My name is Faiza. I’m 24-years-old and I’m a singer/songwriter. My story is that I am a singer/songwriter from Toronto, originally from London, Ontario. How I got here was I was kicked out of my house for being a wild girl. My mom kicked me out and I moved here when I was 20-years-old. My first job that I had here was at Harlem. I was serving and after serving for a while I actually met my first boyfriend and we dated and he was a producer. He made music with me and the music that I made with him actually got me into this program called the Remix Project. So I did the Remix Project for a year and I met my in-house producer while I was there and we had crazy chemistry right off the bat. Now we work together and we recorded my first project, it was my debut EP, it’s self-titled Faisa. I dropped it in July 2014 and since then I have just been performing and doing shows and collaborating with other artists and trying to figure out what my sound is. Singing is my passion, singing is who I am. I am an artist wholeheartedly. I am a performer wholeheartedly. I’m a creative person wholeheartedly and I could not live without creating. I don’t create for the sake of being known or famous. I create because it’s my livelihood and it’s what keeps me going. I would die if I couldn’t create and I believe that at the core of my being. I love to sing so fucking much.
-Why don’t you sing for me now?
-I would love to sing for you.
-Please do. Give me your best shot.
My love is like the sun—no. That’s not the song. That’s not what I want to sing. You know when you just don’t know? I know…
I don’t have to think about anything when I’m with you.
I can just be, ooh, cause all you ever want to do is be free,
And I like that, no, I love that, yeah I need that.
You accept me for the all, you got me out here standing tall
And you tell me that I deserve to have real love,
You, so true of you.
You’re so different, so different, so different, so different.
Say you really want to be, say you really want to be with me (x2)
Cause I really want to be, cause I really want to be with you.
You’re so different.
Got that thing I can’t deny,
That thing that keeps me up at night
‘cause I just keep replaying you in my mind.
I just keep on seeing you like all the time.
You got that thing that I can’t hide from,
That thing that makes my body numb
Every time you look at me, all over my face you see,
I’m so infatuated with you.
You’re so different, so different, so different, you’re so different
Say you really want to be, say you really want to be with me
‘Cause I really want to be, cause I really want to be with you.
You’re so different, so different, so different. repeats
-Thank you and good luck.
