Josephine 'Banig' Roberto's first TV appearance was at age 7 when she joined a singing competition becoming the champion for 7 consecutive weeks. She was the youngest and smallest contestant who had a signature growl that caught the attention of the show's viewers; having just lost her baby teeth, she was often teased by the show's host, the late Bert "Tawa" Marcelo, with jokes about the young con- testant still wetting her "Banig" ("mattress" in her native language Tagalog). Since then, the little girl with the big voice now became known as BANIG. By the age of nine, she was already a dominant presence in the Philippine concert scene. Then reached a bigger acclaim when she joined the International Star Search competition at the age of 10. She represented the Philippines and became the first and only Filipino champion and with that, the young performer who strutted her world class talent on stage back home had now caught the attention of the U.S. scene.
Shortly after Star Search, appeared in numerous television shows such as the Arsenio Hall Show, Into The Night With Rick Dees, Maury Povich Show, Super Dave Osborne Show, Good Day LA and AM Los Angeles, sang the Star Spangled Banner for The Clippers vs The Kings NBA Game and continued to release her first U.S. CD entitled "Can You Feel My Heart?" under Del-fi Records. Since 10 years old she has been headlining her own solo concerts, including a concert in Manila attended by half a million people, sold out shows in Atlantic City's Trump Taj Mahal and has staged solo con- certs in prestigious venues such as the Wiltern Theater, Hollywood Palladium & The Roxy Theatre in L.A., Cow Palace in San Francisco, City Center in New York City, San Diego Convention Center and Copley Symphony Hall in San Diego, and many more.
