Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I have started from an Albanian popular audition show “Ethet” 15 years ago. I have been a finalist there, thus the big success I had that time, made me continue sharing my talent and feelings through music. Working with the best musicians at that time made me more professional in music and now I have a successful national career as a singer and producer.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
I have lots of stories, but one of them is when I sang for the first time, my official song for the National Football Team in the stadium area in front of more than 20.000 people. So excited to listen to how they sang my song and sharing love. Just amazing!
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
There are two simple tips: working hard and not giving up. That is the key, even though you can have failed in career, get up, don’t look back, and run!
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
In primary school, my music teacher learned me the notes on the piano. I started to repeat them at home and updated some melodies in my keyboard, this way I sang these melodies and he was amazed at what he saw at me. I was the best student in music so he motivated me a lot to continue doing that. I am so thankful for what he did for me, and here I am.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I have participated in lots of humanitarian concerts, bringing people in one place, paying tickets for charity. Also, I have used my success by different speeches to my audience for human love, to believe in themselves and in their abilities, to work, and not give up.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
The most relevant quote which is my favorite, says: “I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career”. This number is too big to share all my missed shots – LOL. Only one of them is when I have had a small audience from that I have expected during a performance many years ago.
