21-year-old Aisha Ali, who currently works as a Karaoke Jockey and performs at various live shows around Bangalore said, I am extremely excited to be a part of this contest. Avonvoices is providing us with a great platform to showcase our talent as English pop music is fast becoming a rage in India and gaining popularity among youngsters. It will surely be a life changing experience if I get selected to be one of the top 10 contestants who will get to record with none other than the internationally renowned pop star Fergie....

At the conclusion of the program, Diane Warren will be providing an anthem to be recorded by up to 10 global finalists alongside many of Avon Voices celebrity judges.
