Anita Sarawak had no real choice. With a famous film actress as her mother & an equally successful film producer father, show business was in her blood from Day One and she was destined to become a star.
Whilst she appeared in a number of movies, her first love was always music and she embarked on her singing career at the tender age of fifteen in Singapore, where she formed a number of bands, performing in local clubs - but always chaperoned by mom. Eventually, Anita was discovered by EMI Records and enjoyed a very successful period, recording hit after hit on a solo basis and also in conjunction with many major Asian artists, achieving the enviable status of Gold Disc recepient on numerous occasions.

Having gained celebrity status in Asia, Anita decided to venture further afield and headed to the United States of America, where she entered into what turned out to be a long term contract with the world famous Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, whom she considered to be her adopted family. In fact, she appeared in a number of rooms at Caesar's with her band American Dream, thrilling hotel visitors and local fans with her electrifying performances for almost 20 years - which in itself is a record in Las Vegas.

Her constant popularity is largely due to her untiring efforts to stay ahead of the scene, and not stagnating, this she achieves by regularly 'pushing the envelope' & reinventing herself. She confides that change can be difficult sometimes but she is determined to continue to evolve as a performer, maintaining a careful balance of classic & contemporary songs, thereby appealing to music fans of all ages.

Probably the most drastic & painful example of this never ending quest for excellence was the renewal of all the personnel in her longterm band, American Dream. She was more than ably assisted in this task by her then-new musical director, Nate Wingfield, whose reputation attracted the very best musicians on the scene which gave her performance a harder edge. This allowed Anita to wow the audiences even more, and was a fitting prelude to her retiremement from Caesar's Palace in 2001.

The decision to retire was a very difficult one to make, but Anita thought it was time to come back home & give her real fans as much time and effort as she could, before finally retiring for good.
Always in demand, Anita's schedule has never been busier. She appears in two TV series of her own, has countless offers for private functions, large concerts & is currently studying a number of film scripts.
Asked what her proudest moments have been to date in an exceptional career, and one must remember that her accolades have been many, she points to four events. One, where she appeared before thousands of adoring fans, and was voted 'The Top Diva' in Asia, ahead of many other artistes appearing on the same bill. Another was to recently receive the top award for service tendered to the industry, from the Asian entertainment establishment (this on live TV!).

Also her talkshow on Astro RIA, called Anita, where she actually changes peoples' lives. And last but by no means least, her recording contract with 'the most exciting label in the industry', KRU Music Group (KMG). To say that Anita is excited by the prospect of recording a new album with such vibrating talent is an understatement!

Her first single from her debut album with KMG is the catchy tune called Seksis (with an attitude-filled video clip), and the album Seksis was released in January 2004. Something the industry was watching out for. The album Seksis also spawned other hits such as Juara Carta and Diva.
In 2005, she decided to add a new chapter to her already illustrious music career. A righteous female singer in the tradition of Billie Holiday and Bessie Smith, Anita represents the fairer sex and croons about a woman's all-too-familiar subject of L-O-V-E.

The album features stylish harmonies in a cool melting pot that fuses jazz, pop and acoustic music. She did justice to classics by Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Dorothy Moore and even the great Frank Sinatra!
Anita Sarawak.... Another Dimension hit the shelves on November 30, 2005. Combining local and international musical wizardy, the album is a testimony of the entertainer's versatility as much as to solidify her standing as a multi-talented performer.

The album also garnered four nominations in the upcoming Anugerah Industri Muzik 2006 for Best Vocal Performance (Female), Best Album Cover, Best Engineered Album and Best Local English Album.
This bundle of dynamite cannot be classed as merely a singer, an actress or even a performer. No, she truly is the ultimate entertainer, leaving audiences breathless & clamouring for more. Anita is the first to admit that the title diva does not sit comfortably with her, as she considers herself a normal person off stage - keeping home and relaxing by cooking for friends or simply going fishing.

Websters Dictionary defines the word 'diva' as 'a goddess', and whilst this little lady has her feet planted firmly on the ground, rest assured that his heavenly body will always provide a performance that is out of this world.

Viva la Diva!
