Sahiba, “p.k.a” Sahyba born and raised in Los Angeles, California is of Indian decent. She comes from a family of talented musicians, starting with her grandfather, father and brother. By the age of 5, Sahyba knew she was destined to sing and dance, finding herself singing at weddings, charity events and cultural festivals. As Sahyba continued to sing traditional Bollywood music while playing the Indian instrument the Harmonium, her passion for music soared and she followed her heart and soon found herself singing to the beats and rhythms of POP and R&B.At the age of 15, Sahyba stands out, with her uniqueness of talents, diversity and enrichment of languages, speaking and singing in Spanish, Hindi, Punjabi and English. Sahyba’s music producer brother Prince Saheb, age 19, was proud of his sister’s beautiful voice and one day introduced her to friend Ray J of VH-1’s hit show, “For The Love Of Ray J”(also known for double platinum single, “Sexy Can I” and founder of Knockout Entertainment.) She sang a tune for him and he was instantly captivated and amazed with the energy of her voice, convinced she is a young super star ready to blossom. From that moment on, doors opened for Sahyba landing her a deal with “Knockout Entertainment”.
Sahyba loves to write music and her first song “Marco Polo”, is due to be released nationally in early 2012. This song was inspired by her childhood days of playing hide and seek and reminds her to find love from the heart. News traveled fast throughout Hollywood when Sahyba’s first music video was being recorded, hitting the underground, provoking a feature story on TMZ as being, “a new big pop star on her way up…” and splashing the media waves with interviews in several outlets, wwww.celebritypopculture.com, www.teenagecelebrity.com, www.hollywoodhawt.blogspot.com, and www.ericzuley.wordpress.com.
Making music is one of Sahyba’s passions in life and she can’t pass a day without singing or thinking of a new song to write. Sahyba went through many trials and tribulations to achieve her dreams. Her hard work and faith paid off while auditioning for both America’s Got Talent and XFactor. While waiting in line with her mother for over 18 hours, her perseverance came in handy when she heard, ‘we’ll call you in a couple of months’ and ‘you’re not ready’. Through tears and rejection, Sahyba prayed more and kept her head held high. “I didn’t let my rejections take me down because, I always try to find a way around the mountain.” After overcoming her obstacles, Sahyba was lead to Ray J and signed to Knockout Entertainment, “I never give up and I always try hard and pray.”
When Sahyba isn’t writing or singing, she loves to read English novels, “My favorite subject is English, and when I do get time I love reading novels. My favorite novel is To Kill a Mocking Bird.” Sahyba also dedicates herself by contributing her time to working with charities like the Shoe Box Project and being a positive role model for young girls inspiring them to believe in themselves and pursue their dreams. She wants to encourage young girls to keep their morals, work hard towards their dreams, have confidence, respect themselves and their families. She dreams to sing unique music that is amazing and connects to the heart of her listeners, worldwide. Sahyba is a young, multi- talented musical artist on the road to Hollywood’s new flavor of sweetheart singers. She is ready to share her dreams and passion for music with her audience and states, “Whenever I see my brother making music or my dad waking up early in the morning to go to work, it motivates me to always set a goal, never give up and always believe in my dreams.” Sahyba is grateful for having her many talents, family and managers that believe in her. Currently she is under the management of entertainment veteran George Mc Lemore, foreseeing a long successful musical career. She is definitely true talent!
