Andra Day is a San Diego native, known for her soulful jazz voice and her hit record, Rise Up.  The record was also nominated for Best R&B Performance in addition to her debut album Cheers to the Fall at the 2016 Grammy Awards. Rolling Stone named her in its 10 Artists You Need to Know in June 2015. In her short career, the singer has performed at the White House for a Ray Charles tribute concert and for a Hilary Clinton presidential rally. Andra delivered the message Rise Up into millions of homes during her performances on Jimmy Kimmel, The Ellen Show, BET Awards, Good Morning America, and the Wendy Williams Show. The San Diego native first premiered Rise Up in a Beats By Dr. Dre commercial featuring Serena Williams prior to performing the breakout single at the 2016 Grammy Awards with Ellie Goulding. Day transcends any record she sings into a powerful and inspirational anthem.
