When the singer, songwriter and actor Sunithah decided to join The Bachelor, the reality show she was filming, she knew exactly what she wanted to do.
“I just wanted to write some songs and have them be strange,” she told Recode in an interview published today.
The 31-year-old says her love for the show inspired her to write a song about her relationship with her father.
Sunitha’s song is called “Ace In My Head”.
“It was like I’m in my dad’s head and he’s my daddy and I’m his daughter,” she said.
Songwriter SunithA singer-songwriter and performer, Sunithya also writes music for the popular YouTube series The Bachelor.
She tells Recode that her love of The Bachelor and her father’s life has influenced her writing songs.
I’ve written songs for The Bachelor for many years.
And as I’m sitting there and thinking about how this all happened, I think I would have done it anyway.
Sunithaa’s father, an accountant, was killed in a plane crash in 2017, and she and her mother had to move out of their home.
In 2018, the couple decided to move back to their home in the city of Mumbai after they were diagnosed with lung cancer.
Suniths father had been a doctor in India, but the illness left him unable to work.
Sunetha says she feels “very lucky” that she’s able to make music with her dad and his passion for music has helped her understand how her father died.
“He’s a very strong, kind person and he died a horrible death,” she explained.
“I just think that’s what my dad would want me to do.”
Sunithahs father, a doctor, died in 2017.
Sunithah, who is now married to singer Sunithha, told Recodes that her father was a doctor.
But Sunithamah says she and Sunithas father didn’t talk about his illness during their marriage.
After her father passed away, she says, she became aware that he was not the only person she was close with who had cancer.
As Sunithra told Recoding, she didn’t want to talk about it.
Eventually, Suniths mother gave birth to her first child, a son.
Sunes father died after he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
On the show, Sunes mother gave Sunith a new nickname for the mother of her baby: “Sasha”.
“I think her name means ‘I am beautiful’ in Hindi,” she says.
Despite the diagnosis of cancer, Sunethah says that she still felt strong about her mother.
I’m a very happy, proud, and beautiful person.
I’m not one who would ever talk about my father,” she concluded.
She says she loves the show and that her mother’s death has changed her.
According to Sunithras father, the songwriting and singing career started when she was young.
Sunytha’s father is now a successful musician.
Sunshayra and Suniths first child was born in 2018.
At the end of the interview, Sunythah says the reason she and she daughter have been on The Bachelor is because they both love it.
