– Lisa Punch
Following her performance on an international stage, Guyanese singer/songwriter, Lisa Punch has vowed to continue to pursue bigger dreams.
The singer, who returned home to perform at the Guyana Festival, was among competitors in the new ABC reality series ‘Rising Star.”
Known locally by the nickname “Knockout Punch” the Guyanese songstress was selected from among 40,000 contestants who applied to participate in the USA singing competition.
She was eliminated from the competition one week ago after she failed to raise the wall, with her rendition of Alicia Keys’ “Girl on Fire.”
However, the promising star says that “bigger and better things,” are in store for her as she will continue to work on her music.
Speaking at a press briefing yesterday, Punch noted that she remains confident in her music.
“Being on international stage was exciting. I had the opportunity of working with amazing people like Michael Jackson’s vocal coach and others who helped me with my choreography and voice training,” Punch said of her experience.
The Brooklyn based-Guyanese said that for years, she has been pushing for Guyanese music to be heard.
She said that performing on Rising Star gave her that opportunity as well as boosted her confidence.
“I saw an outpour of support from my fellow Guyanese. The way in which they came together and supported me during my time on Rising Star is one of the things I am most proud of and I am always thankful for that.”
The artiste who is known for taking on different genres of music and making the songs her own has since launched a self titled debut album “The Evolution of Lisa Punch.”
The US-based Guyanese is currently working on new music under the supervision of her Manager, Mary Brown. Brown is a songwriter, vocal coach and singer, who has penned hits for countless artistes, such as Beyonce (Destiny’s Child), Wyclef Jean, Mary J. Blige, and Trey Songz.
