AUSTIN, Texas – Mia Garcia, the Austin sixth grader who made international headlines in late 2018 for being the youngest artist to ever win a Tejano Music Award, continues to have an eventful year. Not only has she released more music since winning the honor for Best New Artist – Female, she also has some exciting events scheduled for March.
On Thursday, March 14, Mia will perform with Austin-based rapper/singer-songwriter SaulPaul during his “Parks, Rec & Chill Official SXSW Day Party” at the Doris Miller Auditorium in East Austin. Mia and SaulPaul have taken the hit song “Rise” and put a Latin flavor to it, where Mia sings the chorus in Spanish. Mia will be part of the SaulPaul All-Stars, a collective of talented young musicians handpicked to join the artist himself, and will join an extraordinarily diverse lineup of accomplished musicians, including Uncle Devin, South African Jazz musician Sy Ntuli, and the multi-talented SierraShanté. Doors open at 1 p.m., badge required. More information available here.
