Actress/Singer and niece to the legendary Basco Brother family, Ella Jay Basco wanted to make a song that speaks out to brown pride and the color of our beautiful golden skin. The song features another powerful voice from Ruby Ibarra who has constantly advocates for being proud of one’s Filipino identity in songs like “Us.” Stream it now on all music platforms.
A few months ago, Ella Jay performed her fun song about her Filipino family at the annual SIPA fundraiser. SIPA stated in the caption, “Dante Basco is a trailblazer for our people in Hollywood, from his iconic role as Rufio in “Hook” to his portray of Prince Zuko from Nickelodeon’s “Avatar: The Last Airbender.” Now the next generation of Bascos take the stage with his niece Ella Jay Basco, who shared the screen with Margot Robbie in “Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn).”
Watch as Dante introduces Ella Jay’s performance along with her brother Darryl J. Basco from our 48th Annual Benefit.
Ella Jay Basco starred in the blockbuster film of Harley Quinn, Birds of Prey in 2020 alongside Margot Robbie in 2020. She has also been featured on shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Veep & Teachers.
