A little history: The talented vocalist was actually found by Danish beats producer Galimatias after she recorded her written songs over some of his tracks and uploaded them to her Soundcloud. Soon after, they were connected and the two produced Urban Flora together, an eight song EP. At age 19, she moved from her hometown in Ohio to Los Angeles. By age 21, she was already playing Lollapalooza. And most recently, Baraz was just added as Coldplay’s opener for their 2017 national tour. She’s climbed the pop ladder, and quickly.
Never in my life have I heard people scream for an artist the way Sunday night's crowd called out for Alina Baraz. But then again, what’s not to love? Her sultry R&B voice glided over tropical house tracks as she swayed across the stage in one sexy ass outfit. I saw audience members look over to their friends after every song stating, and restating, how stunning her voice was live. The compliments were flowing throughout the show and fans melted when she knelt down and grabbed the hands of those that waited their little hearts out in the front row for a chance to touch her.
