Like a modern day siren, Rachel lures her listeners in with haunting melodies and a soulful voice. Once entranced, she takes her captives on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment guiding them safely through the storms and shipwrecks of life.
There is a saying that, “Stars are made, not born,” and that couldn’t be more true for this actress, singer, dancer.
Talk about a triple threat! Music, dance and acting have always been a part of this starlet’s life. Brought up in the entertain- ment industry, Rachel has grown up around music, theater, film and dance! From the tender age of 3, she has been dancing, eventually becoming a professional hula dancer, competing in the top hula competitions and traveling the world enchanting international audiences.
It was actually thanks to her dancing abilities that she was introduced to the television and film industry. She was asked to dance in commercials for companies like Hawaiian Airlines, in televised parades like Disney World’s Winter Parade, for major televised events like The International Children’s Festival sharing the stage with the Sesame Street Gang and even at major football games like the Pro-Bowl for four years.
All this before she was even thirteen years old! It was around this age that she discovered her gift, passion and love for music! Engrossed with the rhythmic vibes of her culture, this Hawaiian Native began playing the ukulele, eventually writing her own lyrics and melodies.
Though her creativity was heavily influenced by her island home, her taste in music con- trasted the happy and light-hearted sounds of the islands. Instead, she found solace in artists like P!nk, Evanescence and Adele who’s music mirrored the hardships and realities she faced in her own life. Behind the lights, cameras and smiles, Rachel was haunted by traumas and abuses she’d been going through for years.
