“I literally fell to the floor when I found out that I’d been nominated for Rising Star,” Rina says of her shortlist spot. “I really can’t put into words how much this means to me given that I wasn’t eligible for this award a few weeks ago and now that door has been opened for future generations of artists like myself. Thank you so much to everyone who voted for me, it means the world.”
