NBC’s The Voice Star CHEESA to Headline at 2013 CAF

_MG_5980-1smCleveland, OH – The girl who Cee Lo Green dubbed, “the next power singer of our generation,” will be appearing at the 2013 Cleveland Asian Festival on May 18 and 19, 2013.

Cheesa rose to stardom when she turned heads during the second season of The Voice with her powerful range and colorful personality.  Her promotional single, I’m Not Perfect (feat. Charice) hit #1 in Asia and #12 on the U.S. iTunes chart. In the past year, Cheesa’s talent has taken her overseas. She recently appeared as a guest mentor on Simon Cowell’s X-Factor: Philippines and has been a fixture in the Philippine media.


Cheesa just released an R&B/pop track with an infectious dance beat, Fall Again, as her up-tempo sophomore debut. It is an anthem about growing up and letting go – a love song without reservations.  Cheesa’s full-length album, Naked, will drop on April 30, 2013.
