We had the good fortune of connecting with Anastasia Gerber and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Anastasia, why did you pursue a creative career?
A few years ago, on a faithful Sunday afternoon, I was improvising and singing on a public piano when suddenly, a random woman approached me. She said and I’ll never forget: ‘‘I thought I didn’t have a heart anymore, but after hearing you sing, I realised, I still have one, thank you young girl’’. These words have turned my entire life upside down because it was the day where I decided to become a professional singer. Ever since I’m on a mission to have a positive impact and reach the hearts of as many people as possible through music.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way.
I’ve learnt that life is very unpredictable and that you never know what doors will open/close along the way. However, one of the most important things I guess is knowing where you’re going. I’m a big believer in goal setting. Because it gives you purpose and a reason to get up every morning and to strive for.
Another thing my brother always tells me is to have faith in your path, consistently put out music all the while staying patient and positive. The stars will align, just do your daily baby steps and be persistent.
What do you want the world to know about you?
Motto: Embrace life and ride it straight to perfect laughter.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
There’s too many amazing places to visit! That’s why it all comes down to the preferences of your best friend. In my case, we would rent a jeep and drive to hidden gems where there are only few people. We would go on hikes, swim in the sea and I guess go shopping for 1 day.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to extend my gratitude and love to my family and close friends, that support me throughout all the seasons. Without them, I wouldn’t be the gobshite I am today. 😄
But most of all, I would like to say thank you to my brother for his unconditional love and for always pushing and trying to get the best out of me.
