Nazanin Mandi Biography (Age, Ethnicity)
She was born Nazanin Aliza Mandighomi on September 11, 1986, in Valencia, California, the United States of America. Her enigmatic features and exotic looks portray a cocktail of roots which include Persian, Spanish, Mexican and Native American.
From a very young age, Nazanin discovered what she would be doing for a long time if not for the rest of her life. She proved to be what many people may call a natural performer. At 3, when most kids are just being kids, she started singing and dancing. That does not, however, render that she missed out on her childhood. In fact, she had it to the full and still reminisce moments from that era. Before you start thinking it’s only dancing and singing she did, she also debuted as a model seven years later at 10. That’s not all. The musical prodigy was just 15 when she entered for American Idol. Although she finished in the final 35 due to lying about her age (she told producers she was 16 to qualify for auditions), she gained wide prominence for her participation.
Nazanin Mandi also debuted at the New York’s Carnegie Hall where she sang Mozart’s Requiem to a sold-out crowd. Assuredly, there is no end in sight to the heights she would scale. Those times rightly served as a stepping stone for her.
Soon after, she landed on other reality TV talent competitions which would reveal another aspect of the performer; she is made for the screens. She appeared as a finalist on Next Big Star and in 2005, featured as a contestant on the UPN reality series Are You The Girl. Afterwards, she received a spot on Rock Star Academy as a music expert and made a guest appearance on the Bravo reality series Shahs of Sunset. Nazanin Mandi also appeared in an episode of Disney’s That’s So Raven with Raven Symone.
Her television resume also includes Independent Feature Films and the music video for Bobby Valentino’s song Anonymous, where she featured as the main love interest. She has also hosted numerous shows and has appeared on several national commercials. Moreover, she is a brand ambassador for brands like Smashbox Cosmetics and has also appeared in print campaigns for magazines such as Cosmo Girl, Maxim, Seventeen Magazine, GQ India, Esquire, Ecko Unlimited, Roar Clothing, and Lovenci Clothing.
Nazanin Mandi is indeed a phenom. Aside her excellence in acting and modelling, music has always been her first love. She has myriads of experiences in musical theatre, started recording when she was 12 and can sing in 5 different languages. She also studied jazz and classical music and can confidently contend in the industry though she is now mostly known for her R&B and pop hits. At the age 19, she signed to Soul Diggaz Rock record label and by 2014, she was working on her debut album.
Nazanin Mandi was born to an Iranian father, Ali Reza Mandighomi and a Latin American mother, Luz Cecilia Saenz. She shares a strong bond with them despite their cultural differences. She grew up with her three brothers in a primarily Caucasian neighbourhood but it was the most comfortable environment where they were taught by their folks to be proud of, and comfortable with their identity.
Besides her prominence in the entertainment arena, Nazanin also garnered some fame for her relationship with the Grammy-award winning Mexican singer Miguel Jontel Pimentel. The duo first met in 2005 when they were 18 and has been together since then. They got engaged in January 2016. Two years later, Nazanin Mandi married her boyfriend of 13 years on a very low key ceremony over the Thanksgiving weekend, Saturday, November 24, 2018, at the Hummingbird Nest Ranch in Simi Valley, California.
The phenom is not only known for her great voice but also for her great body and good looks. Thanks to her mixed heritage, she is so gorgeous that it hurts. Nazanin Mandi’s made for model body measures 32-24-36, borne on her 5 ft 4 inches (1.63 m) height with a proportional weight of 57 kg. Also highlighting her glistening beauty is her dark brown hair and eyes and constant but contagious smile.
