Selim Kagee's journey to becoming world renowned classical-pop singer

Selim Kagee says when he was 19, at a lecture on singing, he was told that if you can talk and breathe, you can learn how to sing. From those words he gathered courage and made a decision to learn how to sing.

From that day I immersed myself in music and eventually I found a music teacher who trained me for ten years on the vocal technique.

Kagee wanted to become a pop singer, but after many years of being trained by an opera singer he began to fall in love with the genre.

He began getting roles in music productions and that led to him performing in big orchestras.

In 2012 he signed with EMI music sung and released his first album 'Cry for love'.

Kagee says he is not an opera singer and has never sung in an opera, but his music is a bridge between classical music and pop music.

I am enjoying what i am doing. I like doing quality over quantity and giving great value in terms of entertainment.
