Radar Love Record’s co-owner Michael Kensit first discovered the vocal talents of a friend’s daughter … an 11 year old Portuguese Toronto student named Victoria Raimundo. Kensit soon suggested bringing her into the RLR studios to meet with Producer Michael Hanson.
A big fan of Ariana Grande, at only 12 years old young Victoria “Raims” (recently re-named by Hanson for ease of pronunciation) is now a rising young phenom with the vocal prowess of a young Christine Aguilera starting her long journey towards stardom.
In the earlier years Victoria joined the school choir in grade 2 and started to perform at school and church events.
She went on to become a finalist twice at the Long & McQuade singing contest in Toronto and was also a finalist at Hidden Talent and in July 2017, as well as a top five winner on “Mississauga Idol”.
Hanson states “I’m sure there a few 12 year old kids scattered around the globe who can sing with these kinds of insane chops – but I’ve never had one in MY studio before. The speed, complexity and quality of her natural vocal acrobatics are off the hook. I was – and am still – absolutely knocked out. And this is just the beginning…. the tip of the iceberg.”
Hanson now continues to pen dance pop gems for Victoria as they surge forward in the studio … and ultimately out and onward to the world.
Young Victoria Raims is now available on all of the usual Social Media Sources and Distributed globally with Radar Love Records.
