SAKAI: Dream Big*Winner of the Los Angeles Black Music Award for Best Neo Soul Recorded Performance for the album "Dream Big"*
You've heard her before, you just didn't know......
Great singers surround themselves with great singers, and Sakai is no exception. Though her name might not sound familiar, her voice has probably already touched you. From being the first voice you hear on Celine Dion's "A New day", to vocals on records with Oleta Adams, Curtis Mayfield and Tower of Power to live performances with Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder, and Chaka Khan, Sakai is called on by the best.
A native of the San Francisco Bay Area, Sakai has traveled the world sharing her gift of song and beauty. Though not one to be confined by "labels", Sakai had chosen to explore her soul, urban and inspirational ballad roots on her independently released sophomore album entitled "Dream Big." The album expresses life, love and pain from a soul who has been touched by others and is now giving back through her gift of song.
As expressed through her fist single "I Like," love is a universal theme. The infectious mid tempo groove has the touch of Dwayne Wiggins of Tony!, Toni!, TonÃ©! on guitar, is supported by a multi format maxi single with club mixes by DJ Pause, DJ David Harness and the Disciples and has a broadcast ready music video produced by the Xzault Media Group. (The "I Like" Maxi-Single WITH remixes & music video is also available on CD Baby!)
This Sakai's second full length album again, produced by Family Tree Productions takes you on a 17 song journey of life, happiness, disappointments and faith. Sakai's vocal performance is phenomenal as she sings over songs co-written by Narada Michael Walden, Larry Batiste & Andre Pessis, Paizley and Darkside. Sakai and her 7 piece live band are prepared to share their gifts. Sakai promises to stay true to her message...
Touching hearts and lives through music.
