A Pilita Corrales documentary is in the works.

On May 14, Vogue Philippines announced the production of a documentary on the life of Asia’s Queen of Songs. Helmed by Baby Ruth Villarama, director of the award-winning Sunday Beauty Queen, the documentary, simply titled Pilita, is slated to “map out the life and legacy of Corrales, providing an intimate view into the singer’s impressive seven-decade career and her personal life.”

It will cover highlights and keypoints in the iconic singer’s 70-year-or-so career, such as her rise in Australia in the 50’s, opening for The Beatles in 60’s, winning the Tokyo Music Festival in 1972, and more. Villarama describes the upcoming documentary as “a story of resilience, reinvention, and the enduring power of Filipino music. Pilita’s story is an inspiration, not just for aspiring artists, but for anyone who has ever dared to dream big.”

Producing the documentary is Corrales’ very own granddaughter, actress Janine Gutierrez, alongside Raymond Ang and Chuck Gutierrez. “I’ve always felt a deep responsibility to help preserve Mamita’s amazing legacy and I hope this project becomes another way for younger generations to learn about her story—not just as a legendary performer, but as a woman who defied expectations and truly paved the way,” Gutierrez stated in an Instagram post.

According to Vogue Philippines’ announcement, the documentary is currently in early stages of development with Villarama’s Voyage Studios with no date of release specified yet. Watch this space for updates.

In other news, Corrales recently became the first Billboard Philippines Women In Music Icon award honoree. Jackie Lou Blanco, her daughter, accepted the award on her behalf at the first Billboard Philippines Women In Music Awards, held last March 22 at the Samsung Hall in SM Aura, Taguig. At the end of her acceptance speech, Blanco proclaimed, “We are so proud of her. Hindi lang siya mahusay kumanta, hindi niya lang mahal yung ginagawa niya pero mas gusto niya tumulong at mas gusto niya yung ibang singers na marating din yung narating niya and even more. I am so proud and so blessed that I have a mom na hindi lang kasing galing niya kundi napakabait ng puso at laging gustong tumolong and ishare ang talento niya.

I am so proud and so blessed that I have a mom who’s not only as great as her but so kind-hearted and always wants to help and share her talent.”]
