Putting blush on our cheeks helps bring out our femininity, innocence and sweetness – those are the qualities newly-formed band, Blush, is trying to express with their group’s name. On Thursday, the all-girl Asian pop band that is based in Hong Kong made their debut appearance on national television on So You Think You Can Dance’s (SYTYCD) results show. They are known for opening for Justin Bieber in Hong Kong during his world tour as well as making an appearance in Hong Kong’s Rugby Sevens. Performing their single “Undivided” with Snoop Dogg, the girls showed off their skills in dancing and singing to the studio audience and to the cameras for those watching at home. Their music is described to be “edgy and fun with a unique spin.” The title of their first single represents the unity they have as a group even though they are all from different cultural backgrounds.
Alisha Budhrani is of Indian descent and has an extensive background in dance. She is trained in Hip Hop, Bollywood, Salsa, Belly dance, Hawaiian and many more styles. Similarly, Japanese Natsuko Danjo, or “Nacho” as her friends nicknamed her, has been dancing her whole life. Since she was six, she has been performing twice a year in dance showcases; her dance crew, SpongePants has also placed first in numerous competitions. Angeli Flores from Phillipines found her passion in singing at an early age from her musical family. She started singing when she was eight and won her first singing competition in 2nd grade.
On the other hand, Korean sweetie Ji Hae Lee didn’t discover her vocal talents until she graduated from college. Victoria Chan is from Hong Kong and dancing and singing has always been something she was interested in. She has participated in over 100 productions in Asia, which comes to no surprise considering she has learned ballet, tap, ballroom and Latin and has completed the Junior Music Choir Program at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.
Next week, the premiere of their music video “Undivided” launches so be sure to look out for it. For now, you can watch their live performance below if you missed it! Be sure to show your support to help Blush make it big in America!
