"Crisp Clear Voice Over Talent and Jazz Singer"

Mia is a South African singer, producer and versatile voice over artist. She has been working in the entertainment industry since she was 16 years old. She knew she wanted to make it a career and studied music at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA where she graduated with Summa Cum Laude honours in Voice Performance and Music Business. After university, she recorded her first album called "Carry me Home" which was recorded and produced between South Africa, Boston and Holland. It is available on iTunes and other online music outlets world wide. At the age of 24, she was approached by Light FM Lebanon (one of the most popular radio stations in the country) to be the afternoon show host for a new program called "Jammin' with Mia" which airs every weekday between 4 and 7pm. She regularly records voice overs not just for Light FM, but for many other stations in the region.
