About Esmeralda Padilla-Gould

Esmeralda Padilla-Gould hails from the prominent showbiz Padilla clan in the Philippines.  She emigrated from the Philippines to the United States of America with her immediate family in 1996. While still acclimatizing to the new culture, Esmeralda soon joined the church choir and mixed with the community while performing every time the opportunity presented itself.  Being influenced from an early age by her family’s popular entertainment status, she found herself entertaining Las Vegas crowds through her passion for singing.

Esmeralda has always wanted to bring pride and prestige to her Padilla clan, and winning the title of Mrs. Asian Las Vegas in 2014 has started a string of events that constantly make this dream a reality. She has inspired the younger generation, as well as mothers like herself, to get involved and reach for their own dreams no matter how “unreachable” their goals may appear at the time.

Esmeralda clearly remembers that “uprooting herself from the loving and comfortable arms of family, extended family and childhood friends in the Philippines” to the seemingly concrete Jungle of Las Vegas presented a myriad of challenges and obstacles, especially when she got married and blessed with a son.

She always had to make selfless decisions in favor of devoting her energy and available free time to be productive with her family. Those years helped shaped Esmeralda into being a humanitarian at heart and is very passionate about being involved in her community. She was formerly the President of Las Vegas Spring Valley Lions Club, as well as the President of Wellness Enhancers International Foundation.

In 2017, Esmeralda aspired to a new path in her now familiar entertainment industry, later being invited by the popular Vegas-based Global Asian Network, ACTV to become a TV personality, newscaster on Asian News, host-producer of Music Asia, Culture Clash, Music Planet and VegasVibes Junction a.k.a. VegasVibes.

The VegasVibes Junction TV show is all about the music, pageantry and live production scenes in Las Vegas, the Entertainment Capital of the World.  Reporting about what’s groovin’ and brewin’ in those 3 areas of concentration was very challenging initially, but as more and more activities were streamed live or zoomed or even done via delayed video transmissions, Esmeralda was able to not just survive but overcome and expanded her show’s coverage, even attracted bigger names in the industry. VegasVibes Junction is being distributed in local and global platforms including but not limited to ROKU, KODI, AMAZON FIRETV, BINGENETWORKS.TV, YOUTUBE, VIMEO, WCETV, SAMSUNG SMART TV, LG SMART TV, IOS, ANDROID, CHROME, FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM, SATELLITE AND CABLE TV PLATFORMS, PZAZ.TV, HEROGOTV.COM AND EVEN LOW-POWER TV CHANNEL Las Vegas KGNG 26.8.
