On being selected in Round 2 of Avon Voices, 21-year-old Aisha Ali, who currently works as a Karaoke Jockey and performs at various live shows around Bangalore, says, “Avon Voices is a great platform to showcase our music talent and create an identity for ourselves in global arena. I am extremely excited to be selected for Round 2 of Avon Voices. I would like to thank all those who voted for me online in the first round. Without their support I would not have reached Round 2.
 
“It will surely be a life changing experience if I get selected to be one of the top 10 contestants who will get to record with none other than the internationally renowned pop star Fergie. I request all my friends, family and fans to watch my video performance on www.AvonVoices.com and vote for me.”
