Radha Cuadrado (born December 13, 1976), popularly known as Radha Tinsay or simply as RADHA, is a Filipino singer and songwriter best known as an original member of the international hip-hop group Kulay (previously known as "Boom") and was also part of the group "14-K". After leaving Kulay, she pursued a solo career and performed in theater and lounge shows.[1] She later starred in the TV series Diva on GMA 7. [2] Most recently, she took part in the first season of The Voice of the Philippines.


Radha's influences include Aretha Franklin, Mary J. Blige, Stevie Wonder, Billie Holiday, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Chaka Khan, Prince, Al Green, and she frequently covers their songs in her shows. She started her singing career at the age of five. Radha has a dramatic coloratura mezzo-soprano vocal range.


She had several stints on television and stage but her big break came at the age of fifteen when she joined as lead singer of the internationally acclaimed group Kulay, which won countless awards in the Philippines and went on an international tour all over the UK, Germany, Italy, and Denmark which put them on the dance charts in local UK radio and Billboard. In 1999 Pepsi Philippines launched their ad campaign called "Ask for more" and chose Kulay to be their endorsers.

She was also a member of the group 14-K with Jeffrey Hidalgo, Tony Lambino and the late Tenten Muñoz.[3]

In 2001, Radha embarked on a solo career to pursue her own personal musical style. She has since written songs for other local artists as well as for her own solo album. She also took part at the Himig Handog song contest's JAM: Himig Handog sa Makabagong Kabataan edition as an interpreter for the song entry "You Can Make It Happen" written by Dodjie Simon and Ellis Simon.

In 2013, Radha successfully auditioned for the first series of The Voice of the Philippines, with two coaches offering to work with her. She eventually chose to be on Lea Salonga's team. She eventually advanced to the live-shows and managed to reach the semi-finals.[4][5]
