Listen to Don’t Know Tomorrow below.
Hometown: Malisa Grace is a young singer-songwriter from Leeds.
Style: Malisa started singing in a church choir and attributes this upbringing to her soulful and versatile style. Don’t Know Tomorrow fuses modern beats and synths with more classical instrumentation and strings to produce a seriously catchy pop track for fans of Emeli Sande and Alicia Keys, one of Grace’s key influences. It’s taken from her debut EP, due for release later this year.
You need to know: Head to Grace’s YouTube channel to see videos of her covers of tracks by Keys, Justin Timberlake and Swedish House Mafia’s Don’t You Worry.
Supported by: Among others, Malisa has been supported by BBC Introducing in West Yorkshire and Huw Stephens on Radio 1.
