Rising pop star Sky Ferreira, 21, took up Transcendental Meditation to help with anxiety and sleep problems. Not only was the cure immediate, but Sky got far more than she had bargained for:
“I just started doing Transcendental Meditation with Bob Roth at the David Lynch Foundation recently. I originally started it to help me with anxiety & insomnia. It’s already made my life waaaaaaaaaaaaaay better & even with my stage fright. Which I used to think there was no cure for…Last night was the first night I’ve slept 8 hours naturally in my entire life. I felt the best I have in ages. It’s better than any medication or all of the other nonsense I’ve tried. Check it out <3
My new year’s resolution for 2014 is to get mentally & physically healthy.I decided/needed to start it before the new year. It’s the only way this vocal hemorrhage will go away. I got it due to stress & straining my voice.”
From home-made videos to a world tour
Sky Ferreira was first introduced to the music industry after befriending recording artist Michael Jackson, and began performing in her childhood. Ferreira later began uploading singing videos on the Internet, which led to her discovery by recording agents. Her debut studio album Night Time, My Time was successfully released in 2013.
Ferreira has been announced as an opening act for the international Bangerz Tour, headlined by her friend Miley Cyrus, which is scheduled to begin in February 2014.
