Throughout April in Manhattan Beach, local musician Delfina will be singing and playing guitar for the final 15 minutes of Amy B’s power vinyasa classes on Mondays (9:30-10:45AM). Let’s get to know her, shall we?!
Favorite song to sing? I love to test my vocal range by singing along to Sia, Adele, and Sarah Bareilles.
Favorite show you ever performed? My favorite show ever was in Times Square for New Years Eve. I was sponsored by Nivea and performed in front of 1.2 million people to ring in 2010. (Here’s the video for the commercial I sang for!)
Favorite place to spend time in the south bay? I love to spend time in the sun…reading, catching up on emails, and writing articles about Meatless Monday for my column with Muscle & Fitness.
When you’re not singing, what do you do for fun? If I’m not singing I’m at the gym. I’m a recent vegetarian and making sure I stay healthy is number one for me. Being fit, eating well, and living compassionately are important values of mine.
Best thing about singing for a yoga class? Savasana is a sacred time for anyone who’s just moved their body for an hour in class. Getting to sing fills me with joy and it’s a special honor. I make sure to choose songs that I feel will touch each person’s heart and prepare them for the week ahead.
What inspires you when writing music? My inspiration for writing comes from beyond me. Like most things in life, writing has its own rhythm and flow. There are times I write a lot and there are times I simply observe life around me. But when I do pen a song, I make sure my words are authentic, my voice is pure, and my message meaningful. (Editor’s note: Talk about powerful – listen to her song “Believe!”)
Tell us about your upcoming show! April 28th at The Comedy Magic Club’s Lounge (in Hermosa Beach) is my first show back in LA after my recent move back from NYC. It’s going to be a packed house of cool and inspired artists and fans, and it’s a great place to meet people and have fun. (Tickets are available now!) There’s another show at St. Rocke in Hermosa on May 14th!
