Berklee Summer in the CityAmelia Ali
Amelia Sophia Ali was born and raised in Boston, and has a cultural heritage in Trinidad and Tobago, Syria, and India. A multilingual singer-songwriter, her voice and her songs translate the impassioned state of a true artist of the ages.
Her early musical endeavors led her around the world, touring in Hong Kong, Beijing, France, London, Brazil, and Ireland before the age of 21. In the summer of 2007, New York City, Ali graduated from Pace University, and simultaneously landed the opening act for the Hip Hop mogul, Ludacris's bicentennial performance in Pleasantville. For some, sharing the stage with Ludacris would represent a career height, but for Ali, it was a mere stepping stone.
Ali is studying composition and arrangement at Berklee, intending to graduate in 2013 with plans to launch a career as a musical artist, activist, community organizer, and entrepreneur.
