Toni started out in showbiz as an aspiring singer but made her breakthrough on television as a TV host. “Celestine,” her album's title, is also Toni's real name.

 
“I'm really glad that this album was named after my real name because it reminds me of who I really am, of what my core is,” Toni said, who admits her initial plan in showbiz was “just to be a singer.” “Siguro I'm a host who can sing and can act also,” she said.  

It carries the original track, "This Love Is Like," which she co-wrote with seasoned composer and album producer Jonathan Manalo and "Awit Ni Ginny," a song based on her character's name in Star Cinema's box-office hit movie "Starting Over Again," where she starred with Piolo Pascual. She composed it while waiting on the set of the film.

"The songs in my album are more personal and closer to my heart. It shows who I really am as a singer, as an artist," shared Toni, who personally chose to make her real name, Celestine, as the title of her newest album.

"My real name, Celestine, means heavenly. And like my name, I believe that this album is a great gift from heaven. It took a while for it to be finished but God's timing is always perfect. This is the best album I've ever done," shared Toni.

Toni believes that her 10-track album, "Celestine," also shows her growth as a performer. "Having been through a lot in this business, I have learned how to relate more with every song that I record. Now, I have a good grip of what each track wants to convey to my listeners," she explained.

Aside from Toni's compositions, "Celestine" also features original tracks namely "Got You," "Finally," "Sweetest Song," "Oh Boy," "Di Ba Halata," "Kahit Na" (Remix), and the Moophs remix of "This Love Is Like," which is produced by Chris Lopez.
