Paging Doctor Sean

We almost lost a music great to the world of medicine.jsean

On today’s SAJA (South Asian Journalists Association) interview with chart-topping singer Jay Sean, the UK-born superstar reveals he was heading down a completely different career path when his music took off.

In the interview, in partnership with SAMMA, South Asians in Media, Marketing, and Entertaiment, Jay Sean reveals that his popularity is no small feat, as he is the first artist of Indian origin to top the Billboard Top 100 at #1 with his hit song, “Down” (featuring Lil’ Wayne).

But instead of having his smooth voice heard on the radio across the world as he does today, Jay could have been seeing patients as Dr. Sean.

When asked about how his South Asian family viewed his career choice and if they pressured him into a more traditional professional career, Jay replied that in fact, he was the one who “wanted to be a doctor.”  Medicine seemed like a natural career choice since growing up, he was “fascinated by science and the body and the mind.”

So, how did Jay make the career switch that led him to super stardom?  Jay explains:

“Simultaneously, I was getting on with music which is my passion, but I guess  I never expected the music to go so crazy. I never expected it to get to the level where it did where I had to make that critical choice, and I made that choice.  And thankfully it was the right choice, and it got me to where I am now.”

So to all you aspiring singers, follow your passion, even if there has never been someone like you at the top before. Especially if you can break barriers for those who will come after.
