For Fasika Ayallew, The Voice isn’t just the opportunity of a lifetime; it’s a chance to prove to her parents that music is a serious career move.
“My dad is Ethiopian and in Ethiopian culture it’s really looked down upon to be an entertainer,” the 19-year-old from NSW admits to TV WEEK.
“Growing up my dad always told me, ‘You don’t want to be a singer, why would you want to entertain other people when people can entertain you?’”
Instead, Fasika’s father was keen for her to pursue her studies and leave singing behind.
