Zelica Alexander

We are so excited to have this talented artist featuring her work on Sunday. This post is special to me because I went to school with Zelica and she has always been a talented woman, however it wasn’t until recently I found out that she paints, and not just paint, she’s freaking amazing at it. Her work is authentic, and fresh. I’m pretty sure you will look at her work and connect with what you see.

Making Her Solo Debut…SODA!

13 Jul

SODA

With her bubbly personality and always positive attitude, it is no wonder why this South African born, Portuguese beauty was given the name Soda!! In just a couple days, she will make her solo artist debut on our Night of Essence stage and you definitely want to make sure you are there to see it!

Fun Fact #1: Soda has travelled the world performing on international stages in China, Germany, Switzerland, Egypt, and the Middle East.

About Soda:

Born as Suzana Garcia, this POP/R&B artist discovered music at a young age. She began her journey as a dancer, expressing her love for music through movement. It was through dance that she was able to develop her musicality and grow as an artist. Being exposed to popular recording artists, she began to understand how the business works. She knew that singing was her greatest passion, so she began writing and recording her own music. Having such musical influences as Aaliyah, Britney Spears, Faith Evans, Michael Jackson and the Notorious B.I.G., Soda developed a unique perspective on music, which she incorporated in her sound.

 

Fun Fact #2: A song that Soda sang for a kids tv show can be found and purchased on iTunes. 

 

With an eccentric voice and a sexy style, Soda is finally ready to introduce her music to the world. Join us on Sunday July 15th at The Great Hall to see this performance that is sure to heat up the stage…It’s going to be FIRE!!!

Fun Fact #3: Soda is currently touring with Kreesha Turner as a singer/performer.
