Shakila is a Persian/American vocalist from Tehran.[citation needed] Her dream of being a singer started when she was a young girl.

At the age of nine years old, Shakila’s career began when she was invited to perform on a major television show. It is here that she caught the attention of numerous producers that wanted to turn her into a professional artist. While Shakila eagerly wanted to become a star, she made sure to focus on her education, and limited her performances to talent shows and school competitions.

Through hard work and determination, she completed her studies and ultimately succeeded in becoming a professional performer in 1990. That year, she released her first Persian hit album.[citation needed]

In addition to her passion for music, Shakila also expresses her deep connection with poetry. Using her lyrics, she paints a scene with her voice, which allows the listener to become a part of her journey. Like many artists, Shakila shows her personality through her words and uses poetry to create distinctive metaphors to empower her songs. She holds true to her devotion to spirituality and the values of life that she so deeply holds on to.

Shakila's voice, is a combination of Celine Dion and Witney Houston, with a hint of Nora Jones.[citation needed] She is a Powerhouse vocalist, with a silky smooth lower register, and crystal clear highs.

In particular, she has always taken exceptional interest in Rumi’s poems, which inspired her to sing many of his pieces.[citation needed] She was also the featured artist on the album ‘Operatica-Shine’, which includes two of her own performances, one of them being featured as the Bonous Track of the album.

In 2012, Shakila broadened her horizons by extending her talents to the International market. She released multiple singles such as, “Fall Away”, “El Corazon (My Heart)”, “Xmas” and more. In addition to these singles, Shakila plans on releasing a new World Music, English album in 2015[citation needed].

She also won the Persian International Artist Award, and she is also an official Grammy voting member.[citation needed] So far she has released over twenty Persian albums, which have helped her gain millions of followers worldwide.
