Meet Lisa Mishra, The YouTube Sensation Who Just Recorded A Song With The Veere Di Wedding Girls
Lisa Mishra went from 107,000 to 110,000 subscribers in less than an hour. And if that sounds crazy, you’ve got to know why. Lisa Mishra was invited to sing a reprise version of the song Tareefan from the movie Veere Di Wedding. It’s all going to sound too good to be true. And it probably is.
On 19th May, 2018, Lisa, a musician with a soulful voice, put up an Instagram video singing a mashup of the song Tareefan and Let Me Love You. She’s seen singing the song, and strumming her guitar in the post. The video caught the attention of Sonam and Rhea Kapoor, and they double-tapped. But, they didn’t stop there. They invited Lisa, all the way from Chicago, to sing a reprise version of the song. Now, a video featuring the four actresses and Lisa has just been released. And it’s already garnered plenty of views!
Lisa has been singing for a while now. She even edits her own videos, and has been doing this since she was 13. In 2000, she left India and settled down in Chicago. And while she was always humming tunes, she did her education in Economics and Religion, so it was all good by Indian parent standards. She would use her commute to work to improve her singing skills, something that obviously served her well.
By now, millions of people already know her, and are Googling her name. And that is the power of social media, and talent. But you’ve got to have talent. Like real talent. Oh wait. Not always.
Now you know of her singing talent, but here are a few things about Lisa Mishra you probably didn’t know about her.
She embraces her desi side!
She’s not the kind to refuse the temptation of good food.
Lisa loves animals though she doesn’t have a pet of her own. Yet.
Feminism is really close to her heart!
I'll be real with y'all- 2017 has been one of my worst years. I think it's easy to get lost in the meticulously curated world of social media and put forth only the best versions of ourselves. But this year came with heavy losses, harsh rejection, crippling self-doubt, an overwhelming feeling of purposelessness, body image issues, the lowest lows and only isolated highs. So when @toriamia sent this my way I immediately saw in it all those vulnerabilities and anxieties. And I wanted you to see them too. Because I and my issues are real, just like you and yours.
