In search for meaning and her place in the world, Cley developed an eagerness for astrophysics as a child, and encouraged to study engineering. Anna became a rocket scientist in Paris with clients like the French space agency. Despite a promising career, Cley felt unfulfilled. Craving for personal growth and a meaningful existence, she made the bold move to leave her field and return to music. 2 yrs later she left for North America with a suitcase and a backpack. This is when her real journey began.
Developing her beautiful mezzo-soprano voice since childhood, she discovered through opera singing the greatest healer of all.
“I was an introverted, shy and clumsy girl. Opera singing allowed me to cry my pain through the songs of opera, a pain I couldn't express otherwise. I’m so grateful I had my music. My musical journey taught me how to own my presence, and dare to be alive.”
Cley has appeared on the stage of Carnegie Hall and held a title role in Carmen.
She founded the nonprofit Vocalise to empower children and young adults who suffered physical or psychological trauma. She has a certification in hypnosis with a particular interest in humanist hypnosis.
Expecting her first child; Cley continues to be driven by a passion to inspire and empower others.
“By sharing my own personal journey where I dared to believe in myself and follow my dreams, I hope to empower others to be courageous, connect to something greater than themselves, and take their leap of faith one step at a time.”
