NASHVILLE, Tenn. (September 9, 2022) – Viral pop sensation Auti is pondering what many do after losing a loved one to suicide in her new single “4 Years” – available now on all digital platforms. A melancholy memoriam, written for the best friend she lost when he took his own life, “4 Years” drops as Suicide Prevention Week comes to a close.

“On the 4-year anniversary date of my friend’s passing due to suicide, I sat down at the piano and just… talked to him,” Auti told HollywoodLife, who premiered the ballad exclusively yesterday (9/8). “I said everything that I wish I could have said to him, both before and after he had passed. That’s how my song ‘4 Years’ came to life.” 

Signed with Pivotal Records – a label itself known for strong messaging in and support of mental health – Auti first gained notoriety when a cover video she did with her dad performing “Shallow” from the blockbuster hit A Star Is Born went viral, accumulating hundreds of millions of views collectively. Since then, she’s continued to write and record new music, all the while remaining deeply rooted in her calling to bring awareness to suicide prevention and mental health.

“Through my music, I acknowledge the baggage that so many of us carry around and try to avoid – like a heavy weight. Everyone finds themselves dealing with mental health issues at some point in their lives, and I believe it is extremely important that we address those tough times, because it is the first step to preventing suicide.” 

Auti recently wrapped filming for a video to accompany “4 Years” – the visual is due out mid-September. 



At the ripe old age of 14, Auti went viral in a video singing “Shallow” (originally performed by Lady GaGa and Bradley Cooper) with her dad. To date, her videos have amassed over 400 million views across all social media platforms. Along with her weekly social media live performances and her following in the hundreds of thousands, Auti is setting the stage for an opportunity to change the world and get her message out. With the relative “overnight” success and recognition, Auti started teaching herself multiple instruments to properly capture the lyrics she had been writing for years. Her talents led to partnerships with famed producers like Kent Wells (Dolly Parton) and Jason Roy (Building 429), opening spots for multi-platinum, GRAMMY nominated artist Ty Herndon, Brady Seals, and Jamie Floyd, and a duet with artist MattyB that added another 3 million views to her portfolio. In 2021, Auti signed with Pivotal Records, a division of Pivotal Moments Media, a company with a mission to promote mental wellness through education and entertainment. 

In 2021, Auti won “Artist of the Year” at The Josie Award – the largest independent artist award show globally – and is nominated again in 2022.
