Here comes Superwoman!

“What’s up, it’s your girl Superwoman,” is a phrase Lilly Singh can be heard saying during the intro of her mega famous Youtube Channel: IISuperwomanII. Nevertheless, instead of greeting millions of viewers through her channel, Singh will soon be saying, “what’s up” on her very own talk show.

In September, Singh will be joining the late-night boys’ club as she is about to become the only woman with a late-night show on one of the Big Four broadcast networks. Besides hosting A Little Late with Lilly Singh, the star is also set to be executive producer of the 1:30am series.

Born and raised in Scarborough, Ontario, Singh is the daughter of two Indian immigrants. Growing up, she describes herself as a tomboy and began making YouTube videos as an outlet to express her feelings. Her ability to connect with viewers around the world proved her right when viewers subscribed increasingly in a short amount of time. Currently, her YouTube channel has 14 million subscribers and 3 billion views so there is no doubt that she will be a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious host. 

But don’t think it stops there. In 2013, Singh embarked on a career in hip-hop releasing numerous songs including the popular, #LEH. In 2015, Singh embarked on her world tour, "A Trip to Unicorn Island,” and recorded her life turning the footage into a documentary under the same name. Besides appearing in Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You” music video, Singh voiced two unicorns named Bubbles and Misty in the animated film “Ice Age: Collision Course” and starred in HBO’s 2018 film adaptation of “Fahrenheit 451.” AND, Singh is officially a #1 “The New York Times” Bestselling author from her first book, “How to Be a Bawse: A Guide to Conquering Life.” 

Can you say girl power?
