From the TED stage to NBC The Voice, Sonia Rao uses her music to uplift and soothe, and as a means to work towards social justice. A queer, Indian-American, Forbes praised Sonia’s politically charged song “Louder” for galvanizing the AAPI vote in November’s election and raising awareness for Stacey Abrams’ Fair Fight Action. Sonia has also been invited to speak and perform at Microsoft, Disney, Soho House, IndieGoGo, and many others. The raw and emotional quality of her music lends itself well to the screen, and after having her songs featured on more than 35 television shows, Sonia was named BMI’s Spotlight Indie Artist and Buzzfeed’s Asian American Artist to Watch. Most recently, she was featured in the book ‘My Morning Routine – How Successful People Start Every Day Inspired,’ alongside Arianna Huffington and Marie Kondo. Sonia plays violin, piano, flute, guitar, and ukulele, and lives in Los Angeles.
