MOMents with Laarni Lozada


The Ethereal Diva and Pinoy Dream Academy Season 2 Grand Star Dreamer – Laarni Lozada was the most recent guest for the award-winning celebrity talk show “MOMents” of Net 25 which was hosted by Ms. Gladys Reyes.

In celebration of PDA’s 10th year anniversary, Laarni inspired the crowd as she talked about her journey during her stint in Pinoy Dream Academy.

“My fascination about music started when I was only 5 years old. It’s was really my dream to become a singer” she said. It’s amazing that an early stage, she really wanted to make it in the music industry.

At a very young age, Laarni was able to envision herself, having a singing career. Immediately after high school, she flew all the way from Sultan Kudarat to Manila and later on auditioned for PDA Season 2. All of her hard work paid off when she got accepted to be part of the competition.

Laarni’s fruitful journey in PDA wouldn’t be possible without the help of the genius people who molded her talent. (Headmaster Ryan Cayabyab, Direk Joey Reyes, Over-all Voice Mentor – Ms. Kitchy Molina, Voice Mentor – Monet Silvestre, Voice Teachers – Lindy and Anna, Diction/Speech Mentor – Von Arroyo, Dance Mentors – Teacher Georcelle Dapat and Maribeth Bichara, Acting Performance Mentor – Malou de Guzman).
After 3 months of staying inside the academy, Laarni won the coveted title of Grand Star Dreamer which earned her a place in the stable talents of ABS CBN’s management group Star Magic. She has made appearances in many TV and radio programs such as ASAP, Boy & Kris, Umagang Kay Ganda, Sharon, The Buzz, Entertainment Live, The Singing Bee, Wowowee, Net25, WRR / MOR 101.9, Love Radio, YES FM, DZMM Showbiz and many more.

“I was extremely happy because of my experience inside the Academy. I was able to sing with big stars such as Zsa-Zsa Padilla, Martin Nievera, Gary Valenciano, Sheryn Regis, Rachelle Ann Go, Sarah Geronimo, Christian Bautista and Jed Madela”, she uttered.

Laarni also worked with the various people who trusted her talent and guided her on her fast-rising singing career. Some of them are the prominent directors from ABS-CBN – her former managers, Direk Lauren Dyogi and Mr. Johnny Manahan, Kapamilya staff, DJs, anchors, actors/actresses.

Aside from TV and radio appearances, she had various shows and concerts here and abroad. Laarni also received multiple awards, sponsors, and endorsements.


Laarni Lozada released her self-titled debut album under Star Records. The album spawned hit singles such as ‘Kung Iniibig Ka Niya’ which was penned by one of the most prolific composers in the Philippines, Vehnee Saturno. This song was the official soundtrack of the ABS-CBN soap opera entitled ‘Kambal Sa Uma.’ Her second single, was a revival of the hit song Bakit Nga Ba Mahal Kita which was originally sung by Roselle Nava also became an OST of ABS-CBN’s Precious Hearts Romances series entitled Alyna. Her first original song entitled Manalig Ka (her winning piece in PDA) was one of the great masterpieces of Headmaster Ryan Cayabyab. The song was also included in the ‘Scholars Sing Cayabyab’ album which was certified Gold by PARI.

These albums became one of the top-selling albums in the local music industry. ‘Laarni Lozada’ was later on certified gold by PARI. Laarni also won the award for Best New Female Recording Artist during the 22nd Awit Awards.

“After ng PDA, syempre bata pa po ako no’n, nakakagulat paglabas ng bahay kasi hindi ito yung buhay ko before… Kailangan maayos ka palagi, eh di ako marunong sa fashion and make up. Di din ako marunong mag-download ng mga kanta na dapat aralin, at wala po ako alam sa technology kaya di ako active sa social media noon. Hirap din ako mag-travel kasi wala pa akong car before. Pressure din sa mga fans na nag-aaway, daming haters na umabot pa sa nagkaroon ako ng death threats na di ko po alam saan nanggaling. Yung mga tao sa palibot di ko na alam sino ang totoo at hindi, kasi yung iba nag-te-take advantage kapag kaharap ang bait pero pagtalikod mo sisiraan ka na.”

But behind the fame, Laarni went through a massive depression because of the harsh comments written by online bashers. As new to being known, she had no idea how to handle harsh criticisms, thus, she was not able to defend herself. The people who hate her didn’t have an idea that the woman they were trying to bring down has been experiencing depression due to lack of physical support from her family (in the province), family/love conflicts, and burn out because of unmet expectations.
During the upsurge of this issue, Laarni chose to conceal herself from the limelight and decided to fight her depression on her own. It was not easy problem to face but because of her faith in the Lord, she was able to get through it.


Apart from the pressure in the show business, Laarni focused on finishing her studies. There is no doubt that she an achiever. She eventually finished her degree (BS Education) with flying colors from the Philippine Women’s University.

Laarni went to the U.S.A. where her Aunt Linda lives. She took a break for a while.
She joined the one of a kind international contest where Jed Madela is one of the mentors, World Championships of Performing Arts in Hollywood, LA California. Laarni proved once again that her amazing talent and won 5 medals (4 golds and 1 silver) in the said competition.

But the story doesn’t stop there. After a few years of silence, our Ethereal Diva successfully coped up with depression, renewed with a strong spirit and someone with peace of mind.
As she came back, she recorded a new song for the official soundtrack of ABS-CBN’s teleserye – Galema, Anak Ni Zuma entitled “Huwag Ganyan”.

She was also invited to be part of the Kapamilya Champions on ASAP.


Before the program ended, Laarni didn’t forget to leave ample pieces of advice to those who are battling with depression.

“Always live a simple life and be contented with what you have. Never detach yourself from your family and friends. Involve yourself in helpful activities such as traveling, going to the gym, reading good books/bible, writing down your thoughts, be optimistic, never compare yourself to others to avoid frustrations, listening to happy music, be generous and be grateful. Surround yourself with good friends who are always there to support you and bring out the best in you. And most importantly, talk to God because he’s just there to listen and help you.”

She also mentioned to always keep your friends and God close to you.
“Sa bible, lagi kong binabasa ‘yung Book of Job. Sabi doon, kahit mawala na daw ang lahat – money, material things, family, mga anak niya, asawa, lahat-lahat pero hindi talaga siya bumitaw kay God. Binigyan pa siya ng sakit. So ‘yun! Sabi ko okay lang, kahit mawala kayong lahat, mawala ‘yung fame, basta ang importante nandiyan lang Siya.”
Laarni Lozada is truly an epitome of a strong-independent woman. Let’s also never forget the line she uttered at the end of the show, “After mong madapa, babangon ka”.


As Laarni didn’t give up on her dreams, she came back with a new single “Ikaw Yun” under LST Productions, composed by Mr. Arnold Reyes and Lorna Sun Tobias and few days after the rise of this new single, she received numerous radio and tv guesting invitations.

Recently, Laarni was tagged as the Voice and Ambassador of Youth Revolution, an advocacy who helped the young ones how to fight depression. This is truly a concrete proof that she never let depression take away the sunshine in her. She believed in herself and she’s pretty sure that God is always there to guide and provide.

The coalition of different civic groups headed by Atty. Candelaria “Candy” Rivas and Ms. Rita Villareal (Principal of Capiz National High School) conceptualized an event that helped a lot of students in response to the alarming rate of suicide caused by depression among the youth in all parts of the country.

36826271_1874988012588707_7665499639528816640_nThis ‘Youth Revolution’ was recently held at the Capiz Gym, Villareal Stadium and attended by more than 6,000 students.

Message from Laarni’s Instagram: 

sobrang saya ko kc we had a very successful event at Roxas City Capiz. punong puno po ang Capiz Gymnasium yesterday. To those who watched and attended the “Youth Revolution” headed by my Aunt Attorney Candy Rivas thank you! Hope everyone will continue to support our advocacy and let us continue to pray not only for the youth, but also for the people battling depression etc.. Good day! 💕❤ #angkabataanangpagasangbayan”


The advocacy was also supported by a lot of artists such as Aegis band, Ms. Imelda Papin and Ms. Claire dela Fuente.

Watch the videos from Aegis, Imelda Papin and Claire dela Fuente here:


It was a well-applauded and successful event indeed as the students have been facilitated and taught how to battle depression. In today’s era, it is not rare for young people to feel down or experience mood swings. Adolescence is a stage of life where a teenager is confused with physical, emotional, psychological, and social changes happening in their daily lives.

The journey of this advocacy will not end here as per Atty. Rivas. Supporting her were the various working people for the Lord and Vice-Governor Nonoy Contreras. Their group is planning to spread the spiritual revival in our country with the guidance and blessing of the Lord.
