Local Teen, Maria Deirisarri, wins Halcyon’s Got Talent Competition

by Audra H. Anders for The Aha! Connection

Local teen, Maria Deirisarri, recently won a talent competition at Halcyon’s Got Talent last Saturday, singing “Feeling Good” by Michael Bublé .  Her mom, Beatriz, is a friend of mine and is also the head designer at Jewelry Artisans!

Maria has been in training since age five and has released four songs: Blindfolded, I T I L U (I think I am in love with you) and Te Necesito, in English and Spanish. She’s also been a finalist of Eddie’s Attic songwriter’s Open Mic, Georgia Has Talent, Madlife Stage and Studios-Undiscovered artist. Her first “for hire” gig was for the City of Alpharetta in April and she is performing live every week in local events around our community.

She released her fourth single last week….. I AM ENOUGH and it is another fabulous one. As the music industry has changed dramatically, especially after the pandemic, she needs a lot of support from our community to push her songs forward!   So please download her songs on iTunes or Spotify, follow her on Instagram and subscribe to her YouTube page!
