Atalia Diquinzio: I’m Atalia, and I am the newest member to the ER crew. I have known the guys for many years but after The Climb exploded we had to move forward together. I have been singing for as long as I can remember, so naturally it’s something I love to do. All growing up I was in choir, and would perform any chance I got. Music is much more than something to fill the silence for me; it is a part of my soul. It is the best outlet for me to express my creativity and emotions. I listen to just about every genre of music; there is something to appreciate about each. My favorite artist is John Mayer; he is the definition of an artist in every sense. He writes his own music and his lyrics have so much meaning. That is what I strive for as well when writing; I want my words to come from my heart and for people to be able to connect on some level. I believe that is extremely important because I know I am not the only one who sees music as a part of them as well. I am so immensely blessed to be able to share my thoughts and what I feel is important to say. It is a gift like no other.
