Mermaid-pop musician Gedina talks new single and creating while in quarantine

Gedina graduated high school and later enrolled in UC Irvine ….“I wanted to go to college, but I knew that time was of the essence. Being involved in my passion was where I wanted to be,” said Gedina. “I loved school but I knew I needed to get through it to do what I love, so I took the fastest route to get into the adult world. Being an adult at a young age, it was like, ‘This is what I’m supposed to do. I’m ready for big.’” … Gedina released her debut single “Shame,” and by 2015, her song “First Time, First Love,” became an international hit that has now amassed over 2.2 million streams on Spotify.
