Dubai girl signs major record deal after impressing Jessie J
Ever since sharing the stage with Jessie J at RedFestDXB in 2014, people have taken notice of local singer Esther Eden Fernandes. In fact, record bosses have taken notice, too, which has led to a record deal with Universal Music MENA.
The 17-year-old Dubai-based singer first made headlines after she performed for Jessie J during the superstar's visit to Al Diyafah High School. Esther performed an original song called Is This Love, and Jessie was so impressed that she invited the teen to join her on stage for a performance at RedFestDXB infront of 10,000 people in Dubai.
Esther also has a YouTube channel where she frequently uploads covers of songs, including Amy Winehouse’s Valerie and Rihanna’s Stay.
Now Esther is working on her debut album. She told Gulf News's Tabloid! that even though she regularly performs down-tempo pop and acoustic music, her album will also feature electro dance music.
Congrats, Esther! We can't wait to hear it.
