The title and release date of Ms. Sierra’s debut album, “There’s a Place for Us,” was announced today. Recorded in London last year, this eagerly awaited album is set to be released on August 24th this year. The album’s title, taken from Bernstein’s West Side Story, sets the theme for the album: celebrating diversity yet unity and inclusion:
“This album was actually inspired by you…each and every one of you! It celebrates the incredible differences in all of us, from every and all walks of life, and how combining those unique qualities can bring us together as human beings. That togetherness can accomplish and create anything we allow our world to; no matter what others in power may say at the present moment. Art, music, and culture can act as warriors for these beliefs, support the idea of unity, and break down prejudice barriers currently associated with our world,” Ms. Sierra said when asked about the inspiration for the album.
