Zami opens Berklee series

The singer, songwriter and poet, whose stage name is Zami, performed her original song “Thank You” in tribute to her grandmother, as well as Lianne La Havas’s “They Could Be Wrong.” Inspired by singer-songwriters with a soulful edge, like La Havas, Sara Bareilles, and Corrine Bailey Rae, the songwriting major is writing and producing a solo project that is slated to be released this fall. The virtual free series runs every Wednesday throughout the fall semester at 8pm on the college’s YouTube channel.
