Diana Villamonte just turned 23 and she is poised to skyrocket to fame in both Vallarta and beyond in the coming years. A native of Panama, this beautiful young woman already possesses all the attributes of a rising star in entertainment. Her singing is absolutely breathtaking. Her stage presence is phenomenal with just the right balance of confidence, poise, dance, movement and audience interaction.
Diana has studied music, ballet, modeling and theater since the age of 10. In 2014, she won the Karaoke World Championship in Stockholm, Sweden. She also starred in a reality television show in Central America as a result of her growing fame as an entertainer.
Act II Stages has hit the jackpot with Diana Villamonte and they have earned that privilege. Diana was the runner-up on ‘The Voice of Vallarta’ last year. Danny Mininni, Act II’s owner, recognized Diana’s tremendous potential and had his entertainment producer, Alfonso Lopez, put together two shows starring Diana this winter. With mentoring from both Danny and Alfonso and the tremendous talent of Diana Villamonte, ‘Motown and Beyond’ and ‘Tina Turner, Simply the Best’ have been hugely successful shows this season.
And it gets even better! Diana’s mother, Yudi Villamonte, is also an incredible singer and entertainer. These two look like sisters, but they are in fact, Vallarta’s newest mother and daughter entertainers. Yudi sings like a top pro and commands the stage with ease, confidence and joy. And the good news is that not only has Yudi guest starred with Diana in her shows this season, but Act II is putting together a “Selena Tribute Show” that will debut in June starring Yudi. This bilingual show, about Selena, the top selling Latin singer of the 90’s, will definitely appeal to residents, expats and tourists, alike!
Diana’s shows, ‘Motown and Beyond’ and ‘Tina Turner, Simply the Best’ will continue through at least the month of April at Act II. In the Fall, Act II will open their new season with a ‘Whitney Houston’ show starring Diana Villamonte. Diana adores the music of this super star and is just the right talent to pay tribute to Whitney Houston, which is no easy task. This will be a ground breaking success for both Diana and Act II as they launch their new season later in the year.
‘Motown and Beyond’ is performed every Thursday night at 5:00 pm at The Red Room and features Diana performing the great hits of Motown artists like Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin and The Jackson Five, along with disco and pop artists like Donna Summers and Whitney Houston. It’s a phenomenal show that thrills the audience in each and every performance!
‘Tina Turner, Simply The Best’ delivers the hits of one of music’s most iconic stars. Performed every Friday night at 7: 30 pm, this show features a full band and Diana’s amazing tribute to this musical legend.
Get ready Puerto Vallarta. Diana and Yudi are about to put P.V. entertainment on the map like we’ve never seen before. Diana Villamonte is headed for entertainment stardom and you get to be part of it all at Act II Entertainment when you experience her spectacular shows!
