At age 16, Saschali left home to move to Montreal determined to pursue her dreams to become a singer. She started off by working in a bar, closest job that was near entertainment industry. “I think the music industry and the bar life go hand in hand, giving me the advantage of meeting people who were like me – a starving artist – or people who made music or produced it,” she said. Striving to find new connections, she would hop at each opportunity when there was an event at a club. She started by being vocalist to DJ and Comedian DJ Sammy for a few years, performing with him at Canadian Music Week in 2002 and Hip Hop Forever 2003. She still felt the pull for something more.
Looking up to Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston, Sascali strived for what they had and continued searching for ways of making her dreams come true and be like her idols. In 2005, she takes the opportunity to go perform at Akon’s Hitlab Showcase, where she scored highest alongside Pamela. Following the showcase Akon signed her to Kon Live and is currently working on an album. Her fist single Addicted To The Beat is released in 2010.
Here is a video of Addicted To The Beat Live at F1 Festival 2010.
