Neo-soul sensation Andra Day has been on a whirlwind of success in 2016. Her debut project, Cheers to the Fall and her single, “Rise Up”, were nominated for two 2016 GRAMMY Awards (where she performed and shared a duet with Ellie Goulding); she also performed at last week’s Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia; and last year she sang at the White House and starred in a commercial’s for Coca-Cola and Apple with her friend, mentor, and admirer, Mr. Stevie Wonder.
