July 16, 2017

When Nikka Costa was ten, she was a pop sensation in Europe. Later, she was Britney Spear’s opening act. But she left pop music behind and now she’s performing songs by the musicians that made a personal impact in her life, including Prince and Frank Sinatra. She tells Charles Monroe-Kane about the strange turns in her life and, with her band, performs several songs in studio.
