She has been invited to sing in legendary venues, such as the Blue Note jazz club in New York, as well as in world-renown music festivals such as Montreux Jazz, and has entertained the Presidents of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Malawi.

This concert will feature songs from her highly-acclaimed album, “Rising”, as well as new songs to be released this year on her next album. She will be accompanied by: Shawn Whitley (bass), Justin Mathews (guitar), Lucianna Padmore (drums), Yeissonn Villamar (keyboards), and Gbianka Kotee & Staren Soanes (vocals).
