Stracie Angie Anam (born 18 August 1990) is a Malaysian singer, who rose to fame after winning the sixth season of Akademi Fantasia, receiving 43 percent of over 3.8 million votes. Her debut album, Aku Stacy, was released on 9 March 2009.[1] She also known as "Malaysia Dancing Queen"

Biography[edit]

Stacy was born in Kota Kinabalu, to Anam Bayar and Agnes Kallos. She studied at St. Michael Penampang Secondary School. Due to her family's financial problem, she had no choice but to drop out of school at the age of 16 when she was in Form 4.[2] To support her family, she became a singer in local clubs.

Prior to her audition for AF6, Stacy tried out for other notable singing reality shows, such as One in a Million 1, and also Gang Starz in which she teamed up with her brother, Camellus De'lleli Anam, to form a group named E-voke. However, she only made it to the semi-finals before they were booted out.[3] Her decision to audition for AF6 was derived from her mother's suggestion as soon as she turned 18.

Stacy was also given a full scholarship to continue her studies in Limkokwing University Of Creative Technology. She is currently continuing her studies in diploma of music and art, and began her first semester on February 2010.[4]

Akademi Fantasia 2008[edit]

Stacy competed against thirteen other contestants to win Season 6 of Akademi Fantasia. The judging panel often harbours her performances with praises every week for being consistent, which implied her as the front-runner of the season.Ramli M.S., the academy principal of AF6 complimented Stacy as a loyal student who is very serious in learning something new. According to him, Stacy is always focus during each lesson and applied all the lessons that she learned during her performances on stage.[5]Throughout the competition, Stacy remained at top three when the voting session was closed at the end of every concert, with four collective highest votes. Before the finale concert, three out of four media reporters predicted her to be the winner of the show.[6] At the end of the finale, the prediction came true when she was crowned as the sixth winner of the show, beating four other students, with a vote of 43%.
