AZUSA, California, July 21 /PRNewswire/ — Meeghan Henry won’t have to wait until she’s 18 to be famous. At 15, the fetching Indonesian-born singer/songwriter is already making a name for herself, creating an industry buzz that puts her on the same path to pop stardom as the likes of LeAnn Rimes and Miley Cyrus. Her newly released single, “When I’m 18,” is currently playing on radio stations all across the U.S. and charting on NMW, FMQB, IMN and beyond.
“I always wanted to entertain people,” said Meeghan, who moved with her family to California before she was five. A gifted straight-A student, Meeghan juggled performing arts school with modeling, television commercials, beauty pageants and voice lessons, always with the full support of her family.
Meeghan’s big break came when she was discovered at California Sound Studios by music industry powerbroker Ronnie King. An internationally renowned producer and virtuoso keyboardist, King is known for his behind-the-scenes work with Mariah Carey, Tupac Shakur, and Snoop Dogg. Also on her production team is C Minor (Fallin’ For You, Dance Wit’ Me) and Terence Davis (Best Friends Forever, Spooky), a collaboration that resulted in her breakout album, “When I’m 18,” on the indie MHI Records label. Rich with pop hooks and catchy lyrics, “When I’m 18,” is already attracting thousands of fans to Meeghan’s music video on YouTube.
An electrifying live performer, Meeghan wowed a sold-out crowd at Beverly Hills’ Saban Theatre earlier this year when she shared the bill with Colby O’Donis, whose duet with Lady Gaga, “Just Dance,” reached #1 on the Billboard charts. She was also recently featured on The Ryan and Randi Show . On July 31st, Meeghan will perform in San Francisco’s Union Square, headlining the annual Indonesian Day parade.
Determined not to let the attention and accolades go to her head, the precocious and preternaturally talented Meeghan keeps her eyes on the prize. Poised beyond her years, Meeghan understands that talent alone won’t get her to the top. “It takes a lot of focus and hard work,” said the Indonesian beauty. “I’m dedicated to making it.” And chances are, she won’t have to be 18 to meet her goal.
Her album, “When I’m 18,” is available on iTunes and in music stores nationwide.
