South African soul singer Lira is set to show America what she is made of with the release of her album ‘Rise Again’ on US soil. The album will be released on April 29, 2014 via record label Shanachie Entertainment, followed by a tour in May.
The album has already been proven successful with rave reviews in Europe and Africa. In 2012, she received a nomination for ‘Best International Artist” at the BET awards and was included as one of ‘Five Unique Artists To Change Music in 2012.’ by Essence magazine.
Randall Grass of Shanachie states, ‘Lira has all the ingredients to be a star in the U.S.” “She has a unique sound, a wonderful voice, model-quality looks and is already a popular artist not only in Africa but in much of Europe as well with a wide-ranging appeal to Jazz, R & B, World music and Pop audiences.”
