NEW YORK - June 13, 2014 - PRLog -- U.S. Pop sensation Darnaa has been in Seoul, South Korea since May 22nd collaborating with the country’s top KPop artists and producers on new music, performing at various events and most importantly offering her support and condolences to families affected by the recent Sewol ferry accident.  The culmination of Darnaa's trip will come as she records and releases a tribute song with Z.HERA in honor of those who died in the ferry tragedy; making her first African American artist to ever release a song in S. Korea.

Best known for hit singles "Runaway," "Calling It Love," "We All Sleep Alone",and "The Moment,” Darnaa’s rise to stardom began as YouTube sensation. In only a few months and without a major record label’s support, Darnaa’s videos were shared over 3 million times.  As her fan base continued to grow she quickly rose to #3 on ReverbNation’s National Indie Artist Ranking.  The young starlet has built a solid reputation as an explosive live performer, and has shared the stage with an array of internationally known artists including B.o.B, DEV, R. Kelly, Travie McCoy, Miguel, T.I., French Montana and SkyBlu (of LMFAO).   To the pleasure of her growing fan base, Darnaa kicked off 2014 by releasing her latest single “Cowgirl.” The song debuted at #29 on iTune's Weekly Top 100 Indie Artists Sales, peaking at #10 without any radio play.  Darnaa was most recently featured in Clear Channel’s artist to watch promotional campaign.

Darnaa’s two-week stint in South Korea will be both a musical and cultural exchange for the artist.  “I can't wait to experience the culture, and learn as much as I can about the different customs--from their style of music to dance to fashion to the food.  I can't wait to learn more about KPop music and have the chance to share mine,” she explains. The artist also has several high profile performances scheduled including a shows at the Indie Music Festival at “Light and Sound Art Hall,” Club Holic (for the Maximum Party) and a collaboration performance at NESTNADA.

Darana’s trip to Seoul has taken on a deeper meaning for her due to the recent MV Sewol ferry tragedy.  "My heart goes out to the families, their friends and a nation suffering the sudden loss of so many children to such an unacceptable accident.” To honor and mourn those lost, Darnaa is bringing yellow ribbons to Seoul sewn by Korean-Americans and wearing a yellow scarf with the words "Your sorrow is our sorrow" inscribed in Korean. She’ll conclude her trip by releasing the tribute song with Z.HERA.
