POSTPONED: Ka Lia Universe
January 12 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
New date to be determined.
Born the daughter of Laotian Hmong immigrants, St. Paul singer, rapper and songwriter Ka Lia Universe would first discover her love for music participating in the school choir & jamming to Britney Spears and Alicia Keys records in her free time. But after receiving huge reactions to the videos she posted online, she realized music could be more than just a hobby. Soon she was sneaking into her brother’s room while he was away to teach herself how to play his guitar and piano. At just 14 she was composing original songs and playing shows around the Twin Cities.
A decade later, she has an even stronger vision and newfound reverence for her heritage. The singer has since released four genre-bending self-produced, written & engineered albums that mix pop, hip-hop, R&B and language barriers alike! Her unique sound and special brand of “Hmonglish” have led to over 11 million streams, mainstream television and radio play, and shows across the globe. She encourages listeners to step outside their box & into a new, well… Universe.
