A child of the globe, the bright-eyed young singer has grown up in five countries including Canada, Germany, the UK, the US, and is currently finishing high-school in The Netherlands.

AvailableHERE, “Girl” touches on a subject that’s rarely discussed in any forum, the emotional damage inflicted when, as Missal sings, “women hate on other women.” The stripped-back yet intricately textured track unfolds with both gentle playfulness and piercing vulnerability.
“It’s been amazing to see this huge influx of art, music and media by women and for women intended to support and encourage every kind of women to claim our space. I think it’s important to identify what makes us stronger and louder, and we have proven that we can shift the culture around us by coming together to address our common issues and goals,” says Donna Missal. “When we criticize and attack one another, we diminish our voice in the conversation for equality and social change, so I wanted to write something that speaks on that experience. I don’t know a single woman who hasn’t experienced this in some way, and I want to see that change.”
The official video, directed by Justin Bettman, can be viewedHERE. Bettman who has earned acclaim for the ongoing art project Set in the Street, which repurposes found materials to create interior sets on city streets also helmed the video for Missal’s, “Driving.”
“Girl,” which was produced by Tim Anderson (Solange, BANKS, Halsey), is the third in a series of two-track singles from Missal. The A-side is a studio version of “Girl” while the B-side is a stripped-down live take. Today, Missal also shared a live performance video of the song. View “Girl” (Live from Capitol Studios) HERE.
Missal, who will release her full-length debut on Harvest Records later this year, will open forMax Frostat Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn on June 20 and headline The Hi-Hat in Los Angeles on June 23.
Her debut single, “Keep Lying,” premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1, then shot to the top of the Spotify Viral and HypeMachinecharts. Hailed by Milk as an earth-shaking vocalist with unique resonance, she is featured on two tracks from Macklemore’s latest album, Gemini: “Over It” which she co-wrote, and “Glorious.” Missal also featured on Rudimental‘s “No Fear” and co-wroteLeon Bridges, “BetAin’t Worth the Hand.” “Power,” an original song she co-wrote with Baz Luhrmann and recorded for Netflix’s “The Get Down” won a Hollywood Music in Media Award for Best Original Song. Her songs have also been licensed by such shows as; House of Lies, Easy and The Vampire Diaries.

ABOUT SOUTHERN HALO
Natalia (principal songwriter, guitarist, lead vocalist), Christina (drums) and Hannah (bass) are SOUTHERN HALO. Since their hypnotically-upbeat Country radio debut, “Little White Dress,” caught the attention of U.S. radio and press (spending eight weeks at #1 on the International Hotdisc Chart) this sibling trio has broken down doors and shattered glass ceilings. Their sophomore single, “Rewind,” was a U.S. Top 40 MusicRow CountryBreakout™ Chart hit that also held the #1 spot on the Hotdisc Chart for two weeks. The group’s third single, “Living Like That,” quickly found success of its own. Those three singles, from the group’s previous CD, SOUTHERN HALO (2015), further bolstered the trio’s profile. Since landing in the National Finals of the 2014 Texaco Country Showdown as the youngest competitors ever, the band has opened for Maren Morris, Phil Vassar, Deana Carter, Love and Theft, Brantley Gilbert, Eric Paslay, Tyler Farr, Parmalee, Old Dominion, American Young, Blues immortal B.B. King and legendary chanteuse Dionne Warwick, among many others. The Cleveland, Mississippi natives have performed at a pre-show on the rooftop terrace of the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles and launched Townsquare Media’s Say It With Pepsi Concert Series. They entertained fans at CMA Music Festival 2016, and have twice toured the U.K. When they are not on the road, the Morris sisters now call Nashville home.

Following 5SOS five-plus years of recording and touring behind its first two albums both of which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 the band decamped across the hemisphere to Los Angeles to find a new set of collaborators, influences, and inspirations.

They wrote and recorded the bulk of the album with the Swedish producing-writing team Carl and Rami (Nicki Minaj, Madonna). Other collaborators include Andrew Watt and Ali Tamposi (Camilla Cabello), producer/instrumentalist Mike Elizondo (Dr. Dre, Eminem, Fiona Apple), producer/engineer Noah Passovoy (Maroon 5), J Kash (Maroon 5, Charlie Puth), Asia Whitacre (Hailee Steinfeld, Zedd) and Andrew Goldstein (Linkin Park, Simple Plan).

Southern Halo is comprised of three young ladies who hail from Cleveland, Mississippi. Endorsed by Gibson Guitars, the multitalented Morris sisters can all sing, play instruments and write most of their songs. Their latest country album, JUST LIKE IN THE MOVIES, showcases their passion for life and all things in between. Natalia (guitar), Christina (drums) and Hannah (bass) have been influenced by artists like Avril Lavigne, Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake. With powerful harmonies, top-notch production and instrumentation, this trio is nearly unstoppable. Many of their songs contain strong lyrical content which is extremely current in today’s march for gender equality. One of our favorite tracks is “I Think Too Much.” It’s an ode to second guessing your initial instincts in any given situation. Another anthemic track is “Anything Is Possible,” a motivational piece of art that’s about breaking glass ceilings in order to progress to the next level.
In short, Southern Halo is an intellectually sophisticated group of youthful women who know what they want and are determined to get it.
Produced by Max Martin and ILYA, written by Ariana, Max Martin, ILYA, and Savan Kotecha, “No Tears Left To Cry” is the first single from her upcoming highly anticipated full-length album.
In addition, she simultaneously unveiled the song’s music video, directed by Grammy Award®-winning director Dave Meyers, on VEVO this morning. Watch it HERE.
ABOUT ARIANA GRANDE
With her powerful vocals and astonishing range, Ariana Grande has emerged as one of the most magnetic and massively successful performers in pop music today. At age 24 she’s delivered three platinum-selling albums and surpassed 18 billion streams, in addition to nabbing four Grammy Award nominations and landing eight hits in the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. With her most recent album — 2016’s critically acclaimed Dangerous Woman — Grande both boldly defies expectation and reveals the full force of her voice (recently hailed as an “extraordinary, versatile, limitless instrument” upon Grande’s appearance on Time’s “100 Most Influential People” list).
Since making her full-length debut with 2013’s Yours Truly (featuring the game-changing, triple-platinum smash “The Way”), Grande has brought her striking vocal presence to a genre-blurring breed of pop, taking on R&B, soul, and electronic music with equal nuance and assurance. Arriving in 2014, her sophomore effort, My Everything, garnered a Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album and spawned the 6x-platinum hits “Problem” and “Bang Bang” (a Grammy nominee for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance). Through the years, the longtime actress and former Broadway star has proven the scope of her talent by appearing on Scream Queens and Hairspray Live! and showcased her comedic chops by hosting Saturday Night Live. With her social media following now surging past 200 million, Grande has also earned numerous accolades from the MTV Video Music Awards, iHeartRadio Music Awards, and American Music Awards (including the highly coveted Artist of the Year prize).
The first artist in music history to see the lead single from her first three albums debut on the Billboard Hot 100, Grande embraced a more uncompromising vision than ever before in the making of Dangerous Woman. With People noting that the album “celebrates feminine might,” Entertainment Weekly praised Grande for “having something meaningful to say with that jaw-dropping voice — one of the most exquisite in pop today.” Grande wrapped up her widely lauded Dangerous Woman Tour in support of the album, performing 85 arena shows worldwide.
