It’s too easy these days to throw around words like ‘songstress’, ‘diva’ and ‘vocalist’. None of which seem to fit Fatai. The Melbourne born singer/songwriter shot to attention following her semi-final qualification on the very first season of The Voice Australia, and then with a series of viral cover videos including Do You Want to Build a Snowman, a cover from the Disney film Frozen to an entrancing version of Chandelier by Sia. If you look hard enough, you’ll even see Fatai cover some NWA and Justin Bieber.
There is no questioning her work ethic, with 39 performances currently uploaded on her Youtube channel and a swathe of tour dates on her website to boot. Fatai is currently touring the United States, performing a series of sold out shows in Los Angeles, with shows in New York and Chicago selling out fast.
