She attended to John F. Kennedy Primary School, Addis Ababa after she finished her primary school she started her secondary and high school education in Black Lion Secondary and Higher School.
Rahel started her music journey when she was an 11 years old in Children and Youth Theater (Amharic: ልጆች እና ወጣቶች ቲያትር) on summers when school's give their students school breaks. In this theater, she had the platform to show her talents not only for music but to act on various drama in the theater. While she was in Children and Youth Theater she received an audition to be in a show called Yegna (Amharic: የኛ) which means "Ours".
Yegna is a band in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia made up of Teref Kassahun (Melat), Lemlem Haile Michael (Mimi), Zebiba Girma (Emuye), Eyerusalem Kelemework (Sara) and Rahel Getu (Lemlem). It is a multi-platform brand that is designed to entirely inspire positive change for girls in Ethiopia. Through storylines that confront real-life issues and challenges that girls face every day, the drama, music, and talk show are challenging the way people think about girls and the way girls think of themselves. These five young women have set out to change many of the issues Ethiopian women face through their music. Yegna, which means “ours” in Amharic, understands that in order to better their country they must empower girls.
Currently, Rahel is working as solo musicians separated from Yegna. She is focused on making her first album available to the public and preforming on various events to be with her audiences.
She reviced a nomimation for the best single of the year 2011 E.C and won the nomination for her single music Tilobign(Amharic: ጥሎብኝ).
