13-Year old Reaches for the Stars

While most young teenagers are busy watching Hannah Montana, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovata singing their way to the top of the charts, 13-year old Nishma Asher AKA Nish is living the dream herself.

This young star is set to release her very first single, ‘Ji Lay’ on Sunday 16th October, just as she steps out on the Main Stage in front of 50,000 people at London’s Diwali festivities in Trafalgar Square.

The debut single, which is guaranteed dance-floor filler, shows off Nish’s linguistic skills as she sings in both Hindi and Punjabi and sees her teaming up with Punjabi rapper Kan D Man and grime artist Rude Kid.

Nish says of her entry into the music world: “This is my dream come true! I’ve known from a young age that I wanted to have a career in music, but never thought it would come so soon. My friends at school can’t believe that I’ve got this opportunity and all want to be in the next video!”

This multi-talented youngster started singing at the age of 3 and gave her first public performance at the age of 6! With only her family behind her and no formal training, she learned to play the guitar and keyboards by watching videos on YouTube!

This super confident little girl has performed in front of thousands at melas, festivals and indoor venues and is now embarking on a journey to take her unique act to a wider global audience. ‘Ji Lay’ is released on iTunes on 16th October.
