Nikki Gil: Purpose driven
The voice launched by the soft drink commercial is a voice of purpose. By Mitzi Duque-Ruiz
An epitome of wholesomeness" is the image that Nikki Gil says she has to live up to. But to her, this comes naturally. "The challenge though is how to survive the critics who want to prove me otherwise," she says. Still, the critics will have to agree: Nikki Gil is a breath of fresh air in these jaded times for the industry she has broken into.
As soon as the Coca-Cola TV ad premiered in late 2004, the public was smitten with the catchy song, but more so with the charming young woman with her refreshing, disarming smile, singing the blues out of everyone who cared for the difference a sip of the drink offered. Not long after, offers came from recording companies and network giants. The 17-year-old college freshman who says she "probably started singing while still in my mother's womb" had a few support roles in personal care, advocacy, and corporate advertisements, and some bit roles in food and beauty commercials before landing the lead in the soft drink commercial.
But that was as far as her goal in public appearances went. She confesses that her reason for wanting to become a commercial model was simply to find validation for her struggle with a serious acne problem in her early teen years, without actually thinking of anything greater. As for singing, Nikki shares, "I guess you may call it destiny. Both my parents are [into music]. My mom used to be a member of a singing group back in the 80s. My parents met in a church choir, with my dad playing the piano and my mom in vocals."
With just a summer of voice, a few years of piano lessons, and no professional acting classes, the numerous invitations her parents received on her behalf for a shot at the entertainment world just kept coming. "My dad refused. He knew it was not a good place and time for a girl my age to be in, but when the offers kept coming, my mom asked for him to reconsider. She argued, 'What if there is something these professionals see in her that we don't? Why don't we let her try?' After some convincing, my dad finally relented," Nikki recounts.

Anak ni Gary V. nagmana kay Martin!
ABA, anak nga ni Gary Valenciano si Gabriel pero para siyang si Martin Nievera kapag nagsasalita tungkol sa kanyang lovelife. Masyadong nakaka-in love, kumbaga.
Hindi ba't very vocal din kung magbigay ng mga sweet messages noon si Martin kay Pops Fernandez?
Eh, ganu'n din si Gab ngayon kapag ang kanyang girlfriend na si Nikki Gil ang pinagu-usapan. Feeling nga namin, eh, may mga nakatanim na bulaklak sa dila ni Gab dahil sa galing niyang magsalita at magbigay ng mga sweet nothings para sa kanyang girlfriend.
Teka, teka. Gaano ba niya talaga kamahal si Nikki?
"Well, to tell you honestly, I can write a whole book just to say how much I love Nikki and one day is not enough para masabi ko lahat ang nasa loob ko para sa kanya," umpisa sa amin ni Gab.
Wow, huh!At may dagdag pa ang damuho.
"I love Nikki that no matter how many fights and tampuhans ang nangyari sa amin, eh, I will still go to her and plead para maging kami pa rin," sabi pa ni Gab.

Nikki Gil Bares Lovelife!
ikki Gil admitted she had been thoughtfully considering the sincerity of Gabriel Valenciano who confessed recently on national TV his feelings for the upcoming singer–host.
" Oo naman, kung chances rin lang ang pag–uusapan, meron naman . It's just that it's not right naman talaga if I will ask him ‘Nanliligaw ka ba?' But I am enjoying the friendship we are sharing right now because we go to the same church," Nikki told Manila Bulletin in a press conference held for the nearing release of her self–titled debut album under EMI Records.
The 18–year old stunner from the Coca–Cola TV ad fame also revealed the lengths Gary Valenciano's son had so far gone through just to make her feel special.
"When I celebrated my birthday last Aug. 23, he made this video of me. He conspired with my sister who in turn gave him all access to photos from my childhood to present. He used the photos for the video and I thought it was very sweet of him to do that. He also visits me sa house frequently and gives me flowers," she said when asked how Gabriel expresses his intentions.
She added, "We're still on that getting to know each other stage. He's also a very special person because it's rare for a guy of his stature to be that down–to–earth but he is; among other things, he is also God–fearing and very respectful."
However, Nikki did not want to ‘label' anything as of yet, she said. "It's not that I believe in long courtship and neither do I want fast–food type of ligawan , what I believe in is building a strong foundation in a relationship because I've never had a boyfriend ever so if ever I get into a relationship I want it with very strong foundations. For you do you believe that Nikki And Gab is Having A LoVe Affair?

Nikki's First Self Titled Album
Nikki Gil, the girl-next-door we've seen in a cola commercial comes with her debut album now in stores. As one of the most awaited albums we're likely to hear in 2006, Nikki have released her first and self-titled album to see how she will sink like a stone.
Pop and R&B have a stronghold on teenagers and young adults, and with Nikki Gil's 12-track debut album stands out to give the difference among others.Sakayan ng Jeep, claimed to be her first single, is a Lani Misalucha original from the 90's and composed by Bodgie Dasig. This real-life jeepney story dubbed in an R&B beat should scale the charts in no time as it gives the listeners the giddy and youthful feeling to relate in a common love story we experience in a place called sakayan ng jeep.
Lush, dreamy pop alternative, built around sweetly lovelorn lyrics and angelic voice—that is Nikki Gil's brand to look forward to. She will surely give you butterflies in your stomach, a song which makes you think of a particular person or a moment in time, a song which, for some reason, makes you happy.
The Tracks Of The Album Are The Following With The Corresponding Lenght Of The Song.
||Sakayan Ng Jeep(4:30)|
||Let's Wait A While(4:46)|
||Forever Is Not As Long As It Used To Be(4:11)|
||If I Keep My Heart Out Of Sight(2:51)|
||Baby, Now That I Found You(3:45)|
||Answer To My Prayer(4:06)|

Name : Monica Pauline Gil
Nickname : Nikki
Birthday : August 23, 1987
School : Ateneo De Manila
Getting into modeling : I used to do VTRs when I was younger. No one was getting me. I felt rejected so I stopped. My skin broke out too! When it cleaned up, I started again. Then I go the Coke and Sunsilk TVCs right away.
How was your Coke shoot : It was really fun! It didn't feel like work at all. One day rehearsal, the one day for the shoot [in Ongpin]. We recorded the song a day before the rehearsal. The atmosphere wasn't stressful at all."
So it was you who was really singing the commercial : "Yes! I love singing! But my only exposure is in church, We're a family of singers too."
Fave Artists : Jason Mraz, John Mayer and Tamia. I like Disney songs. My fave Disney song is 'Part of Your World'. I don't like rock. I also like Southborder.
Hobbies : I play the piano. I play volleyball. I'm into studying. I graduated valedictorian from high school, so its part of me na. I bake too! My specialty is oatmeal cookies.
UP CLOSE & PERSONAL
Any Collections : Buttons and Candy Wrappers like the colorful Wonka wrappers. The designs are very cute. I keep it in a jar.
Beauty Secret: Well for me,it doesn't really matter how much make-up you put on or whatever you do, if you're not beautiful inside, it will really show. I think it's important to beautify your inner person before anything else. But drink lots of water and don't forget to wash your face always before going to bed.
Describe your style : Girly, conservative but not too balot. I'm not really the jeans-and-sneakers type, but still laid back.
You shop at ? Bayo and Kamiseta. But i'd rather shop in tiangges, like Greenhills. Usually I buy something that's cheap lang.
You like guys who are : In Love With God. Major turn-on. Funny, sweet and intelligent. Someone who can provide for me when we get married. I like guys who are like my dad. My dad is wonderful. I also like cute, tanned, Mexican-type of guys. Not chinito and mestizo.
Would rather avoid guys who are : Guys who are presko, and those who are super duwag. Those who won't take a risk.
You hate it when : My alarm goes off in the morning. I travel from the South to Ateneo every day so I have to wake up really early. It's the worst feeling.
You love it when : Classes are suspended. You get to stay home and eat and sleep.
In the future you are going to : I've always wanted to be a princess, but it's impossible, I guess (laughs). I have many plans for myself , but you know how life operates, you never know in what direction it will take you. I also want to start my own business but on what I'm not so sure yet, but I definitely want to be my own boss.
Guiding Principle : Follow you goals but be sensitive to what you want. Enjoy life!
