About:  

Beauty and the Beats: At the heart of the band’s soulful resonance is the exceptional talent of LaLa DeLo, a Soul and R&B songstress known for her soul-stirring vocals and dynamic versatility. Drawing from her rich foundation in gospel music, DeLo’s artistry has been profoundly shaped by a wide spectrum of musical influences, ranging from legends such as Aretha Franklin, Lionel Richie, and B.B. King to contemporary luminaries like Whitney Houston, Brandy, Jazmine Sullivan, and Ari Lennox.

LaLa DeLo is not only a powerhouse vocalist but also a gifted songwriter, infusing her compositions with profound emotion and authenticity. Her deep appreciation for harmonies and background vocals adds layers of depth to the band’s music, earning her recognition for the “mellow, cello tones of her alto voice.”

In collaboration with the exceptionally talented musicians of Beauty and The Beats, LaLa DeLo’s visionary leadership has propelled the band to create an eclectic repertoire where soul music intertwines seamlessly with every genre they explore, whether through original compositions or creatively reimagined cover songs.
