Listen to SOLA transform Michael Jackson’s ‘Billie Jean’ into a slow ballad

22-year-old SOLA was introduced to music by her father at a young age and she’s since credited him for her broad range of her musical influences. With a cultured childhood filled with smooth R&B and soul classics, this Nigerian born singer was raised listening to iconic artists such as Anthony Hamilton, Angie Stone, Destiny’s Child, Boyz II Men, K-Ci and Jojo, Uncle Sam, and many more.

SOLA, real name Gbemisola Oludare, began singing in music class. After the praise she received, she knew that music was a path she was needed to follow. Learning guitar shortly after, she was able to combine her skills and start creating the music she had always dreamt of creating.

With one of her cover song videos amassing 25,000 views on YouTube alone, the young soul singer is beginning to kickstart her online fan base and prepare for her future live performances. In her latest video, SOLA makes her mark on Michael Jackson’s iconic ‘Billie Jean’. Her version is stripped back, beautifully performed and provides a haunting country cover that’s truly unforgettable.
