After a viral debut single in 2016, Leicester native Mahalia has gone from strength to strength, earning herself a BRITs Critics’ Choice Award nomination and a legion of fans. Her soulful R&B tones are reminiscent of legendary soul names such as Lauryn Hill and Erykah Badu, and at just 21, she mixes silky vocals, an acute sense for melodies and thought-provoking lyrics with the ease of a seasoned artist.
