Meet Kiana Kanika, a splendid singer, and actor serving as an inspiration for those who are determined to follow their dreams



Nothing in this world is as precious as the talent we have and possessing a spirit of passion and determination to work upon it. Not many people have the patience and required effort to achieve the ultimate goal they have always dreamed of. Many people are quitters and the ones who strive to work on their passion can achieve the luxurious side of life.

Meet Kiana Kanika, an exceptional singer, and actor admired by many for her knowledge and talent in whatever she does. She spent the early years of her life chasing after her passion for singing. She loved singing since she was a child and throughout the years, she discovered her love for singing only grew deeper with time.

As a child, she used to fantasize about a life where she is performing live and people are cheering endlessly. She knew she had the talent to work for her dream and then decided to experience everything in a rather professional way and started taking singing lessons, discovered the elegance of different genres, and started listening to singers across different genres.

As she grew up, Kiana started listening to songs from other genres and languages and was highly interested in and influenced by many artists, her favorite being Miley Cyrus. Kiana always wanted to do live singing. As her love for music became more refined and dense, she decided to pursue it in a rather professional manner.

As an amateur, she began performing live at corporate events and various live shows. Kiana made her debut as an actor in Dev Raaz Sagar’s song ‘Tu Chand Hai Mera’. She has recently collaborated with talented artists in industry for her debut EP, for which she has not disclosed the name yet but will probably release further details by the end of summer this year.

For the upcoming EP, Kiana have made 4 songs. The music for the EP are produced by music producer and sung by Kiana. A heart-touching depiction of different real-life scenarios, the duo is hopeful that the audience will give a lot of love and support to them.

As she decided to pursue singing as a career option, she surely came across many difficulties, including the uncertainties she had to face initially. Her determination and passion for singing and acting brought her this far in life and she is thankful for every decision she made as she was in the process of building the foundation of her career.

From being an amateur to a singer who is admired by many people, Kiana Kanika has always shown a positive approach to everything and has maintained a learning attitude ever since she decided to follow her passion.
