4. Kazz Kumar

The trendy Kazz Kumar started her music career with the Sona Family back in 2002. But, it didn’t take her long to break away from the group and take a solo route for herself. We love her because she’s the poster-child for South Asian pop culture! She’s not afraid to take chances and be fashionably crazy, (we’re talking about Nicki Minaj-crazy!). This girl can sing, rap, dress and pretty much do everything a glitzy pop star can!

 

3. Hard Kaur

Believe it or not, Hard Kaur also started out with the Sona Family!  Hard Kaur has gone from aspiring hip-hop artist to one of the top hip-hop playback singers in Bollywood. She has been claimed as “the first Indian female rapper”. With a full-resume of Bollywood films under her belt, Hard Kaur continues to push out striking, hip-hop filled music for South Asian music.

 

2. Nindy Kaur

All hail the female version of RDB! Nindy has added a splendid touch of femininity to RDB’s music and style. She proves that the females can go hard just as well as the guys! Her smash hit “2 Seater” became an overnight sensation and one of the most popular dance/ club tracks in 2011. Keep doing your thing Nindy!

 

1. M.I.A.

MIA

In 2009 she was cited in Time magazine’s Time 100 as one of the world’s most influential people for her global influence. Not only is she a musical performing artist – she’s a visual artist, a fashion designer and most importantly, a global activist. A woman of all trick and trades, who has broken out into mainstream music, exactly why she’s makes the number one spot on our list!

 

Feel like we missed someone who should be on this list?

Whitney Houston: A triple threat talent…

12Feb

POSTED BY

Screen Shot 2012-02-12 at 9.21.31 AM

I’m still in shell-shock over Whitney Houston’s death, I saw the breaking news story come up on my fb timeline. I googled it and all the articles confirmed the worst – Whitney Houston, Dead at 48.  Growing up in the 80s, there were two stars I always looked forward to seeing on the TV and they were Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston. Their songs were truly iconic during that tremulous decade. Whitney had this caliber talent to carry a tune, to the point where most of us would of gone breathless – she could still harmoniously sync to the beat.

I’ll remember Whitney as a triple threat. She could sing, dance and act. As I mention on my facebook, if you are remotely BLESSED with one of those talents it can take you far – but if you have all three – there’s NO LIMITS to your potential. However the demons Whitney faced, like so many of our talented superstars were drugs. She coined the term on the 2002 Diane Sawyer interview “crack is whack” that open a can of worms for comedians to poke fun at her. Right now there’s silence, no one is laughing – all we hear is her amazing vocals coming out of our speakers, TVs, computers and smart phones.

People are suspecting the cause of death had to do with drugs, we won’t know until the coroner report comes out. In my opinion, I think her heart just gave out on her. Dr. Drew talked about addict recovery on CNN, if he had been treating Whitney, he would of advised her to take two years off. In 2010, Whitney told Oprah she was clean, I think she just bit off more than she could chew and it killed her. For those of us who have dealt with drugs issues, whether its our own or family/friends, the rule is take one day at a time. Sometimes planning ahead can lead to one’s demise.

I’ll miss Whitney. But like all great artists, her legacy will live through her music and talent. Be sure to watch the Grammys tonight, Jennifer Hudson will pay special tribute to Whitney Houston.
