A storyteller, Zahidah writes about the unspoken stories of the people she has met before. Their happiness, struggles, turmoils and inspirations are showcased in the lyrics and melodies of her songs. Not wanting to be just a passive advocate of music, she decided to go one step further by embarking on a musical journey as a singer/songwriter in 2009 and has not looked back eversince.
Within a short period of time, Zahidah has managed to garner the attention of many with her songs and live performances. Zahidah's most notable performances include being the opening act for Copeland in their farewell tour in Asia, as well as Youtube twin sensations, Jayesslee.
In July 2011, Zahidah's song collaboration with The Lion Story, Lagu Teman, had won the award for Best Local Song (Singapore) during Anugerah Planet Muzik 2011, an annual award show for the regional Malay music industry.
In a bid to challenge herself as a musician, Zahidah entered 987 The Next Big Thing, a singing/songwriting competition organized by Mediacorp's 987FM, and was crowned the Champion.
Zahidah has just released her debut EP entitled Ethereal. The 5-track EP includes her first Malay single, Malam Ini. The second single, First Love, is currently on airplay on local radio stations.
Understanding the grey area of music genres, Zahidah does not encourage the concept of putting any labels to her music. Instead, she strongly believes in enjoying the music as it is.
