One of Dallas, Texas's brightest rising stars in soul music–Latoya Cooper–debuts her brand new single "Love Affair" today. The new single follows the release of Latoya's triumphant 'Hear Me Roar' EP in the third quarter of 2017.
"I wrote 'Love Affair' on my birthday, after sitting down and having a humble reflecting of my life. Music is a spiritual experience for me and over time, I learned it is the same for many others… it 's about tapping into a place of gratitude and thankfulness from God." –Latoya Cooper
Latoya will hit the stage at Rockwood Music Hall's Stage 1 in NYC to celebrate the release of her new single for Grammy Weekend on Friday, January 26. Showtime is at 7PM.
As a Senior Management Analyst for a government agency, Latoya's music career and professional career in business collide in her new event/workshop series Music Meets The Boardroom, which aims to empower other independent artists like herself. Latoya will be partnering with industry expert Mike Finkel for the inaugural workshop on March 3rd in Dallas, Texas.
