Laura Mvula As I was perusing Instagram, I noticed that one of my Instafriends, LoveMrs, posted a photo of her post work out song by a British singer named Laura Mvula.  I was immediately intrigued, mostly because of the photograph and her hair. After a little research I found out that this young lady has been around for a little while, and was also nominated for two Brit Awards, where have I been??  Ms. Mvula, a native of Birmingham, England, trained at the city’s Conservatoire, which provides professional musician training, for orchestral, jazz and opera performers. Off to iTunes I went, where her album, “Singing To The Moon” was available for $7.99.  Her album is very eclectic, with a mix of  pop, jazz and creative soul.  I’m loving the video for Green Garden.  Her voice reminds me a little of the lovely Amy Winehouse, who passed away much too soon.  You also hear touches of Nina Simone on “Is There Anybody Out There?”   Listen to her voice on Make Me LovelyThis song took my breath away, with it’s sweeping strings and horns… Beautiful!  I hear a little bit of Bjork there.  I’m also loving Like The Morning DewGreen Garden, and Diamonds, actually the whole album!!!. This really is an incredible album. Visit Ms. Mvula’s website for more beautiful photos, news and music, click here Sing To The Moon is available at iTunes and Amazon. You can also listen to the whole album here Thank you Instagram for always inspiring me.

Love, Light & Blessings…
