Meet our WINNER
Just like any girl her age, she likes drawing, unicorns and shooting stars. But most importantly, Danica is passionate about becoming a great singer.
At the tender age of seven, she contributed her voice to a cinematic cover of Linkin Park's "Shadow of the day" with an orchestration and arrangement by composer Jonathan Galland. Her angelic voice got quickly noticed at music competitions, such as the 2019 World Songwriting Awards, the 2020 International Singer-Songwriter Association and the 2020 InterContinental Music Awards, among others. Danica was also mentioned on the A&R Factory blog as a rising talent to watch for.
In 2020, Danica sang on her second single “Hiyaku”. The song is inspired by the style of Japanese anime and Ghibli soundtracks. In 2021, miss Lipetsky's voice was selected to be featured on the final track of SOLSTICE, the soundtrack album for a figure skating show by touring company Ice Dance International. The performing Arts company employs figure skating champions, World medalists, and US Olympians, with cast members from Cirque du Soleil, Disney on Ice, Stars on Ice, and Holiday on Ice. Besides its worldwide release on all major music streaming platforms, a limited edition was also released as a physical album.
Besides her work as a studio vocalist, Danica can also be heard with the San Francisco Girls Chorus.
