Fernandez started her recording career as the lead vocalist of the acoustic group MYMP in 2003. She was signed on Ivory Records together with her bandmates Chin Alcantara and Mike Manahan.

In November 2009, it was announced that she was no longer with MYMP due to "irreconcilable differences". It was also stated that she had signed a recording contract with Star Records.[1]
