However, the road to success did not come without hard work. Anjali joined a woman’s chorus after graduating high school. To further hone her musical talents, she hired a vocal coach who is trained in Opera. Even though the polarity exists between this type of musical form and the type she currently performs, Anjali attributes much of her vocal prowess to the education she gained from learning Opera.
Along with her musical gift, Anjali also has a keen relationship with animals. Growing up in a household full of pets led her to study Animal Conservation at UC Berkeley. Specializing in Marine Sciences, Anjali started a non-profit organization called Jaws & Paws, whose mission is to spread awareness for the conservation of endangered species. Currently, their attention is focused on sharks, polar bears, and tigers because each of these species are keystone predators that maintain a healthy balance in their ecosystems. Their importance within this system is a key reason why Anjali and the rest of the team at Jaws & Paws work diligently to bring these species’ decline to the attention of the government, media, and people at large. Furthermore, Anjali has not only given her time to this cause but also has opened up her wallet. All the proceeds from her upcoming album and EP will go directly to the non-profit. She even goes by the moniker Anjali World, a branding decision she made to shine a light and spread awareness on a global scale for an issue she holds very close to her heart. Anjali’s latest single is called Nobody and features the rapper Tyga. She will be releasing an EP in February followed by her first studio album shortly after.
