At age 3, she had informal voice lessons with her father, Juanito. At 4, she started playing the piano. Fitri joined countless amateur singing contests in Indonesia. “I started competing when I was 3. Sometimes we would travel six to seven hours so I could join contests,” she said.
At 5, she enrolled in music school. At 6, she started belting showstoppers like “My Heart Will Go On” (videos of which were posted on the internet in 2011).
In 2011, she joined popular Indonesian talent search “Super Wani 2,” she related. She won, besting 19 other finalists, with the Indonesian ditty “Andaikan Kau Datang Kembali.”
