Sky Ferreira (born July 8, 1992), is an American singer, songwriter, model, and actress. On March 22, 2011, Ferreira released her first digital extended play, As If!. Ferreira is of Portuguese, Brazilian and Native American descent. She got her start in Los Angeles. She sang gospel songs in church throughout her childhood. Sky grew up around family friend Michael Jackson, stating in an interview: "We just became friends with him. When I was born, I was raised around him, I always saw him. I had holidays with him and stuff like that." At age 13, she started taking opera lessons to refine her singing voice. She spent the next few years maintaining a MySpace profile where she uploaded various demos of self-written tracks. Shortly before her 15th birthday, she caught the attention of Swedish producers Bloodshy & Avant by sending them a message through the social networking site. The producers were impressed and subsequently decided to work with her.
