Sonali’s biggest plunge into music came when she was invited to attend the prestigious Clive Davis Institute at NYU Tisch. There, she was afforded the pleasure of working with some of the best in the industry, like Pharrell, Benny Blanco, and Questlove. While there, Sonali and her classmates created a viral cover of Rihanna’s "Diamonds." After being featured by Ryan Seacrest, the video garnered the attention of Rihanna herself, who invited the group to a show in Newark, where she personally congratulated them on their work.
In 2014, Sonali showcased a dynamic mix of songs on her debut EP, Wake Up. The strength of these tracks earned her recognition as one of the Top 20 Prospects of 2014, as well as a Huffington Post feature for her politically charged "Who We Are" music video.
Now that she’s back with a new sound, Sonali hopes to use her platform to help give another voice to Indian-Americans in the entertainment industry. "Growing up, I never had anyone on screen or in music that I could look up to in that sense, and I don't want that to be the case for kids today,” Sonali shares.
