Jonalyn Roxas Viray (born November 15, 1989 in Marikina City, Philippines) is a Filipina singer and an occasional actress. She was the first ever Pinoy Pop Superstar Grand Champion. She also received five gold medals and three plaques at the 2006 World Championships of Performing Arts.
She is a member of a trio named La Diva, along with Maricris Garcia and Aicelle Santos, in which she sings as a soprano. She is also a current cast member of the weekly variety show Party Pilipinas.
Born on November 15, 1989, Jonalyn is the eldest of 4 kids from Marikina. She started joining singing contest on an early age. She has won first runner-up in "Birit Bulilit" of IBC-13 as a child and in "MTB Teen Pop Star" wherein her winning piece was Mariah Carey’s Never Too Far. Growing up, Jonalyn, much like any aspiring singer, admired Mariah Carey, Regine Velasquez, Whitney Houston, Kyla, and Beyoncé. Viray cites Kyla as another idol saying she "inspired [her] to get up there and do what [she] did."
She studied at Valeriano E. Fugoso Memorial School then finished her secondary education at Jose P. Laurel Sr. High School. She then took Bachelor of Music from the Conservatory of Music of the 400-year old Spanish-built University of Santo Tomas, majoring in Classical Voice with minor in piano.
Viray has been noted for her soulful voice, belting prowess, and stunning high notes since her first win in Pinoy Pop Superstar. Viray is also noted for her ability to sing in the whistle register as influenced by Mariah Carey which she has been vocal about being a fan of.
Aside from pop music, she has also been singing classical music, adding operatic verses to pop songs and singing some opera arias, taking the roles for soprano (for which she performed Nightwish's version of The Phantom of the Opera (song)), and coloratura soprano roles, best seen on her performance of Il dolce suono the incipit of the recitativo of a “scena ed aria” taken from Act III scene 2, Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti, which is basically a role for a Dramatic Coloratura Soprano.
She has been vocal that her most admired singers and vocal influences are Mariah Carey and Regine Velasquez, while Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Kelly Clarkson, and Beyoncé are also among the list.
Viray's extensive vocal range extends from C#3(C# below middle C)  and extends up to B6(3rd B above middle C). She has also been noted for having an astounding upper chest range extending to B5 (2nd B above middle C). She currently sings the soprano role in the trio La Diva with Aicelle Santos as alto and Maricris Garcia as Mezzo-soprano. Read more on Last.fm.
