For Color It Red vocalist Cooky Chua, inspiration to start out a band emanated through the Justine Bateman film Satisfaction. Chua was still a higher school college student in 1989 when she shaped Color It Crimson with Barbi Cristi (tempo acoustic guitar) and Maricar Florendo (keyboards), naming themselves after a crossword puzzle idea. Mike Villegas (business lead acoustic guitar), Hank Palenzuela (bass), and Edison Javellano (drums) ultimately became a member of the group, and Color It Crimson became probably one of the most guaranteeing alternative pop/rock and roll rings to emerge through the Philippines’ legendary Golf club Dredd, a wellspring for underground Filipino functions in the first ’90s. In 1994, Color It Crimson released its debut recording, HAND-PAINTED Sky, as well as the LP proceeded to go platinum. A yr later on, Color It Crimson was chosen as Greatest New Artist in the Awit Honours in the Philippines. In 1997, Chua performed Lidy, a Pinoy activist’s wife, in Low fat, A Filipino Musical. Chua received the Golden Tone of voice of Asia honor in Hanoi, Vietnam, in 1998. While her rivals covered tracks from Whitney Houston and Celine Dion, Chua performed two Color It Crimson paths, mesmerizing judges with her wealthy, soulful tone of voice. Color It Red’s mainstream achievement didn’t tarnish Chua’s alternate trustworthiness. In 2000, Color It Crimson released Pop Fiction.
