Meet Bianca Singer

Today we’d like to introduce you to Bianca Singer.

Bianca, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I grew up in Orange County and was always surrounded by music. My dad was an extremely talented Jazz Trombone Player and would constantly fill the house with Jazz, which is where I first found my love for music. My mother was the one who introduced me to Selena Quintanilla, one of the biggest Mexican-American Artists and “Queen of Tejano Music.” I always loved her story being of her being a Mexican American singer trying to make her mark on the industry, HER way. I believe that her story made a great impact on me and where I am today.

My childhood was always filled with Music, how could it not be with parents like that? As a child, I started to learn Piano, Singing, and Clarinet. I was always putting on concerts in my room, watching the Selena movie starring Jennifer Lopez or watching my favorite film of all time, The Wizard of Oz. I didn’t know at that age what exactly I wanted to do, but I knew I wanted to perform, anyway I could.

As I got older, you could say I started getting my ambition and my work ethic. Throughout my High School years, I was playing Clarinet in the District Honor Band, Acting in Community Theatre, Singing in the School Talent Show, Performing in the High School Musical, and Leading the Marching Band as the Conductor/Drum Major. Like I said, I loved performing, anyway I could.

But my love for Acting really blossomed at the very end of High School and in College. I loved telling a story, being a character, investing your time and energy for a beautiful message to be told, or even learned. Acting was where I really found myself and made me make the drastic decision of not pursuing Music and pursuing Musical Theatre.

Musical Theatre had the best of both worlds for me, telling a story and telling a story through song, and of course, Music. I achieved my Bachelor’s Degree in Music Theatre at AMDA College and Conservatory of the Performing Arts in 2017, where I was ready to audition and inspire.

This is where my story really begins.

I began teaching throughout Orange County with subjects such as Instrumental Music, Dance, Musical Theatre, and Vocal Coaching. I wanted to get involved in teaching and coaching because I knew Arts Education had done so much for me and it kept me motivated to keep auditioning.

As I began my series of auditioning for Musical Theatre projects, I noticed there was a similar pattern happening. Almost every production had casts that were all white actors, or mostly white actors. I auditioned for an exotic Gypsy, didn’t get it, a white woman got it. I auditioned for a misunderstood teenage daughter where the mother was a Puerto Rican American Actress, didn’t get it, a white woman got it. Called back for a quirky ensemble character, didn’t get it, they wanted the ensemble to look the same, White. I was told many similar phrases, “You’re too funny to play a lead” “You’re not lady enough for a character like that” “You are very talented, but Thank you Anyways”

This inspired me to create and feature my 15 min. Original Cabaret in ‘Authenticity and Bad-Assery: Cycle 10’ (Directed by Kathryn Lounsbery at Rockwell Stage and Table). I finally got to sing and talk about what it’s like to be a brown girl, pursuing the Industry of Musical Theatre, as well as my life of an Artist.

This experience really lead me to become an Actress for TV and Film and to represent the young Ambiguous Women of the entertainment industry that have a story to tell. Especially being an instructor to so many young girls from different backgrounds, I wanted to be an important role model for them and strive for a better future for girls and young women in order to inspire more yet to come.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The first thing that comes to mind, “Trust in the Process.”

That is and always will be my mantra. Nothing great can come easy, life just doesn’t work that way.

I was waking up at 4:30am to work as a Fitness Trainer, then going to teach Instrumental Music to High School students, then rushing to Audition last minute, doing it, then teaching Musical Theater to kids, then back to sleep to wake up at 4AM again. That’s the sacrifice to live the dream, right?

It didn’t matter if I was tired, got no sleep, had only 3 hours to memorize a scene, get ready, and drive. An Audition is an audition, and that’s part of the job.

Through all of those struggles as well as the struggles of being a Young Ethnically Ambiguous Actress, the only thing I would tell myself, “Trust in the Process”

There is a reason I am working and working, there is a goal in mind that can be achievable, all I have to do is Trust.

We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I am a Mexican American Actress currently based in Los Angeles, CA for TV/Film. I am represented theatrically across the board by So Cal Talent Agency and Managed by TBK Media and Co.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
Work Ethic and Attitude is everything. I think it is a perfect combination that goes hand in hand to accomplish anything. These characteristics have really helped me with all of my goals and all of my accomplishments I have been able to achieve and it strives me to do more.
