Isabella Pihas

Some nicknames are meant to be. Thirteen-year-old Isabella Pihas goes by “Belle,” and nothing could be more appropriate for this talented young musician. She’s been writing songs since she was only 8 years old.

Since 2010, Belle has raised more than $1,200 for Rady Children's through sales of her CDs, iTunes sales and lemonade sales. Most recently she donated 100 CDs to the Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, where her money has been allocated to help in the fight against cancer.

Belle lives in Scripps Ranch with her family and attends Julian Charter School, Academy of Creative and Performing Arts. Her favorite artists include Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, and Marina and the Diamonds.
