Her stage name, Petrah is a feminine version of Peter, derived from the Greek word “Petros,” which translates “stone” or “rock.”
Since she was a child, the singer-songwriter has been honing her vocal skills while participating in religious musical events. Her parents were initially opposed to her becoming the celebrity she desired, but as time passed, they came to understand and accept her ambitions.
