Thank You from We Love Soul!

Thank You to everyone who supported We Love Soul's Pre-NYE Celebration "The Party of The Year"! We really appreciate you! The vibe was just right and felt it was awesome closing out 2013 with you. Thank you supporting our endeavor of bringing this event "home" and supporting our vision of presenting a classy, sexy, yet underground vibe on the Southside. The venue and location, the music, and the people were all on point. This was a very special experience for us and once again appreciate you for the awesome times we had in 2013 and look forward to more good times in 2014!
Photos are on the way soon...

MTV Made’s Award winning singer-activist Maya Azucena travels the world making music that matters. Self-described as sounding like “The Roots if fronted by a singer with 4-octaves,” Billboard and the Washington Post have heralded her mesmerizing performances, as well as the Village Voice that said, “armed with a powerfully compelling voice, Azucena just could be the most impressive of the current hip-hop/soul/R&B diva crop.” Appreciated by many artists in the worlds of hip-hop, soul, jazz, dance and reggae, Maya has been part of countless collaborations, including a Grammy certificate winning feature on Stephen Marley’s CD “Mind Control,” and performances or recordings with artists as wide-ranging as Marcus Miller, Cormega, Mr. Cheeks, Roberta Flack, Immortal Technique, iNi Kamoze, Vernon Reid and Jonathan Peters. In 2010, Maya was heard on multiple tracks from the critically acclaimed album Pickin’ Up The Pieces by Fitz and The Tantrums. Her music has been featured on HBO’s The Wire and her likeness on NBC’s 30 Rock. Maya’s latest CD, CRY LOVE has been listed on several “Best of” 2011 lists including #1 on Pop Matters, and Amazon’s “Top Albums You May Have Missed.”
