Ailee is a South Korean-American singer and songwriter who was born on May 30 1989. Before successfully making a debut on Feb 9 2012, she was already performing and showing her talent as an artist. She started a band in 2006, while still in high school, and engaged in underground music activities. She performed at university events and shared her own songs for free online. Before moving to Korea, she used her artist name “Ailee” in the YouTube video that was posted in 2007. On the YouTube channel in name of “mzamyx3”, which was probably the channel Ailee started, you can check her music performances from 15 years ago. Her incredible voice and talent quickly gathered a lot of views and attention.
Her voice was enough to mesmerize the people. After winning the Song of the Month and Rookie of the month at the 2012 Cyworld Digital Music Awards in February, her first EP ‘invitation’ was released in October of the same year. With her first Mega hit song ‘I will show you’, she won the Best New Artist Award at the Seoul Music Awards, Melon Music Awards, Mnet Asian Music Awards, and Golden Disk Awards, as well as the New Female Solo Artist Award at the Gaon Chart Music Awards with this EP. This is when the K-POP Diva was born.
Follow the path of her 10 years’ time.
It has been 10 years since she debuted. “I can’t believe it’s already been 10 years,” Ailee said through her management company The Live on the 9th of September, celebrating her 10-year debut anniversary.
Ailee expressed her gratitude to the fans, saying “I had such special days because I had fans who have supported me for a very long time and have always believed in me. I always appreciate it and love you, my fans. I’ll make sure to be better me all the time.”
Ailee is famous not only for her high-quality albums, but also for her powerful and perfect live performances in stages and concerts. She performed countless stages and had 8 worldwide concerts in total. Distance between her global fans and Korea and COVID-19 interfered her fans to experience Ailee’s fascinating performance. To interact with Aileeans (nickname of Ailee’s fans) all around the world, she is having an online XR Concert; “Colors”.
Color the world of Ailee with your own hands.
This online concert is to create a metaverse concert where Aileeans may interact with Ailee simultaneously. With a remarkable metaverse experience that incorporates the XR effect throughout the entire concert, Ailee and the Aileeans will mark the path to the Music Universe. The Aileean Digital ID Card will be awarded to backers of the concert on Kickstarter – the card with 1,024 various representations of Ailee from the Multi Universe. Aileeans are on a quest to assist Ailee in recovering the faded colors of the universe’s destroyed land as a result of the environmental disaster. If all missions are successful, 12 different lights and colors would be shown for 12 XR stages. Also, Aileeans who received the Digital ID Card can take part in the pre-production of the concert.
Only on Kickstarter, feel the energy like actually being in the Concert.
Everyone who pledges the campaign will receive a free ticket to the concert stream. The XR (eXtended Reality) technology used in this performance produces a lively and diversified visual presentation that will make backers feel like they are physically watching the concert in a front-row seat.
