Mai Myers



18yrs old, Mai Myers introduced herself to the world musically went she dropped her first song "My Love is Real." In this song, Mai talks about the love she has for a boy. But there is someone who is even more dear to her heart than the boy she sang about, her father.  During a conversation with C Liberia Clearly, Mai talked about life without her father's presence.  


"Growing up without my father is hard for me. It’s depressing. The last time I saw my father, I was five. I wish he was here with me and he wish to be here too.  My mother, siblings and I moved to the States during the civil war in Liberia.  Unfortunately, my father left behind.  I always wonder what it would it be like when we meet again. Will I still feel like I felt when I was five? 
When I told my father that I wanted to become a singer, he said he wasn't surprise.  He tried to remind be about the time I used to stand in the tree and sing as a little girl in Liberia.  I just want to see him."  

 The artist spend her days in the studio working on her first album.  "My fans wouldn't be disappointed.  I'm working hard and I have a great team.  My mother is my solid rock.  She supports my career. Matter of fact, she dragged me once to audition for American idol. 
 I'm a very shy person.  To help me get out of my shyness, my mother enrolled me into a music program.  She is amazing.  My manager is doing an awesome job behind the scene. I feel confident and comfortable with my team.  My first time in the studio, I was very nervous but I'm getting comfortable and I'm finding my Liberian voice."
