Malaysian vocalist Yuna is certainly making waves and we are so happy that an alternative aesthetic (read: a modestly dressed Muslim girl singing positive songs) is getting some love in the mainstream for once.

Above, catch Yuna performing a beautiful live rendition of “Live Your Life” on The Conan O’Brien Show during her American TV debut! There is something so comforting about that warmth in her vocal quality.

Find the lovely lady on her US tour beginning later this month!

How can you not love Yuna? Seriously. She is like, incredibly adorable and graceful and talented all at once. Hopefully you all checked out our earlier post when we first mentioned “Live Your Life” and a Nirvana cover. Otherwise, just watch the video for the Pharrell produced “Live Your Life” and just try, try to act like you aren’t in love.

She is quite easy on the eyes, no? Further, we’d say it’s pretty awesome to see a hijabi (colloquially, a headscarf-wearing Muslim woman) doing her singing thing without having to flash all her stuff. Get em!

New Track: Yuna – “Live Your Life”

 

Definitely one of our favorite voices right now – so refreshing, distinct with character. Malaysian singer-songwriter Yuna recently released her inspiring “Live Your Life” single featuring production from none other than mister Pharrell Williams. The track is the first single from her upcoming self-titled album due this spring.

For those unfamiliar with Yuna, you absolutely must take a listen to her cover of Nirvana’s “Come As You Are” after the jump.
