Waseelah, 18, was raised in Walsall and performed at the Walsall Town Festival, and more recently at the We are Walsall Unity and Diversity event at The Crossing.

 

She says

My music is faith based using ideas that I’ve learned through studying my religion and life experience.

I’m a classically trained musician and have been song writing for six years now and also produce my own music. An album of my own making will be available soon.
