"My mother has told me that as a baby, I used to crave two things-food and music. So, indeed music has been a fulfilling element in my life," the teenager said in an interview to Gulf News.

Her first public performance was at the Guru Nanank Darbar Gurudwara in Dubais Jebel Ali, following which she started getting more appreciation for her vocal talent.

"A lot of encouragement from my family, especially my maternal grand mum, inspired me to start official training in music.

"I would like to be a playback singer and also do some shows to get more audience appreciation," said Shirene, who admires the singing talents of Beyonce and AR Rahman.
