Cuban Puerto Rican Singer, songwriter, and fashionista MARi is like any artist on a first name basis in the world- Madonna, Beyoncé, Bowie, Prince, Gaga, Pink, or Cher. Native New Yorker MARi embodies all the makings of a superstar and then some. For starters she is runway ready from the moment she wakes up and is larger than life by the time she takes the stage with a fleet of wigs and dresses that were likely picked from a thrift store but still could make even the most sensational model jealous. More importantly, her voice is pure pop gold with a hearty serving of soul as it sashays its way through dance, reggae, and latin rhythms that are not only insanely infectious, but instantly empowering and soul stirring.
If unequivocally enraptured audiences are the barometer thus far, whether it’s on her own solo headlining excursions, opening for major music festivals alongside Amara La Negra, Meghan Trainor, Ashanti, & Paula Abdul, there is no doubt that MARi is about to blow up well beyond the stratosphere. But even more than her powerhouse pipes, fierce fashion sensibilities and post show taco truck that finds the fabulous singer and an equally over the top entourage grilling for her fantastic fans (more on that later), authenticity is arguably the relatively newcomer’s most compelling quality. That is really saying something considering her boundless energy and envelope- pushing aesthetic as an all around entertainer could literally stop traffic! MARi got a #13 on the Billboard Dance club chart with her song “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” and is currently topping charts across the globe with her single “Chicas Malas” featuring Frida Sofia after an exquisite debut on Despierta America and a mega media tour across all major outlets MARi is gearing up for her next major collab with Puerto Rican artist Brray, followed up by her debut solo EP.
Apart from major parades and festivals across the US, MARi also participates in fashion week in NYC & London for major designers. MARi was also one of the most popular artists on the show “La Voz US” where Luis Fonsi was her coach and a great admirer of her talent. Heads up, you will see MARi on a new major show with more details coming very soon!
