For Frida Roos, StarCentral Magazine’s Female YouTube Artist of the Month for June 2013, heart is just as important as talent. Her inspiration for this mindset is Canadian singing powerhouse, Celine Dion. The 21-year old Swedish singer/songwriter admires how the megastar helps others when she can. But Frida is more than just a singer, she is also a budding fashionista! Her friends have come to rely on her for outfit advice as well as doing their makeup and hair. For such a multi-talented young lady, the future is certainly full of exciting possibilities!

What do you enjoy most about performing?
I love how my audience and listeners really appreciate my singing and perhaps bringing some happiness in their life.

The time when I sang along with Shirley Clamp on the stage was certainly the most memorable performance. The way we hit it off with the audience was incredible and writing autographs sure was fun!
