Sharon Gamboa Cuneta-Pangilinan is a Filipino actress, singer, television host, and commercial endorser. She is referred to as the “Megastar” of the Philippines for her unparalleled success in the entertainment industry. Her career – spanning over 40 years to date – as a multi-awarded film actress, record-breaking singer and concert performer, top-rated television host and one of the highest-paid commercial endorsers, is a testament to her achievements in all facets of the entertainment spectrum.

In January 1978, a wide-eyed, 12-year old Sharon Gamboa Cuneta made her first visit to 782 Aurora Boulevard, which was the address of Vicor Records. Her Uncle and Vice-President of Vicor, Tito Sotto, asked her to record “Tawag Ng Pag-Ibig” which he produced for her at Vicor and shortly after, this newbie singer was on television promoting her own song for the very first time and on the top-rated TV show Discorama hosted by TVJ, no less.

The young Sharon was being interviewed live on Discorama when it suddenly hit her: “This is the show I watch every week. This is the show that I don’t know how many hundreds of thousands or millions of people watch in the whole country. When it hit me, I couldn’t talk.”

In May 1978, Sharon Cuneta followed up with a song by Rey Valera entitled “Mr. DJ” that became THE Song that started it all for her. Her Producer in Vicor, Tito Sotto, wanted Valera to make a song that would appeal to the Radio DJ’s and convince them to play her record on the air.
