Shakira Lea Fauser is a 19 year old singer/songwriter from Whyalla, South Australia.

Shakira Lea is one of 2 recipients of the prestigious "Whyalla Recording Scholarship" which offers young original artists from regional South Australia the opportunity to audition for - and then win - a professional recording and distribution package valued at over $10,000.

Shakira Lea will record her original song called "I MISS YOU" which is a powerful ballad written during a time when a friend had suffered the loss of a child.

"Music is my life. Itís always been a way for me to express myself and itís such a comfort to me. Itís always been an outlet for my emotions and helped me overcome some of the hardest things in life" Shakira Lea said.

"Most of my songs are based on my life experiences or those of the people around me. Iíve written songs about being bullied, feeing alone, being different, suicide and baby loss. I feel like writing a song about some of those topics is a great way to express emotions, and can be a way for other people to relate to topics which are sometimes confrontational".

Shakira Lea has recently performed at a charity event raising funds and awareness for the Children's Medical Research Institute in Australia.
