Chadleen Lacdo and Her Journey to Successful Musical Career

“When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you…”

LIKE the lyrics of the song of Lea Salonga’s album Small Voice, “When You Wish upon a Star,” Chadleen also wished, dreamed and prayed her heart desires during her early childhood years to become a notable singer. Her vision is to sing, smile and inspire people…
Chadleen Alberth Uy Lacdo-o was born in Cebu and has speaking impairment due to her cleft palate.  Her classmates made fun of her when she sings.  She felt the agony of her parents.  She even wanted to stop studying then.

Napoleon Hill once said: "Man, alone, has the power to transform his thoughts into physical reality; man, alone, can dream and make his dreams come true."

Through fervent prayers, rock solid faith and her singing therapy through Children’s Worship Service as a choir member, miracles came true then for a four-year old faithful child after an operation given by the Operation Smile Philippines and the Marquita-Salimbangon-Yeung Charitable Foundation, Inc. (MSYCFI). Operation Smile is an organization that provides free surgeries to children who have cleft palates.

Chadleen’s exploration to musical and colorful life is in full swing.  Her recent performance in DWDM Pinas FM 95.5’s Fun-bansang Selebrasyon energized the crowd. It was another opportunity for her to shine in spite of the technical problem on stage and she did it soundly in acapella rendering the popular song of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep”.

In that amazing anniversary event, she was introduced as the Singing Ambassador of Operation Smile. She mentioned her story that she was born “ngo-ngo” and shared her inspiring and successful operation.

Her singing milestones started when she joined a nationwide singing competition for children and became one of the finalists of ABS-CBN’s Little Big Star in the big division in Cebu. She was a media magnet because of her singing talent, vision and inspiring life story.  She appeared on various TV programs like TFC's TV Patrol with Karen Davila, ABS-CBN’s Rated K with Korina Sanchez, ANC’s Storyline with Patricia Evangelista, Probe Team with Cheche Lazaro, MAG TV Cebu, CTTN Channel “Babae” hosted by Aileen Senoran and Stella Palomo, NET25’s Homepage and GEMNET’s Pananampalataya, Pag-asa at Pag-ibig
