Serena Wu

Serena Wu, a 20-year-old multilingual singer/songwriter from Halifax, NS, embarked on her musical journey at the age of 15 when she started songwriting. She released her first song, “Assez,” a song about overcoming insecurity and strengthening self-esteem, as part of the French project “La Relève in 2020.” She has since performed for the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo in 2021 and for Acadian National Day at Grand parade in 2022. She’s currently working on the release of her upcoming songs “Hate you now” and “Stranger” which will be coming out in the next few months in both English and French versions.
