“Where words fail, music speaks.”
― Hans Christian Andersen
“Perseverance is failing 19 times and succeeding the 20th.”
I've always loved music since I was young. I'm always singing, listening to, or writing music. My roots come from Indian classical music. I initially started loving & learning music through my mom, who is a professional Indian classical (carnatic) singer and teacher.
As I found my own way into music, I started to take a liking toward musical theater (MT) when I entered middle school. I also played French Horn for around 4 years (I started in middle school)!! In MT, I found a new way of expression on the stage through singing and acting. I explored new acting and singing styles/techniques, trying to fit into different characters. I have learned so much about performing through MT. (It also helped me break out of my shell!!) Some musicals I have performed in: Tarzan: Ensemble, The Little Mermaid: Flotsam, Dracula: Lead Ensemble, Mary Poppins: Mary Poppins, Crybaby: Mona Malnorowski (Hatchet Face) , Hello Dolly!; Ensemble, The Wedding Singer: Lead Ensemble, Anne of Green Gables: Diana Barry , and Sweeney Todd: The Beggar Woman.
Though I thoroughly enjoy MT, my true passion is singing and making music to inspire and change the world. I would like to help people through music by putting my story out there. (hopefully people will relate :)) I think music can make people happy, sad, angry, lonely, etc. It has more power than many people realize. I want to put something positive in my listeners' ears and hearts.
I have been singing for many years and have performed at many places, but I would still like to keep going till my story is heard by many people! I think this industry is definitely hard to stay in, but I'm still going to take the next steps in order to make an impact on the music industry.
I am also always looking for opportunities to improve and expand myself, so I can always put the best version of myself out. Music has a special place in my heart, as it does to many other people, and I'm willing to work as hard as I can to change people's lives through MY music. :)
One of my biggest inspirations is Ariana Grande. I love her music and how she presents her voice in her songs. I would like to be as big as her one day. I also love these artists: Lady Gaga, Dua Lipa, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Beyonce, Britney Spears, The Neighborhood, The 1975, and many more....
