MALINDA has put together a night of music with a beautiful full band. The evening will take her audience on a folk-pop journey as she poses a question she’s been asking herself the most in the past few years: “now what?” The world seems to be asking that question of all of us. While answers are never certain, attempting to find them is always worth it. Highlights from the show will include her debut EP Love Letter, well-loved singles like Don’t Make Me, as well as a few covers. Most exciting, she will debut every song from her upcoming EP, giving the audience an exclusive preview. And of course…Google Translate is sure to make a cameo. This performance includes audience participation, talkback, and artist meet & greet.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
MALINDA is a NY/DC-based singer, songwriter, and actor with a mission to make community through her art. She began her career as a professional actor in regional theatre, originating the role of Ella in “Ella Enchanted: The Musical” and starring as Girl in the DC regional premiere of ONCE. Her original work is a creative exploration of what it is to be a young person in our world today. Dubbed a “social media luminary” by The Washington Post, her YouTube videos range from little conversations to quirky songs, to fully produced original music videos. These videos on her YouTube channel, MALINDA, challenge her limits artistically and personally and inspire her audiences toward self-discovery and a deeper awareness of the world around them. Her debut EP, Love Letter, draws influence from pop, musical theater, and folk. With the advent of her own music, Malinda is quickly becoming known for her strong sense of vocal storytelling, balancing her pure (to quote her fans) “angelic” tone with a more powerful raw belt.
