Her head of purple locks is a good indication that this young lady has got lots of exciting tricks up her sleeve—and she doesn't disappoint one bit.
Meet Lesha Litonjua, a fashion and lifestyle blogger, vlogger, and musician. At all of 19 years old, she's already nailed a signature electronic twist that gives any song she does a cover of that fresh vibe that's sure to bring on energy and happy feels—sans the cheesiness, and with all the coolness this millennial generation is so crazy about (just look at the graphics in her videos, which she does herself; by the way, as she's also into multimedia, photography, and web design).
Who knew that the "Pen Pineapple Apple Pen" song had any hopes of being hip? In the mash up above, her winning entry for Smart Launchpad, a search for the country's most promising content creators (girl's gonna fly to LA and collab with LA-based a cappella group The Filharmonic), Lesha combines Piko Taro's viral dance hit with The Chainsmokers' "All We Know."
But there's more where that came from—check out some of her other covers that will make you rethink how you define electronic music:
Let Me Love You
"I’ve always wanted to express myself through music. I’m a blogger, I’ve done fashion and lifestyle, but my passion has always been music so I decided to focus more on that starting with posting a song cover of me doing 'One Dance on YouTube," she shares. "I love adding my electronic twist to my song covers because this makes me standout more."
She says that while she likes expressing herself through writing, she enjoys vlogging more even if editing can get tedious. Her advice for aspiring vloggers? "Shoot what you want to shoot. Just go out there, do whatever you want—just upload content and be consistent, don’t let other people's judgment affect you, just take those as constructive criticism."
