Senhit has worked with the most prominent names in the Italian music scene, such as Gaetano Curreri and Maurizio D'Aniello and international producers like Busbee, Steve Daly & Jon Keep, Jamie Hartman and Brian Higgins.
Senhit began her career playing leading roles in successful musicals throughout Europe: The Lion King in Germany, Hair in Switzerland, Fame and Il Grande Campione with Massimo Ranieri in Italy. In 2009, she performed the single No More in San Siro Stadium in Milan in front of 60.000 people for the charity event Amiche per l'Abruzzo.

In 2016, Senhit travelled all over Europe for a tour of the most popular clubs: she sang in Milan, Amsterdam, Paris, Manchester, Berlin and London. One year later she released the EP Hey Buddy and her single, Something on your Mind, reached the Top 5 in the UK Commercial Pop Club Chart. In 2019 Senhit released two new singles in Italian, one also released in English, the videos for which were both directed by Luca Tommassini.
Senhit recently acted as a jury member for the Italian TV show All Together Now. This year, Senhit will enter the Eurovision Song Contest, representing San Marino, with the song Freaky!; a song about the beauty of being out of the box, the freedom of living thoughtlessly, not caring about prejudices, breaking old rules and making up new ones. Freaky! was chosen by European fans in a digital battle between it and the song Obsessed.
