Emerging from The Voice 2012, singer Bảo Anh gained recognition for her heartfelt ballads like Trái tim em cũng biết đau, Sống xa anh chẳng dễ dàng, Anh ấy của cô ấy... Her gentle voice and storytelling captivate listeners in every song, sparking contemplation.

In a similar vein, Bảo Anh’s life story is explored in this episode of Have A Sip: Dark Hours. In the middle of all the ups and downs, she thinks about being a mother, loving, and pursuing music.

Ages 20, 25 and 30

Bảo Anh discussed how becoming a mom changed her and gave her a fresh perspective on love. She discovered that genuine love means allowing others to feel loved without imposing restrictions or constraints on their freedom.

Individuals should prioritize self-love before reaching out to others. Making time for self-improvement or accepting one’s autonomy to put one’s own needs before those of others are two possible ways to achieve this goal.

She also shared that her child’s name, Misumi, signifies “beautiful and pure” in Japanese, reminiscent of her younger self in her 20s. At the moment, Bảo Anh runs her personal and professional life with the tenets of honesty and hard work. She firmly believes that when one gives and receives love, happiness is an inevitable byproduct.

Be ready for anything that happens

Love manifests as companionship across various facets of life, fostering harmony of thought and soul. It entails being a steadfast refuge for each other during times of adversity.

Despite experiencing setbacks and pain, she maintains her faith in love, both in giving and receiving it. Additionally, love transcends romantic relationships and extends to familial and friendship bonds. These connections serve as sources of motivation for her to overcome challenges and approach others with kindness.

As long as you feel enough, it will be enough

When raising a child as a single mom, Bảo Anh emphasizes the significance of maintaining a resilient mindset. She thinks that every moment should be lived to the fullest since she knows how valuable life is. She embraces life with optimism, like a flower, trusting in a better future, even when she lets herself feel grief, failures, and blunders.

Confronted with concerns about her family’s incompleteness, she holds the belief that a deep understanding of a situation mitigates feelings of deprivation. The route to healing, she knows, always includes flaws and scars.

In her growth journey, the singer advocates against comparing oneself to others, emphasizing self-awareness and continuous improvement. This approach boosts her confidence to pursue her chosen path and connect with like-minded individuals.

Happy or sad: you decide!

When asked about her future intentions, the singer said that her tiny family is her present priority, suggesting that there are no plans for new music releases very soon. Nevertheless, she considers writing a song that is both playful and deep, displaying a more mature tone than her typical songs.

She aims to convey imperfection in this song and highlight the beauty of the wounds in each person’s heart. Unlike her previous, often melancholic songs, Bảo Anh hopes to explore more vibrant and cheerful music genres.

Her future musical direction reflects a message she wants to share with her audience. When life presents challenges, it is up to each individual to decide whether to face them with joy or sadness. She believes that choosing joy can make these challenges feel lighter.

At the end of the conversation, Bảo Anh shared special wishes for her female audience: “I hope everyone’s journey won’t be too difficult, and that in the end, you all find love and happiness. And boyfriends should cherish their partners even more.”
