“There is nothing like the feeling of singing an iconic theme, which practically defines its musical era and genre, live with some of the best orchestral musicians in the world… This was a day that I will never forget!”

This is Ayana Gaviv singing the Star Trek Discovery theme song “Courage” with composer Jeff Russo and the Nevada Pops Orchestra at last week’s Star Trek convention. (Tune in at :45)

A Grammy-award winner, Ayana is a member and has been a soloist in Los Angeles Opera Chorus and Los Angeles Master Chorale, where she has sung everything from atonal 21st-century music to Anglican chant. Ayana’s voice can be heard on the film and TV soundtracks of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Star Trek: Discovery, Deadpool 2, Transparent, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Jungle Book, Smurfs, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, Wreck-It Ralph, and many, many more.
