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.

The Samsung Doers Defying Barriers series presents powerhouse singer-songwriter, poet and musician, MILCK. At Samsung 837, we put a spotlight on artists who are using technology to share their message, break down walls and connect with others. MILCK had originally promised to study medicine, but bravely embarked on a non-traditional path in music. For several years, she struggled and overcame many obstacles in her career, before making a mark with the viral anthem, “Quiet.” In 2017 she made the bold choice to release the single on her own and, with the help of technology, shared it with listeners around the world. Here’s your chance to see her perform live and to get a first hand account of her remarkable journey. Samsung 837 will be buzzing, so RSVP now and get here early for an event you won’t want to miss.
