Myra Sky_2066_CD Cover(1)

Myra Sky first figured out she had talent when she was 7. She developed and honed her singing ability and continued all the way through college with the singing of the national anthem. At one point a contestant on NBC’s The Voice, she has come very far since then. Myra Sky’s music certainly has it all, and her newest single “Question Mark” further demonstrates her ability. Her tempo is peppy, but her voice is relaxing. A combination that will both soothe and incite the listener, and makes for great enjoyment all around.

Cliché: Tell me a little bit about  discovering your passion for music.
Myra Sky: When I was a young girl, I wasn’t able to watch TV a lot. I discovered my talent when I used to listen Mariah Carey’s Music  Box album. I used to record myself in my bedroom, singing with it. I would send that tape to my family in Egypt. The teacher would let me sing in class. When I was around 7-8, that’s when I knew I had a passion for music.

Did getting on The Voice confirm for you that you were in right profession?
The process of getting on The Voice was hard to get on and very long, and when I saw how successful I was, it told me I was doing the right thing.

Speaking of The Voice, what did you learn about yourself on that show?
It  definitely  showed  me  that  I’ve  got to expose myself to as much talent out there as possible. I need to expose myself more to different types of music. I had never seen so many amazing, talented performers and it encouraged me to grow, learn and take in different types of things from other artists.

Tell us about your current music. Is it based on your life experiences?
My entire EP is the story of my life for the past 3 years. I broke down all of the experiences I had in my life when I recorded it.

Talk a bit about your personal goals. For instance, are there any charities or causes that you support?
I’m involved with NY Cares. It’s involved with the homeless, children that have been through abuse/bad parenting. I’ve done a  lot of 5Ks for Girls on the Run, teaching them to learn about each other and love each other and themselves. I sing because my voice is able to be heard so I can change the world. I am inspired to do as much as I can through my career.

Finally, if there was one thing you could change about the world, what would it be?
I would make this world a more loving place. Love is the foundation that will help each other respect each other. Love will make this world a better place.
