Virjilla Joyce

It all started with a nun and a mum with a very good ear – or maybe it was the Filipino karaoke queen within as we all know us Filipinos love to sing! I was 5 years old with an extension cord as a microphone and a big voice.

I have a gift that was given to me to share. From a young age I sang at church, school, the local nursing home and anywhere I could find to sing! After singing at a friend’s wedding ceremony, I realised it was my responsibility to share my songs with others. My mission is to create and amplify raw, soulful, and timeless music.

I’ve ventured down an unfamiliar road that even in my wildest dreams didn’t seem possible. However, I am here to tell you that it all started with a little girl with a big voice, a huge dream, persistence and a catchy hook. I am proof that anything is possible if you just believe and love what you do! The ‘Lady in Red’ was my first original song that came to me in a time of need and it gave me the strength to pursue a lifelong goal of singing for others.



Hailing from Brisbane, MVP are a new band that are blurring the lines of pop music and a cappella. Blending vocal harmonies and percussion with loop stations, samplers and effects, every sound made by MVP is produced by the human voice.

The girls have been making a name for themselves in the contemporary a cappella world, winning awards for their arrangements and original music through AUSACA (the Australian A Cappella Awards)in both 2018 & 2019, as well as being featured numerous times on international radio network Acaville Radio.

2019 has been the girls’ busiest year yet – with two singles out in the world, they’ve been spending the year writing and recording for their all original debut EP, which has seen them collaborating with multiple producers from the USA at the top of the a cappella industry. MVP released their debut EP on November 1st, and is now streaming everywhere.
