealthy Doña and was torn between the love interests of the characters of Raymart Santiago and James Blanco. The program was a breakthrough for GMA Network when the show, along with the talent search Starstruck, was able to out-rate its rival network in primetime soaps for the first time.[g]

December 2003, Magdangal represented the Philippines in the ASEAN-Japan Pop Festival, organized by Japan Foundation, held at Yokohama, Japan.[116] The concept and aim of the Festival is "to find synergy among the diverse cultures of Japan and the ASEAN countries and to bring about a sense of togetherness and community among a wide range of people who support it, through exchanges in popular music".[117]

Rito P. Asilo of the Inquirer News Service noted that "[Magdangal's] repertoire may have tenuous lyrical content, but her rich and naturally soulful voice, the album's best asset, makes utterly familiar tunes seem fresh and personal. When [Magdangal] sings, she bends, breaks and expertly sections her musical notes and vocal shifts with precision."[h]

Magdangal's next television appearances were her hosting stints in the reality talent search Starstruck (Kids Edition[121] (2004), Season 2[122] (2004), Season 3's StarStruck: The Nationwide Invasion[123] (2005), and Season 4's StarStruck: The Next Level[124] (2006)); and the longest-running morning public affairs/newscast show Unang Hirit[125][126] (2005).[i] The shows earned Magdangal hosting nominations in the PMPC Star Awards for Television, winning three.[127][128][129]

I Luv NY registered one of the most impressive pilot week ratings in the history of Philippine primetime television.[132][133] In July of the same year, she released a special edition of her sixth studio album Tuloy Pa Rin Ang Awit, launched earlier that year, to include the theme song of I Luv NY, "Makulay Na Buhay". The album, under GMA Records, also produced the hits "Maybe It's You", "Gusto", and "Let Me Be The One", a collaboration with Janno Gibbs.[134]

In 2008, Magdangal was selected to judge in the music competition Pinoy Idol,[141] an international TV franchise distributed by Fremantle Media, alongside singer-composer Ogie Alcasid and retired talent manager Wyngard Tracy.[142] Her selection as one of the judges was marred with controversy when her competence was questioned by some viewers.[143][144] That same year, she released her seventh studio album Destiny with two of the songs, her cover of "Will of the Wind" and the original "Umibig Ka", used as soundtrack in her next film I.T.A.L.Y (I Trust and Love You)[145] (2008).

In 2009, Magdangal reunited with Marvin Agustin to appear in the romantic comedy series Adik Sa'Yo.[149] Directed by Joel Lamangan,[150] the series marked the pair's first mature role in television after portraying teenybopper roles in their past projects.[151] The series, also released on DVD the following year,[152] had a modest debut before claiming top spot ratings in its timeslot.[153][154][155]


In the first half of 2010s, besides performing in Sunday musical variety show Party Pilipinas,[156] and its replacement Sunday All Stars [157] (2013); co-hosting the tabloid talkshow Personalan: Ang Unang Hakbang[158] with Jean Garcia, and; mentoring aspirants in Protégé: The Battle For The Big Artista Break[159] (2012), Magdangal took supporting roles in different series.

Despite failing to enter the final four stage of the competition, Magdangal was acknowledged by critics as a deserving finalist with entertainment writer Nestor U. Torre of the Philippine Daily Inquirer saying "[Magdangal] is, aside from being gifted and versatile in her own right, a star. Of all of the tilt's eight 'celebrity' impersonators, only [Magdangal] has ever made it to certifiable major and consistent star status. [She] has 'carried' many a TV and film production, so she has the stellar 'K' and 'cred' [others] have yet to attain."[177]

Late 2015, after a seven year hiatus in the recording industry, Magdangal released her eighth studio album Back to Love through digital downloading and streaming, containing seven original songs.[178]

Magdangal was also previously chosen to be the image model of a line of cosmetics for teens by a direct selling company;[207] an institution of higher education;[200] a government-owned universal bank[208][209][210] and a government-controlled corporation providing funds for health programs and charities of national character; and phone cards of a telecommunications company.[211] In 2000, she was chosen to be the spokesperson of the Philippine's first pre-need company;[212] while in 2008 she was tapped by an on-line marketplace to be its Style Ambassador.[213] Mid 2000s, Magdangal was selected to be the image model of an entire direct selling company appearing in the covers of its catalogs.[214][215]

Most recently, following her giving birth to two children, she was then seen endorsing children-friendly products including medicines,[216][217] disposable baby diaper,[218][219][220] and powdered formula milk drink.[221]

Blog, print, and vlog[edit]

In 1999, Magdangal had her weekly column "Sincerely Yours, Jolina" in the Super Teen Magazine.

In 2007, she entered in the blogosphere through Philippine Entertainment Portal,[222] billed as "Chuva Chika".[223]

In 2008, Magdangal had her weekly column in Inquirer Bandera "Fashionista".[224]

In 2010, Magdangal launched her own magazine Jolie,[225] a style and entertainment magazine published by OctoberEighty Publications.[226]

In 2018, she started uploading vlog entries in her YouTube channel, "Jolina Network".[227] In June 2019, she was awarded by YouTube with a Silver Play Button for surpassing 100,000 subscribers.[228]


Cultural impact[edit]

Magdangal is regarded in the Philippines as a popular culture icon (Pop Icon) for bringing popular culture into a wider audience since the 1990s.[229] As witnesses to this cultural landscape, entertainment writers Shinji Manlangit and Don Jaucian of The Philippine Star introduced Magdangal as a "[g]reat Pinoy pop culture philosopher" in their write-up in attempting to filter the best and the worst of celebrity culture.[230] While in a collaboration effort of entertainment writers Ian Urrutia, Katrina Santiago, and selected panelists of the lifestyle magazine FHM Philippines, Magdangal was credited to have built a legacy that goes beyond film, television, and music.[231] According to the panel:

Magdangal's star in the Philippines Walk of Fame.

In the 33 Things You'll Know If You're A Filipino[232] list by the American internet media and news company, BuzzFeed, Magdangal's "cultural impact" landed in the second spot, while her early program Ang TV occupied the top of the list.[232]

In 2009, she was awarded her own star in the Eastwood City Walk of Fame;[233] while she was also inducted into the Paradise of Stars in the Mowelfund compound earlier in 2007.[234][235]

Famed for her colorful and distinct fashion style,[236] Magdangal has also been referred to as a fashion icon of her time.[236] Writing for the Entertainment section of, Mary Ann Bardinas stated: "...she also became an icon when it comes to fashion. Her quirky and bubbly persona and flamboyant and psychedelic style became her trademark... One of her major influences were the glittery and colorful butterfly hair clips in different shapes and sizes. Besides, her full bangs with long hair, striking highlights, and crazy braids also became a trend among young girls and teenagers. Apparently, she wasn't afraid to experiment and to veer away from the norms, and established her own rules when it comes to styling herself. She'd been the trendsetter for unique, flashy, and girly styles."[236]

"Inconceivable as it is, there was a time when anything Filipino was considered uncool — culturally baduy and inferior compared to its Asian or Western counterparts... Jolina Magdangal was baduy, Britney Spears wasn't... But as appreciation of local culture became even more amplified — and as Filipinos themselves pushed for more quality products, anything Pinoy can now stand on the shoulders of cultural giants. Heck, Jolina Magdangal is now an icon".

CNN Philippines [1]. CNN Philippines / Life / Style / Design on . April 3, 2017. Retrieved February 12, 2018.

Magdangal's style is often defined as "walking Christmas tree",[237] with entertainment writer Bianca Geli of saying: "The 1990s fashion may have come and go, but [Magdangal's] offbeat fashion, like a 'walking Christmas tree,' is an indelible trademark of the era."[237]

Her fashion statements led to the creation of Jolina Dolls, the first line of dolls that were made in the image of a Filipino personality,[238][237] and the Teen Scents by Jolina of a direct selling company, known to be the first fragrance formulated for Filipina teens.[207]

Her influences were also used as subject in different studies including undergraduate thesis[j][k][239] and books.[l][240][m][241]

Stars of today have cited Magdangal's influence on them, directly or indirectly; among them are: Toni Gonzaga, who shared in an interview on how Magdangal influenced her back when she was starting in the industry;[242] Bea Alonzo,[243] who thanked Magdangal for being an inspiration through the latter's soap operas and sitcoms;[244] Angel Locsin, who revealed that she was once a back up dancer in one of Magdangal's music video;[245][246] Dimples Romana, who shared how Magdangal had influenced her in being kind to younger actors and instilled to her how kindness pays forward;[247] Yeng Constantino, who thanked Magdangal for being an idol of her generation;[248] Jodi Santamaria, who recalled making professional television debut in one episode of Magdangal's drama series;[249] Filipino internet sensation Jake Zyrus, who said in an interview on how Magdangal influenced him when he was a kid;[250] Kiray Celis, revealing Magdangal as her peg as an aspiring comedian;[251] child actress Milkcah Wynne Nacion, who aspire to be like Magdangal;[252] Daniel Padilla;[253] and Rita Daniela.[254]

In 2017, a parody account Jolegend Slaydangal became an instant hit in the Philippines and produced a number of memes glorifying Magdangal's successes in the showbiz industry and why she is worthy of the title as the country's Queen of Pop.[255][256]

Public image[edit]

Speaking of her public image, the FHM Philippines described Magdangal as the “most charming Pinay cutie pie… [who has remained as] the perennial apple of our eyes and the showbiz industry’s unanimous peg for wholesomeness and baby face-dome”, even after getting married and giving birth to her first child.[257] Her colorful persona is always associated to the vibrant decade of the 1990’s as “reflected on her girl, quirky style setting the trend in teens and teens at heart”[258] and of which the Malaya newspaper claimed that “[m]uch of the nineties belonged to [Magdangal]”.[259]

For effectively establishing a “solid name and one that is unblemished with nary a scandal or controversy”, she was acknowledged to be a “true-blue epitome of a role model of the youth [and] pride of the industry”".[260] These public images, together with her career achievements, was seen by entertainment critics as a set of standards of a teen idol to which made her the Teen Queen of the 1990s in the Philippines. As testaments to these claims, she was a recipient of German Moreno Youth Achievement Award,[261] Gintong Kabataan Awards,[262] Youth Role Model Awards, and was even named the first ever National Youth Advocate by the National Youth Commission.[263] In 2005, she received a Serviam Award, a special citation given by the Catholic Mass Media Awards, “[elevating her] as a Paragon of a Socially-Conscious Performing Artist for consistently making herself a model of responsible behavior”.[196]

Personal life[edit]


In November 2011, Magdangal married Rivermaya's drummer Mark Escueta on a double-wedding ceremony, first on 19 November in a church wedding and the second is on 21 November in a garden wedding.[264] They have two children, Pele Iñigo,[265][266] born 18 February 2014, and Vika Anaya,[267] born 28 May 2018.


In 1999 and 2002, Magdangal was the Ambassadress of Goodwill of The Children's Hour, representing the youth and the entertainment industry.[268] The campaign was a series of global fundraising events calling out individuals and corporations across 20 countries to donate an hour's worth of their earnings to support the less fortunate children.[n]

Throughout the 2000s to early 2010s, besides focusing on her own foundation Jolina's Little Angels,[269] she was also active in GMA Kapuso Foundation, Bantay Bata, and Make A Wish Foundation.[269]

In 2006, Magdangal had her long locks trimmed by 14 inches, a first in 17 years, to start and organize a project that will gather hair for donation to an appropriate organization that makes wigs for cancer patients.[270]
