    Nur Amira Syahira is an awesome talent. She is so entertaining with her drumms and all her comedic facial expressions and sweetest smile in the whole world. She also seems to be very humble with all the attention she gets which makes her an awesomely sweet young lady. I hope to follow her and her career as long as she persues it. I wish her all best success that life has to offer her in music, business and family in the future!!!

    I love her smile and talent! I get so much inspiration as i get to know her. She has so many talents other than drumming too. A brilliant girl and not just an average teenage girl. I wish her to be success and all the best in her career, bussiness, academics, life and hereafter.
