Growing within a talented family in Leicester, Mahalia Burkmar was always designed to makeher mark on the music world. Signed to Asylum Records at the young age of 13, her gifts were lovingly honed and supported by her parents, both who hail from musical backgrounds. The last few years have seen the singer go viral with41 million views on a COLOURS session, tour internationally both as a support act and a headline name, collaborate with well-loved artists such as Burna Boy, Ella Mai and Little Simz and release her long-awaited debut album ‘Love and Compromise’. With such an impressive host of achievements under her wing at the age of 21, it’s little wonder that Mahalia found herself nominated for the 2020 BRITs Best Female Solo Artist Award, her second BRIT nomination following on from being one of three BRIT’s Critics Choice Award nominees in 2019. Mahalia also has a Best R&B GRAMMY nomination for ‘All I Need’ to look forward to in 2021. She also snapped up three MOBO nominations for Best Female Act, Best R&B/Soul Act and Album Of The Year for Love and Compromise, winning in the first two categories.
