Description
Wordsmith, vocalist, feminist: Lizzo is one of music's most powerful up-and-comers. Combining upbeat pop hits, gospel influence and bold rapping, her unique discography is matched only by her unapologetic performance. Former TIME Musical Act to Watch, the honest entertainer has formed a devoted fanbase through her social advocacy and uncommon talent. Originating in soul-pop, Lizzo's R&B debut was met with national success. After a tour with Har Mar Superstar and an appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman , she released two more studio albums. Her first major-label EP and most recent release, Coconut Oil , has recieved critical and popular acclaim for its feel-good composition. With a focus on self-love, the rapper-singer has been called "the new queen of body-positive self-acceptance anthems ( Entertainment Weekly )." Lizzo's collaboration with Grammy-nominated producer Ricky Reed (Jason Derulo, Fifth Harmony) has catapulted her to the top of viral charts. Says AM New York , "This is singalong music, the type worthy of hairbrush microphones and dancing in front of the mirror." JUST ANNOUNCED: DJ & MC, Sophia Eris will open the show.
