tradition of waiting for a record company to favour her by joining 17LIVE. Originally a
9-to-5 worker, Lizi was sought by at 17LIVE agent and allowed her to channel her
childhood passion, singing, into the centre of her life.
She took the leap of faith and left her full-time job to jump into live broadcast. With her voice, Lizi captured a large number of fans and stabilized her own income through each live broadcast. Today, Lizi has been with 17LIVE for three years, noting that the platform has given her countless opportunities to showcase herself “Working used to be mundane day after day without too many ripples. But joining 17LIVE and being able to do a live broadcast is like a small performance in a pub. In addition to singing, there needs to be a topic of conversation. Interacting with the audience is hard work but more meaningful.” – Lizi, 17LIVE LIVER.
