We know Anggun, now World Food Program (WFP) ambassador, has proven herself as one of world’s respected female singer. Although she only started her international career errr.., I remember it was sometimes in 1997, she had long been known as Indonesian lady rocker, dated back in the 80’s. And surprisingly, her name is still here and there in music industry.

Now, Indonesia has another diva in the making, she is Meeghan Henry. Meeghan Henry was born in Indonesia and was mainly raised in California by her mother. When she was young, she already knew she wanted to be an entertainer in someway. Her mom was very supportive about this.

Meeghan first started out modeling and doing runway in New York, but then she moved into TV. She started doing little commercials and small parts in TV shows, but she decided that she didn’t want either of those. That was when she realized that she wanted to be a singer. She would always sing in the car and at home, and could never stop.

From there, she participated in school plays and rock whatever part she had, as long as she got to sing. As her voice grew, her talent didn’t go unnoticed. In elementary school, she was then named the voice of her school and sang the National Anthem for the annual basketball and baseball games they had.

After that, she also won a beauty pageant for Little Miss San Dimas, and got the opportunities to sing for the city several times.

Going to a performing arts middle school also boosted her. She sang for occasions the school had, too, such as their annual gala, award ceremonies, and the talent show. Along with her talent, she is a straight A student who loves being part of the school activities such as being in leadership. She is now attending a performing arts high school where she is class president and going in and out of the studio, working on her first album, so keep your ears open.

Meeghan will soon release her first album, produced by Ronnie King, one who has orbited Mariah Carey, Tupac Sakur, Snoop Dogg, etc. Stay tuned on GNFI!
