Many people who attend performances by Fe De Los Reyes are amazed at her endless energy & ability to switch from funny girl to broadway singer, prancing across stage while simultaneously breaking into dynamic dance, all without missing a beat (unless, of course, that's part of the comedy routine).

A multi-media marvel, Fe began her career in 1979 as a member of Music & Magic, the Philippine's premier showband in the 80's, credited with highly successful shows in Manila, the Asian circuit & North American cities. Among renown venues she’s played are Carnegie Hall, MGM Grand, San Francisco Civic Center & Shrine Auditorium. While staying true to her Filipino roots, she reaches out to a diverse world audience, enthralling crowds from an intimate 200 to 20,000 strong.

A graduate of Ateneo de Manila University in the Philippines, she divided her time with studies, the Glee Club & singing backup for Kuh Ledesma, who became a top recording star & “Pop Diva”. After graduating & earning a degree in A.B. Economics, Fe joined Kuh's back-up band, which came into its own as Music & Magic. After seven years of immense success, the group dissolved in 1986. Members chose to launch solo careers.

Fe's body of work stands out as exceptional & exciting. Inspired by several artists, she infused her own Filipino brand of humor to claim a style that's uniquely her own. Starring in several feature films & television shows in the Philippines, she exhibited high professionalism, genuine creativity & exemplary discipline. Other areas of passionate devotion include acting & drama coaching. She is fluent both in the Viola Spolin & Eric Morris methods of acting.

Arguably the Philippine's top female singer-comedienne, she’s a parody paramour, who in 1993 left her flourishing showbiz career & home in Manila, to come to the US, searching for a sister she had never met, starting a family of her own & pursuing a dream of making it in America. Along the way, Fe contended with US Immigration. Those trials are given new life in her original Musical "Amerikana ...Made in the Philippines”. An ever evolving production, it showcases the courage to raise awareness on challenges faced by fellow immigrants — an especially relevant subject today. Among obstacles faced head on, was her lapsed status in the 90’s. In a dramatic real-life twist, Fe found an unexpected audience in the US government, who in 1995, granted her permanent residency in the US, as a person of Extraordinary Ability. She became a citizen in 2002.

Fe also starred in the award-winning Filipino American film THE DEBUT (2000, Columbia Tri-Star), playing Tita Alice.

An ongoing project is Fe’sbook - a humorous take on a topic of truly planetary proportions. A collection of spiels, spoofs & song parodies in typical Fe fashion, it analyzes the social networking phenomenon. Staged in several cities, including San Francisco, Phoenix, Los Angeles & New York, it continues to intrigue.

A perennially prolific artist, world traveler & family woman, Fe continues to do what she loves best.…conjuring forth joy & laughter to rise from within the hearts & bellies of those blessed to behold her bounty of artistry
