ABIR is a featured artist on Cash Cash’s current Top 40 hit “Finest Hour,” but that’s not stopping her from getting some solo attention from the record. The talented singer and songwriter reveals a brand new acoustic video, which sees her performing the song live backed by an orchestra.
23 year-old ABIR has been named on of Billboard’s “most exciting new voices,” a testament to the soulful pop tone that grew from a childhood spent listening to jazz and R&B. Her father owned a limousine company where he played the same four icons on repeat for his clients: Etta James, Sarah Vaughn, Celine Dion and Whitney Houston. ABIR has been direct support for acts like Alessia Cara, Bob Moses, and Anime, while partnering with Clinique and Beats by Dre. Adding to her roster of impressive career endeavors, she has also played shows at NYFW with Fendi and Made.
ABIR writes with an honest pen explaining, “The goal with my music is to inspire and encourage young people like myself to find their voice and embrace their identity.” The authenticity in this statement is as raw as the acoustic version of “Finest Hour,” accompanied by overwhelming string ensemble and gorgeous piano that elevate her stunning voice.
In the clip, ABIR captures the spotlight with her undeniable powerhouse vocals, making for an eargasmic performance.
