Born Marie Christina Digby, the 28-year-old American singer-songwriter became famous for her cover of Rihanna's "Umbrella" in 2007 which became a hit and was featured on MTV's "The Hills" series. Since then, she was able to record 3 studio albums in the US.

Marie Digby was in the Philippines in 2009 for a one-night concert and got back in the country 3 months ago to do shows and appear in events in the Kapamilya network. Perhaps, she'll be staying here longer since she has to record and promote her upcoming album still.
