Career

Singing

Aditi commenced her YouTube channel on 29 August 2010. However, her singing journey commenced when she joined some musicians from One World College of Music and they began singing as a band. She talked about that experience and said,

 It was interesting, it was with some of my friends: a singer and flautist and a bassist, guitarist. We all contributed with a bunch of songs, so it wasn’t just my songs. I think it was a bit more pop-oriented, but I can’t really put a finger on that. I don’t really get the genre thing, anyway.’

she uploaded her first singing video on 22 February 2017 which got her overwhelming traction on YouTube; after which she built a decent follower base. After this, she received plenty of cover requests but she turned them down saying,

If somebody asks me, I just smile and go, ‘Haha, yeah that’s a nice song’. I only do things when I really feel like it.’
