The girls of singing trio La Diva maintained there is no competition between them and new fellow Kapuso star Rachelle Ann Go.

“Magkaiba kami ng pino-portray. Kumbaga siya, as solo singer, tapos kami, as a group, so walang competition,” said petite belter Jonalyn Viray on “Unang Hirit,” May 19.
Added member Maricris Garcia, “We’ve known Rachelle even nung nasa Dos (ABS-CBN) pa siya. We’re happy that she’s Kapuso now.”
Viray also believes that competing with others is not healthy because “hindi magiging maganda ‘yong singing.”
Both acts are products of singing contests on GMA-7. Viray and Garcia emerged as grand champions of “Pinoy Pop Superstar” Season 1 and Season 3, respectively, while Aicelle Santos was a runner-up in Season 2. Their group was formed during their stint on the now defunct variety show “SOP.”
Go, meanwhile, won top prize on “Search For A Star.” For six years, she was part of the long-running show “ASAP” before joining “Party Pilipinas” earlier this year.
The award-winning group feels happy that their local success is slowly materializing abroad as well.
“Nakakatuwa kasi nakikilala na ‘yong La Diva sa ibang bansa. Pag nare-recognize nila kami, nakakataba ng puso,” said Garcia.
