SAARA was born in a small town on the West Coast of Finland, and spent her early childhood living abroad—in both Texas
and in the UK—before moving back to Finland at the age of six. While it was her voice and love of performing that started to turn heads back home, it was SAARA's sense of humor—specifically her uncanny knack for languages—that ultimately drew her sudden and surprising international attention. Four months after posting her viral videos on You Tube, SAARA moved to Los Angeles and became the first Finnish recording artist to sign to a major label in the U.S. To date, her YouTube channel boasts more than 34.7 million views and 308,000 subscribers.
