Why Ra-Re Valverde? Because.

Ra-Re Valverde: amazing voice AND she's pretty...

You might not recognize Ra-Re Valverde‘s name, but you have almost certainly heard her voice before. Having done back ground vocals for Rahsaan Patterson, Jill Scott, Trina Broussard, Lalah Hathaway and Jennifer Lopez, she’s probably graced your ears more than once. Her debut album, A Beautiful Mess, came out last year and she’s spent her time supporting the project as well as working on a follow up. Yesterday, she released a mixed media video “celebrating the spirit of strangers on the streets of New York City and [serving] as the soundtrack for heartbreak and redemption.” The song, entitled Because, sounds like nothing else your ears have heard of late, yet still maintains a decidedly Ra-Re Valverde vibe. The woman is a true artist and does work that fits her instead of trying to her trying to fit the song. I am a huge fan, and hopefully soon, you will be too. Then, we’ll all know the name Ra-Re Valverde.
