Junior Siahna Im’s life would change forever when she auditioned for The Voice on NBC and three chairs turned on September 21st. She chose Pharrell Williams, one of the four celebrity coaches after giving a stunning performance singing the song Fever by Peggy Lee. Im made it to the knock out rounds before going home.
Now, Im is at it again with her new EP, which includes all original songs. Throughout her career, she has been performing cover songs, and she is excited to get out of her comfort zone.
For months now, Im has been working on creating this new EP, and has put her whole heart and soul into it.
Im wants to cover a lot of ground with this EP; each song has a different meaning that she wants to convey. For example, in the song “Warrior,” Im wants to empower people, “What’s Wrong With Me” is for when a listener is feeling sad, and “Untouchable” is a love song.
In the next couple of months, Im is excited to have the opportunity to go on a mini tour with a violinist named Svet who appeared on “America’s Got Talent.” The two of them will be traveling to Ohio, Michigan, Colorado, and even doing a couple of shows in Washington. This opportunity will give her more exposure.
Throughout the rest of the year, she plans to promote her new EP and even hope to start creating new music.
The Voice helped Im begin her music career, she said, “Being on The Voice has been great exposure and has connected me with so many amazing people! I consider singing to be my career and just like any job, it is good to have a resume. The Voice has been the first stepping stone to all the things I hope to add to my resume and I am so excited for what is ahead for my music career!”
