Lira

With millions of records sold and a list full of accolades, Lira is the brightest star coming out of South Africa.  She was also crowned Glamour magazine South Africa's 2008 "Woman of the Year."  A true trendsetter, Lira was the first African artist to release a BluRay DVD and the first South African to have a video featured on VH1.  The platinum-selling megastar performed at the 2010 FIFA World Cup Kick-off and sang for Nelson Mandela at his 92nd birthday celebration.  In August 2011 she released her first American EP, Lira, which was a precurser to her upcoming sixth studio album, Rise Again, to be released exclusively in the U.S.
