WHO: Our Next Up Artist of the Week is Vali. Originally from New York, this urban-pop singer was born to perform! Vali started out singing & dancing for her family and school mates through musical theatre. That passion eventually landed her a gig as a back-up dancer with rapper Nitty's crew. On a flight home from a show she sat next to Benjy Grinberg from Rostrum Records, who is now her manager and the rest is history!

For the past year Vali has been recording with producers that work with artists such as Alicia Keys, Beyonce, Black Eyed Peas & more. 

WHY: Vali recently released the official music video for her latest single "Dimes" ft. Wiz Khalifa! 

FUN FACT: Both Vali's mom & dad are classical musicans and she learned how to play music at the age of two, before she could talk!

SOUNDS LIKE: Fergie meets Rita Ora.

Each week we like to play a game with out Next Up Artist and with Vali the game is called "Dime Piece or NOT MINE piece!" Find out what Vali thinks about a man with a small dog in the video below!
