Mr. Piers Morgan, a hard to please judge of the popular NBC show Americas Got Talent, said to the EriAm Sisters “You are the future, you are the next Destiny’s Child, you have got incredible voice”. Sharon Osbourne said “right now, there are no girls like the EriAm Sisters in the music industry” while David Hasslehof said “you are the most talented kids I have ever seen since the beginning of the show”.
Before becoming Americas Got Talent Semi-Finalists, many asked “how it was possible that such a big voice can come out of a little girl”, referring to Haben’s voice on YouTube videos. Indeed, Haben and her sisters possess voices that are so controlled and mature, you would think your eyes were playing tricks on your ears. When EriAm’s single “Diary” was first played on Clear Channel radio 105.7FM in Alabama, many thought it was Rihanna’s newest single. Yes, the song the sisters wrote was a smash-hit and made it to NUMBER 1 on the radio playlist, outperforming established artists. However, it is the incredibly matured and controlled voice that made people think this could only be Rihanna.
The progressively POPular new group EriAm Sisters consists of Haben (14), Salina (17) and Lianda Abraham (18). “EriAm” stands for Eritrean-American; the talented and diverse trio wanted a name that would highlight the uniqueness of their cultural makeup and international aspect of their journey. The EriAm sisters come from a musically and culturally diverse family. Their parents were born in an East African country named Eritrea. As for the group, Lianda and Salina were born in Amsterdam while younger sister Haben was born in Seattle.
Since the age of two, the sisters have been belting out songs in more than one language. It wasn’t until Haben was seven that their musical gifts were noticed at their school. Haben’s music teacher told the parents that Haben is an exceptionally brilliant singer, actor, and performs with grace and ease of a seasoned professional. Similar comments were flowing for Salina and Lianda. Needless to say, stars were born!
For the last two years, Haben, Salina and Lianda have wowed crowds with their stage presence and extraordinary performances across the nation. EriAm’s fan-base is rapidly growing and has viewed their recorded performances and profile over 3,500,000 times on the popular YouTube.com and Myspace.com websites. They appeared on National TV, radio, magazines and have performed in various celebrity events, including a VIP event at the Disney world. The talented trio have received a KEY TO THE CITY of Renton as recognition of their extraordinary talent and mucsical contribution in the Community.
“We work perfectly together and even gave nicknames for each other, I am the VISION, Lianda is the COMPASSION and Salina is the DETERMINATION”. Haben and her sisters are diligent; they write their songs and choreograph their moves meticulously. The sisters have completed their first project with some of the most respected producers like, Andrew Lane (High School Musical), Adam Messinger, John Silva (High powered ent.), Kevin Gardner (E-40), Nicholas Cooper (Vocalcornerstore.com) and DJ Freestyle who is the official DJ of Timbaland and Justin Timberlake.
Although, the big voices of the young ladies readily take on the challenging works of mega divas such as; Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, and Beyonce, they are extremely humble and eager to learn! “We want to be the next big thing”, proclaims Seattle’s little darling. Big shoes to fill for anyone, but the sisters are determined and on the right track.
One thing is certain, the EriAm Sisters have begun to soar and are destined to bling.
