Growing up in the fun-loving and musical culture in the Philippines, Arlyn Valencia has stayed true to her heart and followed her musical dream. The fulfillment of this dream was "interrupted" when she focused and first pursued a fulfilling career in medicine. Having had accomplished that, and still very active in that profession, she then embarked on an ambitious CD project in collaboration with musicians she respects and admires, not only because of their musical genius, but also because of their passion for what is honest and beautiful in life.
Secret Love is not just a collection of songs that mean a lot to her . Each song has a story to tell, has vignettes and images of life as they occurred to her, each song conveyed with such passion and honesty. As she will always tell you, "This is my life, this is me and that's all I got."
