Sona Thinakaran (2010)
Orland Park, IL
Sona Thinakaran, the namesake of SONAR technology (editor's note: and Cakewalk SONAR), comes from the plain and boring suburb of Orland Park, where she has spent most of her life doing absolutely nothing. She played violin and piano during her younger years, and tried out basketball and soccer in middle school and high school. However, she was never satisfied…there was always something missing: the intensifying beats and sweet-sounding melodies of the a capella scene. Although she does not have any vocal experience, she decided to go out on a musical whim and try out for Voices. Ever since, life has been :). The quality of her life has increased, despite her thrice annual 10-week long hibernation in the Reg. For real.
