Sharon Mathai, known professionally by her surname, came bursting into the limelight after she made it into the final ten on US television show "The Voice". The singer, whose parents hail from Kerala in South India, dazzled the judges and audience alike with her unique and beautiful sound.
Coming from a family of medical professionals, Mathai was encouraged to focus on her academics, gaining a scholarship to study nursing at Texas Woman’s University. However, music was always a big part of this singer’s life; she started singing at church events at the age of only 3, and trained in jazz during her childhood. It was only after seeing how much potential their daughter had in the music world, that Mathai’s parents began to fully support her decision to take music seriously, instead of just as a hobby.
Now, the talented 20-year-old is gearing up for the release of her first EP! The project consists of seven original tracks by Mathai, which is nice to see, as she has primarily been releasing covers thus far.
