Life Before TNT
Elaine finished a degree in mass communication. At school, she was active in plays and other literary-musical activities. She can play the guitar and ukulele but her hobby is actually reading books.
In 2005, Elaine joined and became a monthly finalist in the Little Big Star contest which was won by Rhap Salazar.
Undaunted by her defeat in the Little Big Star competition, she continued to chase her dream of becoming a professional singer. She auditioned for the first and second edition of the Tawag Ng Tanghalan competition, a segment of It’s Showtime variety show of ABS-CBN. On both occasions, she was rejected. She auditioned again for the third season and eventually, she became the champion, bringing home P2-million cash prize, a house and lot, and a recording and talent contract, among other prizes.
