I discovered 13 yr old Shaakirah Nazim-Harris on our Facebook page because she decided to sing happy birthday in my comment section in response to a post I had about Zendaya’s birthday. Shaakirah later shared with me that she is a huge Zendaya fan and could not pass up the opportunity to sing to her.
After I heard her voice I knew I had to send her a message to ask her, and her mom’s permission to share her voice and video here and on social media.
Check out her rendition of the #Sogonechallenge:
Beautiful right? Shaakirah has been singing for as long as she can remember and I do not know about you, but I can imagine how it must feel to be 13yrs old, to have a dream, a ton of talent and just needing to be heard.
Supporting young Shaakirah did not get even a second thought from me, I knew from the first note she sang. Support Shaakirah on Instagram here and share this post with your friends.
