Honolulu born Jasmine Trias was a finalist on the television cult hit American Idol in 2004. She was cheered on from Hawai'i and also grew a following throughout Asia. Here she is greeted by Philippine President Arroyo.


Trias' appearance on American Idol had grown into a cult-like phenomenon upon becoming second runner-up in the competition. She has won millions of fans in the United States and millions more in foreign countries where the show was aired: Australia, Germany, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, among others. Manila Times newspaper captured the mood of her ancestral country in an April headline, "Everybody Wants Jasmine." During the American Idol season, hundreds of internet fan sites from over a dozen countries were established in several Asian and European languages.

Managing Director of Honolulu Ben Lee summarized the mood in Trias' home state of Hawai'i by saying, "Jasmine has enough votes in Hawai'i to become governor or mayor easily." Lieutenant Governor James Aiona, in his capacity as acting governor, declared Jasmine Trias Day by executive order.

KTLA, a news station in Los Angeles for The WB, called Jasmine the most successful Idol alumni from season three, beating winner Fantasia Barrino, runner-up Diana DeGarmo, and early favorite LaToya London.

To end her whirlwind visit to the Philippines, dubbed "Jasmania," she met President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo; and she headlined tours in Manila, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Guam in 2004.

She moved to Los Angeles, California to kick-off her professional singing career. Before returning to American Idol, an entourage of hysterical and screaming fans, groupies, and supporters plagued the city's Sunset on the Beach.

Jasmine was a part of the JC Penney and Seventeen Magazine "Rock Your Prom" Fashion Show. She performed in Springfield, MO and Glendale, CA in March 2005.

She is also currently releasing a CD-Single for Pizza Hut and Taco Bell entitled "Flying Home" and it captures her feelings of returning to Hawaii after months of working on tour and on her album.

She has sponsored McDonald's, Smart Telecommunications, Happee Toothpaste, and Bench Clothing. She has made television commericials and billboard ads for these companies in the Philippines. A promotion at McDonald's restaurants in the Philippines offered a meal dubbed the "Jasmine Trio", which consisted of a Strawberry Float, Fries, and the McDonald's exclusive Love Ko 'To CD-Single.

She has even done various commercials in Hawaii discouraging smoking, drinking, and drug/meth use.
