Arihana White – X FACTOR


Arihana White

When Arihana White-Ututaonga gets up on stage these days, it’s not just to fulfil her dream of performing. She also does it to show the person who attacked her and almost cost her vision, that they gave her an undeniable strength.

From Rebecca Malcolm Rotorua Daily Post

Arihana recently performed on the  X Factor. We’re really proud that she’s performing after experiencing violence where her vision was damaged. Check out her performance of Jennifer Hudson’s ‘Love you I do’ and read more about her in this New Zealand Herald article or check out her music video page.

“Something recently happened to me… I was assaulted and my vision was damaged from it… Since my vision was damaged I’ve learned to appreciate a lot more than I would have.”
