Darnaa makes history in Seoul

ATLANTA -- Pop star Darnaa has been in Seoul, South Korea since May 22, collaborating with the country’s top KPop artists and producers on new music, performing at various events and, most importantly, offering her support and condolences to families affected by the recent ferry accident.

The culmination of Darnaa's trip will come as she records and releases a tribute song with Z.HERA in honor of those who died in the ferry tragedy, making her first African-American artist to ever release a song in South Korea.  

Best known for hit singles "Runaway," "Calling It Love," "We All Sleep Alone" and "The Moment,” Darnaa’s rise to stardom began on YouTube. In only a few months and without a major record label’s support, Darnaa’s videos were shared over 3 million times. As her fan base continued to grow, she quickly rose to #3 on ReverbNation’s National Indie Artist Ranking.
