About Amni Musfirah
Amni Musfirah began performing at the tender age of 10 and was talent spotted by the late renowned composer Iskandar Ismail at the ChildAid Charity Concert in 2008, which was when Amni embarked on her musical journey as a performer, singer-songwriter and composer. She has performed at numerous high-profile events such as the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of Asian Youth Games (2009) and Youth Olympic Games (2010). In 2011, she became the voice and face of Asia’s largest water-light show Wonder Full, attracting over 4.2 million visitors from across the globe. The show was played thrice every night at the Marina Bay Sands to over 30,000 spectators in Singapore up to 2017.
After completing her studies at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Amni has since released three singles titled New York High, Be Mine and Bisik Cintamu, which are available on all music platforms. She is constantly writing and releasing new music and music has always been her source of energy and confidence. Despite her shy personality, Amni has tremendous stage presence and never hesitates to be vulnerable, always bringing her audience into her world. Above all, she credits her family for keeping her grounded.
