Join us as Tanja shares the story of her first concert.


In this First Concert Ever segment, the pop artist, Tanja, talks about the story of her first experience with live music. You can check out the story below:

When I was in the third grade I was surprised with Hilary Duff concert tickets for my birthday. I was THE biggest Hilary Duff fan so this was a dream come true. I remember wearing a brand new outfit from Limited Too and I thought I looked so cool and that Hilary would for sure notice me. She was a huge inspiration for me in my early days of songwriting- I would play the three chords I knew on guitar and pen songs about my middle school crushes and heartbreaks.

Although the concert was so long ago and the details are fuzzy, I do remember dancing the entire time, waving my glow stick in the air, and signing every lyric of every single song. Seeing her on stage was the first time I really felt drawn to performing- I saw her up there and I thought “I want to be up there too”. Hilary Duff will always be an icon and I still jam out to her music today.
