After the first was launched, she opened a Instagram account and added a couple more singing videos. These videos soon gained a large number of viewers with a great response from the public. Within a short period of time, she became a trending topic in a couple of the social media outlets. From this everything began.
It was these videos that supplied her with an offer to sing publicly for the first time, it was for an insurance company. The insurance company was promoting a new product for children’s insurance. The performance took place at a large stadium called, GBK Senayan. This was the first public performance for Clarice, but not the last. She now performs at many different locations.

When it comes to her voice, she is gifted. She has a wonderful tone as well as being a very technical singer. Everything she sings is clear and clean.
Clarice’s music talents were inherited through her dad who is a music producer. He produces many artists and through time, Clarice has met and heard a lot of these people. All of this lit the flame for her wanting to be a professional singer. “At first my dad had doubts about my singing talent, but after seeing the good response from many people, he asked if I was serious about being a professional singer. When I said yes, then my dad started teaching me singing techniques” says Clarice. Her dad then explained to her that being a professional singer has consequences. He set up her first task, to see if she really was serious. She was to be a guest star on a TV morning show. Clarice had to get up at 3am to go to the TV station, once there she had rehearsal with the house band, then makeup and hair, and performing at 6am. After this her dad believed in her and began producing her first EP.
Clarice’s EP has been produced with five original songs, but it has not stopped there. Now Clarice is with Sony Music and has released a single called, Masa Kecilku (My Childhood). This song is about a kid who looks back on her childhood, where she was very happy and full of unforgettable moments.
