Their combined

Juwita Profiled in Style: Malaysia

 
"While her career soars, singer Juwita Suwito's feet are firmly planted on the ground."
Read the full-page article in the July 2007 issue of Style: Malaysia. Here's our favourite part: "... that's how Juwita is: possessing a youthful fascination and genuine appreciation for things. Perhaps that's what is fuelling her songwriting. And this singer 'lives' her songs. The positivism in her tracks is a reflection of her worldview, which she attributes to her parents and faith."
