Biography

Toa Baja, Puerto Rico (1997 – present)

Dayanara Torres Delgado (born October 28, 1974 in Toa Baja, Puerto Rico) is a Puerto Rican actress, singer, model, and former Miss Universe. Dayanara released her first and only album, Antifaz, in 1997.

Torres won the crown in the Miss Universe pageant held in Mexico City on May 21, 1993. During and after her reign as Miss Universe, she became an ambassador for UNICEF, traveling through Asia and Latin America in support of the organization. She created the Dayanara Torres Foundation which has provided scholarships to poor students in Puerto Rico and the Philippines. In 1994, she went to Manila to crown the new Miss Universe and during the ceremony, she sang “A Whole New World” as a duet with Peabo Bryson.

After the 1994 Miss Universe pageant, Torres landed several movie roles, made television appearances, and received offers to endorse products. She became a celebrity in the Philippines and lived in the country for five years. She also appeared in more than 10 movies, including Hataw Na, a film with Filipino actor and singer Gary Valenciano (who is half-Puerto Rican). During that time, she also filmed Linda Sara (1994), a Puerto Rican film directed by Jacobo Morales in which she was paired with fellow Puerto Rican singer, Chayanne. She also became a staple figure on Philippine television every Sunday on the show ASAP Mania, which gave her the title “Dancing Queen” because of her impressive dancing skills. During her time in the Philippines, Torres learned to speak Tagalog, the main language of the country and she had a four-year relationship with Filipino actor Aga Muhlach. Torres and Muhlach first met on the set of her first Philippine movie, Basta’t Kasama Kita (As Long As I’m With You).
