At just 17 years of age, Kamasean was the youngest contestant in Indonesian Idol history when she participated in this national competition in 2012. She has since gone on to become a Youtube sensation and has secured thousands of followers on Twitter and Facebook.

Blessed with a magical voice that transcends all musical genres Kamasean is also an accomplished composer, and plays several instruments including the piano and guitar.

In addition to raising much-needed funds for a worthwhile cause, another aim of Kamaean’s appearance was to empower local children and help them realize their full potential. Prior to the concert, Kamasean hosted one hour exclusive “Sharing Session” for aspiring young singers and musicians.
