The world has had its share of soul singers: Brazen talents that ignite the soul and consume the heart. Soul music serves as a reminder of the varied emotions and experiences we face in life, whether it is a new love or a lost one. Yes, the world has had many soul singers and even more soul albums…but, in recent years, there have been no independent soul singer like Staten Island native Ida Divine.
Ida Divine is a different level kind of artist. Musically talented and vocally gifted, this Staten Island native is undoubtedly one of the most versatile R&B singers in the game at present.
Having shared platforms with the likes of Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Naughty By Nature, Lady Saw and worked with Inspectah Deck from Wu tang Clan and producer Herb Middleton, Ida can comfortably claim her position as one of the most versatile R&B singers in the game at present.
Ida ‘divinely’ flows lyrically in so many tones, that musical masterpieces are born out of each musically genius stroke of music she creates. With purity and realness undulating all over her songs, Ida effortlessly spits fire on up tempo tracks such as Frequency and can then tenderly poeticise about her life on hugely captivating tunes like 1979 and Small Town.
Citing roots reggae, soul and disco as the inspiration behind her music, she has the natural ability to invent music which resonates with people like us and pleasurably transitions her listeners back to good vibes in time whilst also uniquely serving up an exciting new breakthrough sound.
Ida Divine, is a one of a kind artist who like her name sake will remain untouchable and occupy her spot on the most wanted list for years to come.
Ida is still so much more than just her voice, she possesses a presence that is palatable through every venue she performs in. Her voice is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the depth and the strength in her talent, and Divine goes beyond just singing lyrics. The concept of a strong, soulful, funky, and honest album is not a new one, but Ida Divine’s 2015 Album
I Rise to the Top goes beyond the mere idea of such an album it features her international top charting single ‘1979’ still making huge waves since its release.
