Lira to sing for President Barack Obama

Lira
Local diva Lira is set to perform at Us Present Barack Obama's inaugural ball in Washington DC. Lira, whose real name is Lerato Molapo, will bring her African magic to the event. The I’m A Believer singer’s manager and husband Robin Kohl confirmed that Lira had landed the prestigious gig, which he described as “massive”. He said: “There are several themed balls that take place for the inauguration. There is a new addition with an African theme that focuses on African artists. Lira was short listed for this and we are absolutely stoked to confirm that she will be performing.” Paddy Harper of City Press reported that Robin added: “We have been plugging away at the US market for three years now. We have an independent distributor and a publicist in LA. We have been there about three months of every year and people are now getting to know who she is.” He added: “This is an amazing opportunity. The ball will be televised by networks from all over the world. The exposure is massive. How many people can say that they have performed live for an African-American US president?  “We are ecstatic about this. We have really worked hard at breaking into the US market and now it seems to be paying off at last.”
