They are young, talented and attractive- and they are hot on the music charts. The recording artistes featured here are setting the pace for today’s contemporary music. In recent months, each has released a debut recording that has launched him or her into the stratosphere of success and stardom.

Each was exposed to music and started singing as children, each went through ups and downs before hitting the big time and each made an audacious debut amid a flurry of buzz in the music industry. To top it off, these rising stars are more than just singers, they also write music and lyrics, play instruments and several have tried their hands at producing. And all are living their life-long dream of making it big in the recording industry with great endorsements….
