What makes you happiest? For us, it might just be the chance to witness Zimbabwean-born, Melbourne-based vocal powerhouse Thando deliver a captivating live performance of her standout single “Happy.” While we, unfortunately, cannot do that every single day of the calendar year, we have the next best thing: an exclusive All Eyes On performance and interview with the soon-to-be Australian star.
Championed as a commanding performer on and off the stage, Thando’s impressive ability for narrative storytelling in the realm of R&B and soul have earned her comparisons to the likes of Jill Scott, H.E.R, and Aretha Franklin. It’s easy to see why. Her genre-bending sound and electrifying presence has not only earned her acclaim but supports slots alongside the likes of Leon Bridges, Maxwell, REMI, and Sampa the Great. And if there’s anything we took away from Thando’s magnificent live performance, it’s that it is only a matter of time until she solidifies her status as Australia’s newest first lady of R&B. Furthermore, we can confidently say that we’ve never witnessed an artist more grateful to simply perform her art – that alone earned lifelong fans out of us.
