Birthday: August 23, 1987
Who would ever forget that beautiful voice from a soft drink commercial singing “Sana?” Well, she has definitely gone a long way from saying “I Wish” because this lovely Atenista (Ateneo graduate) has been heard by the world. Monica Pauline Gil or popularly known as Nikki Gil was first spotted singing in a church then came numerous endorsements that served as her ladder to getting her big break not only in Philippine showbiz but also in the international scene. Nikki sang and starred in the music video of High School Musical’s “Breaking Free.” She also sang “Gotta Go My Own Way,” which climbed the charts. She also played the character of Elle Woods in the musical “Legally Blonde.” Nikki is indeed one of the most talented stars of her time as she is not only a recording artist but also a host and an actress playing major roles in films and Kapamilya drama series.
