The songstress boasts an illustrious career spanning 18 years with 6 studio albums, 4 live DVDs, and even a feature film. Lira has cemented her status as South Africa’s leading lady in the global music scene.

    Her journey began with the release of her debut album “All My Love” in 2003, setting the stage for her rise to stardom. Surpassing the likes of Beyonce on the SA Charts, Lira’s infectious tunes launched her into the limelight. With a string of platinum-certified albums and a number of South African Music Awards (SAMAs), this trailblazer has left an indelible mark on the industry.

    Venturing beyond borders, Lira captivated American audiences with her album “Rise Again,” showcasing the full scope of her artistry. Taking on a tour across the US, she captured her journey in the captivating documentary series “LIRA – Dream Chaser,” appealing to audiences worldwide.

    But Lira isn’t just a musical person, oh no, she is a multifaceted talent. From gracing the silver screen in “THE ITALIAN Consul” to executive producing South African rom-coms, her creative abilities know no bounds.

    In 2016, she released her global masterpiece “Born Free,” portraying a new chapter in her musical journey. Lira took on the role of mentor on South Africa’s rendition of “The Voice,” nurturing the next generation of talent with her extensive musical knowledge.

    Beyond music, Lira’s influence extends to the areas of beauty and beyond. As Bobbi Brown’s first South African influencer, she’s breaking barriers and reshaping perceptions. And let’s not forget her iconic Barbie doll, a testament to her global impact.

    But amongst the glitz and glamour, Lira faced her toughest battle yet—a stroke that threatened to silence her voice forever. Yet, true to form, she emerged stronger, embracing her second chance at life with grace and resilience.
