Wed, 03 Jul 2013 12:38:30
Today's Take Aim opponent is Manika, a teen pop diva who toured with One Direction. She was up for anything and we are CRUSHING on her. Her energy just jumps off the screen, doesn't it? You need to bookmark her website, since a lot of cool stuff will be posted there soon. Find out what.
Twitter-size your bio -- 140 words or characters, if you want to be technical, of everything we need to know about you. Go!
Oh my gosh!!! In just 140 characters?? I don't even know where to start! There's so much I want to say and...OOPS I think I ran out of room already... LOL!
If you were not doing music, you would be...
I can't imagine a life without music...even if I wasn't able to do it as my career, music would still be a big part of my life. I would definitely be doing something creative...probably writing.
Any non-music hobbies, skills or talents?
I wrote a children's book when I was 15 and donated all the money from the books I sold to the ASPCA Animal Shelter! I also love helping out others in any way I can. I noticed that so many of my fans ask me how get into music and pursue their passion. So I decided to show them EXACTLY HOW it is done! I am working on a step-by-step course that lays out exactly what to do and everything I have learned in my music career. I will be posting that to my website soon! ManikaOfficial.com. And it will be FREE!!
Tell us a writing or recording story about "My Way," something we'd only know since YOU told us! Share an insider's detail!
Musicians know HOW MUCH work goes into EVERY LITTLE DETAIL of their songs. When we were mixing the radio mix for "My Way," I was on the live mix broadcast for about 10 hours, tweaking little things to make it sound just perfect. I spent about an hour just on fixing the two-second echo/fade on the little twinkling effect at the very end of the song. Most people don't even notice it is there... but I was OBSESSED!!!
Come clean -- One Direction were your tourmates. What are they REALLY like?!
They are truly super cool guys. I actually kept a diary when I was on tour with them and just got permission from the boys and their management to release it. So I will be posting it to my website ManikaOfficial.com soon!
