Spanish superstar Alejandro Sanz is one of the biggest names in Latin music, and thanks to a Berklee connection dozens of students got the opportunity to perform in and produce a video featuring his latest hit, “La Música No Se Toca.”
Singer/songwriter Emily Elbert was 16 when she decided she wanted to go to Berklee. But where to find the money? All she could afford was burning a few original songs onto CD. But after getting some advice from the scholarship office, Elbert kicked her career into high gear and now she's at the place she considers her "dream school."
Tiwa Savage's life could have taken a very different track. Just a few years ago, the vocalist was working at the Royal Bank of Scotland, after graduating from the University of Kent with a degree in business administration. But music had always been her first love, and when she got the call to sing backup for Mary J.
It's an ambitious plan: earn college and high school degrees simultaneously. Aishu Venkataraman, a violin prodigy who is wowing audiences worldwide with her South Indian classical music, is doing just that. Here at Berklee honing her jazz skills, Venkataraman, however, is decidedly nonchalant and humble about her fast-track path.
