Pakistani/American artist Aneesa Sheikh has a GRAMMY on her mind as she plans her takeover as the music industry’s newest pop princess. At 20 years old, the young artist has created a raw and honest pop sound, amassing over 100,000+ streams on Spotify, and her music played on the top 30 stations in Australia. As a triple gold medalist in the United States figure skating Association, she grew up skating to various music genres. Her passion began at the age of 8 years old when she was inspired by her sister ice skating to Santana’s, “Black Magic Women ''. This inspired her to learn classical and electric guitar and join her local youth choir.
Former Miss Michigan Teen USA and current Miss Grand Pakistan, Aneesa leverages these platforms to elevate her nonprofit, "Music4M.I.R.A.C.L.E.", focused on music therapy. Currently, Aneesa is developing her first EP and is finishing her degree online at the University of Michigan to learn how to market and manage her music endeavors.
