No wonder Joie has such a strong passion for singing and music - both her parents love music and singing as well! With their continuous encouragement and support, Joie has been singing since she was a young girl. Inspired by the videos she sees online of musicians singing, she too decided to upload her own videos.

Besides her talent for singing, she expresses herself in various other ways. “I love dancing, drawing, taking pictures, writing stories and painting and stuff like that”. She even plays other instruments besides the guitar, such as the drums and “a little bit of piano ” she adds. Like most artistes, Joie would get nervous when there is a large audience before her, however it's a different story when she sets her foot on stage - “when I get on stage, I don’t get as nervous.” She shared with me that being on stage is her motivation to always keep performing.
“It puzzles me, but I love being on stage so much! So that’s why I keep performing.”
Joie carefully selects the songs she will cover, putting much thought into the process, “If I like a song and I think I won’t destroy it, I cover it.” Coupled with her wonderful talent, she knows what types of songs are best suited for her voice. She is of a young and tender age, with a very powerful and yet soothing voice, I’m sure she hopes to develop her talent further as well as spread the joy of singing to the people around her.
