Jazz at MOCA: Karina Iglesias
The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), North Miami is featuring Karina Iglesias as part of the monthly “Jazz at MOCA” series. Born and raised in Miami to Honduran parents, Iglesias’ sound mirrors the diverse musical and cultural influences that have shaped her character and forged her individuality as an artist. A veteran of the Miami live music scene, Iglesias has highly-focused artistic vision, rich cultural background and proclivity for harnessing a wide range of production techniques, which showcases her strong elements of innovation and brings a much-needed return to the authenticity of pure soul music.
In 2013, Iglesias was selected as a top contestant on NBC’s hit show “The Voice.” Her incredible performance of “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World” turned into a YouTube sensation overnight, and every judge had glowing comments after her performances. In 2012, Iglesias sang a duet with Franco de Vita and was featured in his live DVD album, “En Primera Fila,” which won two Latin GRAMMY Awards®. She has also shared the stage with artists including Beatriz Luengo, Alejandra Guzmán and Gilberto Santa Rosa. The public is invited to come sit under the stars and enjoy the pure soul music of Iglesias.
The museum galleries will be open by donation from 7–10 p.m.
