Darja “Rise Up”

Based in New York singer-songwriter Darja, has been working hard on her craft for years, making waves on both the international pop & EDM music scenes. Between working on her musical craft and schooling , Darja appeared on TV music competitions, such as Germany’s Popstars in 2001 and ITV’s Pop Idol, based in the UK.  The talented artist went on to work with producer Tony Coutura, followed by earning a degree in International Relations at London’s School of Economics.

Darja blew Simon Cowell away with a performance of Shakira’s track “Underneath Your Clothes,” which led him to making comparison between the two.  Today Darja shares her new single “Rise Up” a story about her journey through life, up to now.

Speaking on the single Darja says:
“I have always been a foreigner everywhere I lived, so I always felt a bit like an outsider trying to fit in. Today I feel like a citizen of the world. I identify with every race and every social class, because I have seen it all, I have experienced the bottom I have experienced the top and ultimately it is all fleeting until you decide to love yourself for who you are no matter what life throws at you.”
