Official News from Mia Doi Todd:

“This Saturday [today!], July 11, Grand Performances will be premiering a filmed solo performance of five songs from my new album. It was part of the 2020 COLA Fellowship that I received from LA’s Department of Cultural Affairs.”

The hope is that people will tune in to the premiere and watch it together simultaneously from the safety of their homes, but the video will also be available to watch after the premiere.”
