When

June 27, 2024    
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Today’s wonderful Jazz artist is Karina Iglesias in the ‘Living Room Concert Series’ at the Blanche Ely House Museum. Born and raised in Miami, Florida to Honduran parents, Karina Iglesias’ sound mirrors the diverse musical and cultural influences that have shaped her character and forged her individuality as an artist. With a style equally informed by rhythm & blues, boleros, gospel and hip-hop Karina delivers her performances with the intimacy of a deep soul crooner and the conviction and drive of a dauntless female singer/songwriter. In 2009, Karina was chosen to be one out of an eight-person choir/ensemble hired by the Miami Dolphins (Dolphins Voices) through Emilio Estefan to sing the anthem at all home games.

In 2011, Karina sang a duet with Sony Latin Recording Artist, Franco de Vita, who has sold over 20 million albums worldwide. She was featured in his live DVD album, Primera Fila, which won 2 Latin Grammy Awards this past November. She has also performed with Wyclef Jean at the Zumba Instructor’s Convention in Orlando in July of 2011. Karina has also been featured on Univision’s Mira Quien Baila, and has shared the stage with Latin artists like Beatriz Luengo, Alejandra Guzmán and Gilberto Santa Rosa to name a few. In 2013, Karina was a contestant on NBC’s #1 Hit TV Show, The Voice. She made it to the Top 16 on the Live Shows. She was originally on Adam Levine’s team but was later stolen by Shakira after her epic performance of “Its a man’s, man’s, man’s world” which turned into a YouTube sensation. With her highly-focused artistic vision, rich cultural background and proclivity for harnessing a wide range of production techniques, Karina Iglesias brings forth a strong element of innovation and heralds a much-needed return to the authenticity of pure soul music.
