Music in the Stacks: CT State Troubadour Nekita Waller
Sunday, July 28, 2019
5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Join us as Connecticut's 17th State Troubadour, Nekita Waller performs a mix of pop and soul favorites alongside some original pieces for this month's Music in the Stacks. Refreshments will be served.
“Music is my purest form of communication. It doesn’t care how much money you have, where you were born, the color of your skin, or how old you are,” notes Nekita. “There is no greater feeling or purpose than to help another person. Whether it is to make someone smile, dance, brighten their day or help them reach a better level of themselves, this is life’s greatest award.”
Nekita Waller is Connecticut's 17th State Troubadour, the first African American solo and non-folk artist to be appointed as State Troubadour. Nekita was recently named by Connecticut Magazine as one of Connecticut's 40 under 40. She has been highlighted on NPR, the Hartford Courant, Hartford Magazine, Connecticut Magazine, The Associated Press, the New Haven Register, CTPost and Middletown Press. Her original Connecticut Anthem pop song hit the airwaves on the radio and is currently nominated for Song of the Year for 2019's Best of Hartford. Nekita is visiting schools across the state as an ambassador of music and song, mentoring students, leading workshops, and performing at assemblies.
