South African singer/model Lira is a platinum-selling star in Africa and like Sade before her, blends R&B, Jazz and African elements into a sensual, appealing pop music sound with global appeal. Lira has appeared on more than 20 magazine covers in Africa and Europe and has been a spokesperson for such brands as Audi. She has won numerous SAMA awards, the South African equivalent of a Grammy. Essence Magazine named her one of “five unique artists to change music.” Rise Again, her U.S. debut, is a wide-ranging collection of her best work to date, including the smash hit title track, which shows off her soulful, jazzy and African-oriented sides. Included is a version of “Something Inside So Strong,” which she performed at ceremonies honoring Nelson Mandela.
