Meet The Team: Fitta
Hi, my name's Fitta Putri Andryan.. Yes, I know it has quite an inappropriate meaning in Norway, I clearly am not proud about it but I'll just go on and let it slide. By the way, in Bahasa my name literally means "healthy", it was given by my parents in the hope that I would become a healthy girl.
Tell us a little bit about yourself... where were you born, where did you grow up, married with children?
I was born in Cirebon, September 15th, 1991. I spent my childhood in many different cities as I follow my father's duty as a medical doctor. Currently, I'm living in Bandung, West Java.
Do you remember the first CD/cassette (or even vinyl) that you bought?
My first cassette was Original Soundtrack of Titanic, I was just in elementary school. I really admire a song titled "My Heart Will Go On", and I started to sing it even though I knew nothing about English, let alone its meaning. From there, I was introduced to many great artists such as: Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, etc. They all are irreplacable divas in my heart.
What are your favourites genres and era of music?
I admire soul music. I had ups and downs in life, and I feel that soul music has always been my dear friend in my hardest times. Recently, I like to listen to and learn R&B music. I think that 90's is the greatest era of music, there are so many songs that wholly reach my heart, such as: "How am I Supposed to Live Without You?", "Everything I Do, I Do It for You", "Vision of Love", etc.
Who would you say are your inspirational people in life?
My father is my inspirational hero. He show me how to treat people generously, humbly, patiently and to always greet people with smile. And I believe every person I've met, in a mysterious way, has inspired me, either as a blessing or a test.
You won the last season of Vocal Edge... do you have any advice for the contestants?
Just give it your best. There's no second chance for a first impression, so give it your best from the very first time. Open your mind to critiques and to the judges words because those will help you advance. Sing with your whole-heart. Never underestimate your competitors, be humble and show your best self.
One final thing... Michael Jackson or Madonna?
I prefer MJ. A lot of his songs are inspirational, so is his life story.
