In September 2023, one-half of the much-adored Kenyan girl group Band Beca resurfaced online and wowed the audience as she auditioned for The Voice Poland.

In a clip that made rounds on social media, Becky blind auditioned for the judges and sang along to Demi Lovato’s iconic hit song Stone Cold, and was less than a minute into it before she got a 5-chair-turn reaction from a set of overly impressed judges.

Over the weekend, she performed live and made it to the semi-finals of the singing completion show.

The singer took to social media and wrote, “We are in the semi-finals Baby! A huge thanks to everyone who made this happen,” she posted.

Hours before performing at the quarter-finals, she shared, “Today we are fighting for places in the semi-finals, don’t forget to vote for your favourites. Enjoy watching and let there be no shortage of emotions in your hearts.”

“I love new beginnings and new experiences @voiceofpoland has made my dream come true!! Let’s go international baby. To everyone that voted and to the glam team that made me look this amazing I want to Thank you.”

Becky and Carol Kamweru, the dynamic duo that formed the much-loved Band Beca, made their last musical appearance in 2021 with a touching EP where they expressed their gratitude and devotion to the Lord for their extraordinary journey.

Becky relocated to Poland with her husband Bartłomiej Łopata – A mining engineer – whom she met in Kenya.

“I’m in Poland because I’m married to my husband, he is Polish and we moved out here,” excitedly said the songstress while speaking to the judges.

Upon relocating to Poland, Becky took a bold step in her music career by releasing her debut single, Moonlight.

She says that as much as love brought her to Poland, she has another goal, to win over Polish music enthusiasts with her melodic prowess.
