Shivani first participated in Junior Star Singer as a contestant from Leicester appearing at Take Over Radio.  She has since recorded piano ballards and pop tracks on her demo with producers via the JSS development programme.  Shivani also has a keen interest in fashion and modelling.  Look out for Shivani on the JSS tour, in particular on the northern shows.  Her website www.shivanijss.com
