As promised, OSKP wants to do a special dedication for the lovely winners of the 2017 OSKP Awards. Next up on the list is the charismatic Ailee (Amy Lee).
This Korean-American singer continues to wow fans year after years with her performances. In 2010, she moved to South Korea after her uncle’s connections captured an audition slot for her. She amazed the recruiters and joined YMC Entertainment shortly after.
Prior to her debut, she worked on various projects, including Wheesun’s track “They Are Coming” in 2011 and “Catch Me If You Can” by Decipher and Jay Park. In 2011, she also performed “Halo” on Singers and Trainees, stealing the audiences breath away! Her powerful vocals were impossible to hide, even then!
In 2012, this vocal powerhouse released her first music video “Heaven”. Ailee released the song, written by Wheesung, on February 9, 2012 featuring Gikwang of HIGHLIGHT. Unlike when she performed “Halo”, Ailee’s voice was far more subdued in her debut. The soft, almost delicate tones were a completely different side of her that fit beautifully.
Over the years, she’s graces fans again and again with her beautiful voice. In 2017, she took it a step further with the original sound track, “I Will Go To You Like The First Snow” (첫눈처럼 너에게 가겠다). The single was featured as part of Goblin.
The beautiful track was released on January 7, 2017 for fan consumption, and despite it not initially being paired with a music video, it soared up the charts. On January 12, 2017, just under a week after release, she received a Perfect All-Kill! Following that, on January 19, 2017, she received a Triple Crown!
Ailee also made her U.S. debut under WestSide Entertainment. Her stage name, A.Leean slightly resembles her Korean stage name! Her debut track “Fall Back” came with a beautiful lyric video.
Congratulations to this incredibly powerful woman for her win for Best Female Solo Artist of 2017 in the 2017 OSKP Awards! She took the voting polls by storm and absolutely dominated over her competition!
We look forward to her voice gracing our ears in the years to come.
