Suai

Friday, March 06, 2009

So you may remember me mentioning the singer Suai last year in my blog. Well…I got to catch up with her again and do her makeup for her performance at Joe’s Pub in New York for her Vibe magazine feature and I have to say I had a great time catching up and chatting it up with the talented artist and super sweet girl. She has been one busy lady, from working with Ne-yo and Akon to being a featured artist on the official Barack Obama Music Compilation: Yes we can: Voice of a grassroots movement and having a special appearance on ABC’s Lincoln Heights, this girl is a rising star. She is one girl to follow! Watch the video for a sneak peek of our chat! Let me know what you think!
To learn more about Suai check her out on her myspace page at www.myspace.com/suai

Thank you for supporting lesser known artists! I love learning about the smaller stars before they hit the "bigtime". On another note, has anyone bought the Obama "soundtrack" (for lack of a better word)? I want too and have heard some samples online but was wanting a first hand opinion. :) Cheers! Bionic Beauty

Wow! She is amazing! At first I thought she was Solange Knowles! Estelle, Solange, and Suai could be a new "Destiny's child for the new millenium!

I like her concept, but I think her sound could be tweaked just a bit only because she reminded me of Solange at first listen. I would like to hear her perform live because I feel like she has vocal talent, but her sound (as of right now) is not doing anything "different" in terms of the current main stream music scene...just my own opinion :/

It was lovely seeing a young star also as a real, down to earth person. A constructive comment about the video though, it was hard to hear the interview, perhaps alternating the music and the interview portion would help (instead of playing them at the same time).
