SONGSTRESS

Asia Dreams - - WHAT'S HAPPENING -

Abright star to watch, Mi­ranti Yassovi Amalia – bet­ter known as Yassovi – is blessed with a great voice and singing tal­ent. The happy-go-lucky young lady was only 24 years old when she was dis­cov­ered on the 2014 In­done­sian Idol tal­ent show, mas­ter­ing the mu­si­cal genre of jazz with her sul­try voice.

Be­fore get­ting her big break, Yassovi had plenty of time and op­por­tu­ni­ties hon­ing her skills at wed­dings and other events. Dur­ing her au­di­tion for the pop­u­lar TV tal­ent search, mu­si­cian Ahmad Dhani, who was one of the judges on the show, was so im­pressed that he asked her to do a duet of the song “I'm in the Mood for Love” right there and then.

Yassovi has also had the hon­our to per­form at Java Jazz – In­done­sia's most prom­i­nent jazz event – in 2008 and 2013. Since then, Yassovi has launched a sin­gle ti­tled “Aku Ini Punya Si­apa”, a re­make of the late In­done­sian songstress Jan­uary Christy's 1987 hit.
