A music sensation comes only once so often, possessing a balanced mix of addicting vocals, undeniable stage presence and irresistible songwriting. Fortunately for us, R&B has found it’s newest rising superstar. Welcome Africa Miranda, the refreshing face & sound of the New South.

A native of Montgomery, Alabama, this Cape Verdean beauty’s musical styling is edgy R&B that flirts with Hip-Hop and Rock influences.

Quickly nudging her way to the front and center of attention, Africa’s infectious energy and sound will keep her name in anyone’s mouth after just one listen and look.

Africa’s music highlights the raw emotional honesty and pure power of her voice, while delivering a sensual sound that has a strong focus on melody. Songs like “All I Need”, a mellow, vocally stimulating track asking for a genuinely loving man and “I Like It”, a mid-tempo cut with an infectious melody are flowing with sincerity and earnestness sure to resonate with music lovers of all ages and races. The seductive “Make Love” illustrates Africa’s maturity and tasteful sexual aggressiveness, while “That Girl” demonstrates confident and sassy lyrics looped around fiery harmonies: “If you're looking for a/Keep her mouth shut girl/Don't say nothin' girl/Scared to get buck girl/Keep it movin' cause I ain't what your choosin' boy sorry but that ain't me”.

Africa’s music is weaved with an eclectic range of musical influences such as Mariah Carey, Annie Lennox, R. Kelly, and Chaka Khan. Africa has mastered the art of painting pictures with her music, penning lyrics that
reflect upon her successes, failures, loves, and heartbreaks: "I'm a young woman who is still finding herself and my music reflects that”, says Africa. “That's why even though it can be uncomfortable at times, I try to be as honest as possible in my lyrics. Life is a long journey; I just want people to enjoy my music and walk with me for a little while."

An unstoppable force destined for stardom, Africa Miranda is quickly climbing up the ladder of global fame and shows no signs of stopping.
