Roselle Nava is a multi-platinum female singer in the Philippines and one of the most in-demand divas during the 90s era. She started her career as a part of ABS-CBN's defunct youth-oriented show Ang TV (1992-1997). She became a singer behind the hits like Bakit Nga Ba Mahal Kita, Dahil Mahal Na Mahal Kita, and Mahal Mo Ba'y Di Na Ako. And later in the 2000s when she revived the Barry Manilow song "Somewhere Down The Road" for the Blockbuster Film "Minsan Minahal Kita" which also was included in the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack and her comeback hit with Star Records "Huwag Ka Nang Magbabbalik for the film Ngayong Nandito Ka.
Tagged as little 'Regine Velasquez', Roselle's voice can be classified as soprano as her style is very similar with Velasquez's singing prowess. Her voice captured the hearts of many Filipinos who got lost in love. Regine Velasquez once told to one of her interviews that she really likes Roselle's talent.
Nava suffered from a throat virus that hit her vocal chords - making her voice bigger and no brilliance at all. She was removed from her regular Sunday Variety Show, ASAP, to rest and recover from her vocal illness.
She never appeared again in ASAP (and was removed from Star Magic's Pool of Talents). Her last album with Star Records (ABS-CBN's recording outfit) All About Love achieved the Platinum Status but was never awarded to her.
Roselle moved to Viva Entertainment Agency and signed up for several projects. But VIVA did not commercialize Roselle's artistry as all her albums got no awards and the poor sales performance of her albums made her 'light' dimmer.
Nava served as a Councilor in 1st district of Paranaque City.
She is married to Allen Ford Tan on January 18, 2010 at the Manila Cathedral in Manila. They have two cute sons, Andrei Rafael Nava-Tan and Alejandro Ramon Nava-Tan
