Annika was born in December 2005 and has always had a knack for carrying a tune. At 2.5 years she was singing Once Upon a Dream from Sleeping Beauty , quite well for her age!
At 3 yrs, she took preschool piano where they learned movements and rhythm . The teacher suggested she repeat the course, but instead she took a year off and began ballet and tap at age 4, which she enjoyed.
At the end of her 5th year, Annika picked up piano again and progressed very well. 3 years later , at age 8 she was playing a grade 6 level Royal Conservatory, piece, Fur Elise.
Just turned 6, she sang "You Belong with Me" by Taylor Swift, at the Christmas recital, several songs at the Festival of Performing Arts and 2 songs at the Kamloops Idol.
At 7 she entered all the same events, public city events during summer, sang solo in the Santa Clause Parade, and Oh Canada at numerous hockey games . Rolling in the Deep was her song at Christmas recital, on her 7th birthday!
At 8 she entered all the same events, continued hockey games anthems, as well as football anthems and half time shows, and sung Oh Canada at the Canadian Brier. She added Jam Band, where she learned to sing and play piano in a band.
Annika continues to perform in talent shows and music festivals, a pop/rock band, and is now enjoying writing her own songs!
Annika hopes to make a career of her natural talent in music, as soon as she can!
