    MORE ABOUT ISA:
    The granddaughter of famed Cuban vocalist and actress Isaura Mendoza, Isa (born Isa Marina Lopez) is an extraordinarily talented Bronx-born singer, songwriter, and model who has earned rightful comparisons to Alicia Keys, Selena, and Aaliyah. Isa’s music is reflective of her multi-faceted personality, soulful roots, edgy exterior, and overpowering vocal ability (she’s a trained Dramatic Soprano with a range spanning from D3 to D6).

    Inspired by the legendary Maria Callas’ performance in Puccini’s Tosca, Isa, at the age of 14, enrolled at The Marianela Sanchez School of Music in the Dominican Republic, where she was classically trained and mentored by celebrated Lyric Soprano, Marianela Sanchez.

    Her debut EP Montage takes on contemporary pop music. After graduating college Isa joined forces with a local production team for the hit “Higher.” Now training with New York Vocal Coaching director David McCall, Isa is prepping the release of her sophomore project ‘Mirrors’ Volume I.
