At 20 Eilish already has seven Grammy award wins in her kitty. Her latest album ‘Happier than ever’ is ruling the charts. She not only writes her songs but also directs their videos.
Eilish was born in 2001 in Los Angeles. She and her brother Finneas O’Connell had an innate passion for music. When she was 14 Eilish and FINNEAS recorded ‘Ocean Eyes’, a major hit that made the world take note of their talent. FINNEAS has been producing her sister’s music since then.
The singer was recently featured on the cover of Elle Magazine where she spoke about the perils of being on social media and the constant scrutiny she has to face. She was trolled for wearing a corset for Vogue’s cover.
She also collaborated with Nike to create two pairs of “100% vegan” Air Jordan sneakers. The shoes, to be launched on September 27, are aligned with Eilish’s commitment to animal-friendly fashion. She has marched with young environmental activist Greta Thunberg and organized plastic-free shows to highlight the issue of climate emergency.
