Yuna, an artist from Malaysia, is coming to perform in Chicago this Friday, January 31. This artists draws influences from and incorporates genres such as R&B, Pop, and folk into her songs.
Yuna has done covers of various songs from artists like Nirvana to the Beetles. My favorites are “Come As You Are: from Nirvana and “Here Comes the Sun” originally by the Beetles. Her voice is very powerful, majestic, and has been praised and recognized as such by The Rolling Stones and the New York Times.
This artist has managed to successfully reach stardom and captivate audiences with her beautiful voice. Tickets for this event are priced at $17. The event will take place at the Harmony Grill in Chicago, starting at 9:00 pm.
Her cover of Nirvana’s “Come As You Are” is definitely moving. It seems so familiar, not only because of the lyrics, but because of the way in which the depth of the song hasn’t been lost despite the drastic change in vocals. Listen and tell me what you think!
