Biography

BIOGRAPHY
SHORTEE

Alba Valéria Gähler aka «ShortEE» started her carrier very early: She wanted to sing along with every song she heard on TV, before she could even speak. As she learned how to walk, it didn’t take too long for her to have the fastest samba feet and the most flexible hips of the whole family.

1986 the little live wire, who is today 32 years old came to Switzerland. At that time she only knew three Swiss German words. Her passion to singing and dancing was getting stronger each day. Her inspiring example was Whitney Houston. To really be able to sing her songs correctly and understand the words, she taught herself English. In fact, Alba Valéria Gähler wanted to become a professional artist and dancer, just like her mother. She started to sing out loud in her bedroom and put choreographies together to songs of New Kids On The Block and Paula Abdul. She raped to songs of LL Cool J., danced and prayed to songs from MC Hammer.

«SHORT» stands for ShortEE’s height, which is ca. 1.58m. A friend used to call her «Shorty» and another friend always called her, «Energizer Girl» as she could never stand still. «EE» stands for the double energy she’s got and with which she infects the people around her.
