Early life and career
Donnalyn Jereos Bartolome was born in Yokosuka, Japan on July 9, 1994.
Bartolome started posting videos on YouTube when she was 13 years old after moving away from the Philippines. Originally the videos were intended for her friends only. But eventually she began to build a following. She posted everything from makeup tutorials to dance and song covers. She eventually moved to Facebook where her fame really began to grow.
At the age of 18, living in Japan with her family, she met David Hulbert, founder of iDOLTap Productions, who wanted to cast her in a film. Eventually they became friends and together they wrote an independent film titled Big Sister that was loosely based on Bartolome's real life experiences.
She shot to fame after the release of her single "Kakaibabe", a track on the Diary ng Panget soundtrack, and "LM4M", a song produced by Jon Bonus. She released the album Happy Break Up with lead single "Happy Break Up".
She was featured in Jireh Lim's "Magkabilang Mundo" music video along with the late Tado Jimenez, which eventually became the most viewed OPM music video on YouTube after "Gayuma". She was featured in Ryan Bang's video "Shopping", which also features Kristine Santamena, Jayson Gainza, Aiko Climaco and James Reid.
