The next edition of the Emmy-nominated webcast, SKYVILLE LIVE promises to be an epic night of music featuring rising R&B/pop star MIESA, American soul sensation ANDRA DAY and iconic vocal stylist PATTI AUSTIN. The show will stream live exclusively via go90, a free mobile video platform available across all wireless carriers, and on AOL.com Thursday, February 25, 2016 8/7c.
MIESA recently featured as TIDAL’s Rising Artist will be joined by ANDRA DAY, whose song “Rise Up” was nominated for a Grammy (Best R&B Performance) and PATTI AUSTIN. Austin has been a bonafide entertainer since she stepped onto the stage of the historic Apollo Theater in Harlem when she was just four years old at the urging of music legend Dinah Washington. Austin rocketed to the top of the New York session scene in the ’70s, adding her distinctive voice to recordings by Paul Simon, Diana Ross, James Brown, Bette Midler, Michael Jackson, Ray Charles and many others. Later, she signed with Quincy Jones’ Quest label and achieved mainstream success with her Grammy-nominated hit “Baby Come To Me” and Oscar nominated “How Do You Keep the Music Playing.” In 2007, she won a Grammy for her solo album, Avant Gershwin, which introduced her to jazz lovers internationally.
