Zee Avi - international star in the making

How good is Malaysian artists? Can they compete and prove to the world that they are in the same league as other various artists from this atas angin nations? Well, so far we don't really have one, any singer that well known in international level.

If we are going to have one, that will be Zee Avi. She seems to be competitive and confident with her outstanding showmanship. Well, that what I can see from her performance last 3 weeks ago in one of the chapel in Philadelphia. She has her own clan of fan here and they know every single bit of her song's lyric including her Manglish song, which they sang along all songs together with her. Impressive.

In action of her simple and entertaining performance. She has a good communication with the audients too

Zee Avi posted a video of her first song on YouTube for one of her friends who had missed her first performance in Kuala Lumpur. The friend convinced Avi to leave the video online even after he had seen it, and soon she received positive feedback. This inspired her to put more videos on YouTube.

After being featured on the main page of YouTube, she was discovered by Patrick Keeler of The Raconteurs, who passed the link to Ian Montone, the manager of The White Stripes, The Shins, The Raconteurs, and others. Montone passed her music on to Emmett Malloy, who signed her to Brushfire Records, record company which is partly owned by Jack Johnson

Avi's song "Monte" was featured in the second season finale of Private Practice. Discography Zee Avi (2009) Her debut album hit #130 US Billboard Hot 200 Chart and #2 US Billboard Top Heatseekers Chart, and sold 6,000 copies in the United States in its first 2 weeks.

Not bad 'ey? Anticipate her next album and wish her all the best for her future in the global entertainment adventure. She just got the x-factor to success.
