ONE of Fiji's local singing sensations, Elena Baravilala has released her second album.

Titled "Elena in Retrospect", the album is a glimpse of her years spent in the music industry, dating back to 2002 when she was introduced to the public alongside her sisters.

From her first-ever television interview to her solo at the Suva Secondary School Music festival and the Make It Count (MIC) show, Ms Baravilala has spent much of her recent life in the public eye and hopes her album will depict her journeys.

She said her album was made to represent sacrifice, commitment and self-belief among other things, and to allow personal growth.

"It is such a fulfilling feeling, I'm really happy to be able to put out something that reflects years of commitment and I have a good feeling about this album," she said.

Ms Baravilala said many of the songs in the album were a tribute to those who had journeyed with her throughout her life.

"I really wish to thank my parents, sisters, David Quai, Ben Morrison, Tropic Thunder and so many others who were a part of this incredible journey," she said.

Ms Baravilala released her first album in 2006 when she was a high school student singing Fijian gospel songs.

The album will be officially launched in January, 2013.
