A great experience that allowed me to discover the world of cinema while singing.
“I was lucky enough to have a very small figurative role there as a ” singing leader ””, tells us Alyah. “In fact, we were kind of extras, where we sang at the same time. So we will hear my voice among others. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to see the film yet, but it is likely that I will be seen on the screen. I had never done this before, especially playing in a movie with Marion Cotillard. It was a great experience that allowed me to discover the world of cinema while singing. I was playing in one of the Adam Driver scenes, which was on stage. We had the opportunity to see him in front of us. ” Cherry on the cake: “The scene was filmed at the Forum de Liège, so it was a bit at home. ”
A first single
Moving from pop to Soul, from RNB to French song, Alyah has also just released her first title entitled “Million Miles”. In this single, we discover a talented artist with a soft voice.

“The title tells about the fact of having lost a person who is dear to us, the emptiness that his disappearance creates, but also evokes positivity, with the importance of remembering all the beautiful memories that we have lived with this person. . I like the musicality of the song, as well as the lyrics. Everyone can make the song their own in their own way. ”
