Meet our special guest musicians
Although her parents are not singers, ever since she was little, Titer Haw Min loved singing. She was born in Mae La Oo Refugee Camp in Thailand after her parents and relatives fled Burma. Titer resettled to the United States in 2013 with her family and is now 13 years old. She dreams of becoming a singing star in the future. Currently, she stays busy by singing at events around the community. She hopes to inspire and uplift her Karen community through her voice and songs. Titer is empathetic, kind, and thoughtful. At 13, she has already accomplished a lot, and will keep moving forward until she achieves her dreams.
Rebeca Paw Moo is part of a talented Karen musical family, well-known by previous generations for their singing. Her father plays many instruments, including guitar, keyboard, and bass. Coming from a musical family tree, Rebeca’s passion for singing started shortly after learning how to talk. She was born in Mae La Refugee Camp in Thailand and came to the United States with her family as a baby in 2008. Rebeca is now 13 going on 14 years old. As the oldest of four kids, Rebeca is responsible for helping to take care of her younger siblings. When life proves difficult, singing often helps motivate her. When she grows up, she hopes to become a professional singer and use her platform to help the Karen community and uplift those living in poverty. Regardless of if she achieves fame, she will continue singing from her heart.
