When Kina Grannis first emerged in the music scene, we were not only captivated by her beauty, but also her gentle and soothing vocals.
With over a million subscribers and 160 million views on her official YouTube channel, it was only a matter of time before she decides to hold a concert tour to promote her latest album and meet fans around the world. Now, fans’ wishes have come true as the singer-songwriter announced that she will be holding the “Elements” tour with her band in various Southeast Asian countries.
The California-born singer found her passion for music when she was merely a young girl in elementary school. She composed and submitted her work to competitions, picked up playing the violin, and taught herself how to play the guitar. It’s no coincidence that her talents are a wide scope as she knew how to play the piano and the ukulele. She was further catapulted into fame when she was announced the winner of the Doritos Crash the Super Bowl contest. Her music video for “Message From Your Heart” was also shown during the Super Bowl XLII commercials.
Though her winning landed her a contract with Interscope Records, she later deiced to walk away from the major record label to establish herself an independent musician. Since then, she has never looked back as her popularity in the music scene continued to grow.
With her increasing popularity, Grannis is set embark on a headlining world tour this September, with their recently-released EP titled “Gravity”. Malaysia is one of the Southeast Asian countries that has been included, as seen in the poster artwork above.
The “Elements” tour concert would mark the 3rd time Grannis performing in Malaysia as she was previously here for her “In Your Arms” World Tour in 2012 and Reach Out 2014.
Deets are as follows:
- Date: 25th September 2015
- Time: 7:30pm
- Venue: KL Live, Life Centre
UPDATE (23rd September, 4:30pm):
We’ve just received some pretty heartbreaking news. As officially announced by Kina Grannis herself, the remaining dates of her Southeast Asia tour have been postponed indefinitely. This is truly sad, especially since the announcement follows the cancellations of her shows in Singapore, Taiwan, and Hong Kong in the recent weeks.
We’re beyond crushed :(
