You may not have heard of Sonali.  Yet.  But this young musician is on her way to pop stardom.  Sonali Argade is a New York singer-songwriter who is poised to take her career to the next level.  Sonali is one of the true stars to emerge from the clutter of Youtube (ala Jaime Grace and a handful of others).  She performed a cover of Rhianna’s Diamonds that is so spot on that Rhianna reached out to the budding star and met with her personally to congratulate and encourage her.
