Dua Lipa – Be The One – cover – Sara Loera

A new, fresh talent is Dua Lipa.

Lipa was born on 22 August, 1995, in Westminster, London, to Albanian parents. Her father, Dukagjin Lipa, is a marketing manager who had a side gig as a lead vocalist in a Kosovar rock band named Oda, and her mother, Anesa Lipa (née Rexha), is a tourism executive. Her parents are from Kosovo and had left Pristina in 1992.

She left home at 15.

Dua moved out of her family home in Kosovo to London, to pursue her career in music. “The cooking and the cleaning… that was tough. Stuff like that really made me grow up before my time.”

She went to the same school Amy Winehouse attended.

It was the Sylvia Young Theatre School in Marylebone, London.

Several other successful artists are alumni: Rita Ora, Tom Fletcher, and Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson among them.

When Dua was eleven years old she wanted to join her school choir but was told by her teacher that she couldn’t sing. She’s now a multi-platinum singer, so I think that should be a lesson to us all

So let’s react to Dua Lipa!

Active KTVA Students in The KTVA Singers Forum:

“It’s awesome. The private sections of the forum are worth the price of admission alone. I struggled with 2 different tertiary (university Level) level teachers (6 months each about 8 years ago) telling me my voice just wouldn’t be able to do what i wanted to be able to do and even if it could, the material i wanted to be able to sing would be too ‘Dangerous.’ Absolute rubbish. If you do the work thats laid out in this course, you are golden, I started in March Last year struggling to hit the E4 note in ‘Under the Bridge’ chorus now I can sing this stuff:
Honestly man, you are not going to find a bad review here. The course and this forum completely demystifies every single aspect of great singing. Just be prepared to do the work.”
