Meet Sahara, a singer-actress and the voice behind the ARMM hymn. She is always more than willing to share her beautiful voice to everyone. For her, it is a gift that ought to be shared. "Pinaka paborito kong parte ng ARMM Hymn ay ang huling part at huling salita nito which is 'Alhamdulillah' na ang ibig sabihin sa Islam ay 'Salamat sa Panginoon'. Marami kasi tayong dapat ipagpasalamat sa Kanya. Sa akin personally, for all the blessings in my life, siguro kulang pa ang pasasalamat. Madalas ginagamit ang boses ko sa mga occasions mula pa noong 2007 hanggang ngayon. Minsan nga nalalaman ko na lang nanalo na pala ang kinanta ko sa mga competitions kagaya ng National Sineng Pambata Competition. Pero kahit hindi ako nasasabihan kaagad, okay lang. Sapat na na nalaman kong nanalo. Sobrang proud ako dahil boses ko iyon eh.”
