Today we’d like to introduce you to Vanessa Béjine.
Hi Vanessa, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
Well, my story is still being written, but in a nutshell, I have been singing since the age of five. It has always been my passion. I grew up listening to music icons such as Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, and Mariah Carey, so they are huge influencers of mine.
Once I graduated high school, I started going to open mics and singing cover songs. I met a lot of new people doing this and was soon connected with a great producer who brought me to Atlantic Records to record my very first single Addicted.
From there, I started to develop my writing skills as an artist and continued to write and record as much as I could.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Haha…nothing worth it is ever a smooth road. Whether that be love, business, relationships, health, etc.
Sometimes it’s hard to know if you are on the right path.
You try so hard for so long and invest so much time, energy and money but often do not see results for a while and it can be very discouraging.
A lot of us are trying to find our purpose in life and we often chase our dreams because that is what drives us and we are passionate about, but when that journey gets hard and obstacles and hurdles arise, we start questioning ourselves and if we are on the right path, and do we have what it takes to make it.
It happened more times than I’d like to admit, but it is all about the climb to the top. That journey is what helps build and strengthen us for whatever it is we are chasing. I’ve learned a lot from this industry. A lot of tears, doubt, betrayal. It’s a devil’s playground, but as a child of God, I have a stronghold.
As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
As a singer, I’d say I am most proud of my growth and resilience.
Growing as an artist in my writing skills is something I am most proud of. Looking back at how and what I used to write about versus today’s writing skills is a vast improvement. So much more depth, emotion and pain behind my music today.
Being in the entertainment industry, you definitely need thick skin.
Not everyone is going to like you or your music and you need to be ok with that. There is not one person in the world who is liked by everyone.
Being able to bounce back if a door is closed on you or someone talks down on you or your music will teach you strength and resilience.
Is there anyone you’d like to thank or give credit to?
Support is huge in this industry, as we all know. We cant make it without support and we often do not have the motivation or drive without the support.
There are many people who have been supporting me since day one and I couldnt be more grateful.
Huge shoutout to producer Ryan Ferro who has been with me from the gate created my very first single and still going strong with me today. My mom and brothers who have also been rooting for me.
