Singer Baby hails from Varisaaleru (Vadisaleru), Rangampeta mandal, East Godavari district. She is an agriculture labourer and she does not have any musical background or any knowledge of music.

She cannot read, but her melodious voice mesmerised music lovers and proved her to be a remarkable singer. Many hailed her as a natural singer. She hogged the limelight when BBC Telugu did a live with her on its Facebook page. She also received congratulatory messages from popular musicians like Koti and RP Patnaik, who assured her growth in the industry.
Going a step ahead, music director Koti invited singer Baby to sing in his programme Bol Baby Bol. He also went on to introduce her to megastar Chiranjeevi, who received her with a lot of warmth over the weekend and lauded her singing skills. His wife Sureka, who also present there on the occasion, treated her with a lot of warmth.
