who: Nadia Ackerman
where: I live in New York now, though I was born in Melbourne (Australia) to Africaans parents and I grew up in Sydney.
what: I am a singer/songwriter and an artist. I create things in my head both visually and aurally.
why: I did not choose this, it chose me. There is nothing else in life that I want to do. There has never been anything else in life that I have wanted to do. There has never been or will be a plan B.
how: Ummm…How long have you got? How? Well,I just started singing. I found a singing teacher in Sydney when I was 15 and that was the end of it really…or shall we say the beginning of it. I have never been one to sit around. I have taken on every opportunity that has come my way. I have worked really hard and continue to do so. Every time I go to write or sing I act as if it is my first time.
anything you’d like to brag about? I think it would have to be singing at Carnegie Hall with the likes of Sting, James Taylor, Elton John, Shirely Bassey, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, Sheryl Crow, Lenny Kravitz, Blondie, and Mary J Blige. Recently, I also became the singing voice for the new UPS Worldwide Campaign “That’s Logistics”.
