Part Filipina, But Who Isn't Nowadays?

Wikipedia has the following entry on Nicole Scherzinger:

"Nicole Elikolani Prescovia Scherzinger (also known as Nicole Kea) (born June 29, 1978), is an American singer, dancer, songwriter and occasional actress best known for her work as the lead vocalist for the Pussycat Dolls.

Scherzinger was born in Hawaii, to a Filipino father and Hawaiian/Russian mother. Her mother, Rosemary, separated from her father and then moved to Louisville, Kentucky with her German American husband Gary Scherzinger..."

That she is part Filipina and the lead singer of an internationally popular group and now about to release her solo album (Oct. 2007), Her Name Is Nicole--now that's something to be proud of.

My favorite is the Pussycat Dolls' great rendition of an old standard, Sway, which was used in the Richard Gere-Jennifer Lopez movie, Shall We Dance. If you're an avid basketball fan, you probably have seen her and her group in those NBA ads. Of course, Don't Cha [this is the uncensored version which includes an adult expression; there's an edited version], is, um, a terrific danceable piece as well.
