This past Thursday, one of Verve Music Group’s newest signings, YUNA, graced the stage of the “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” marking her second national television performance. The Malaysian-born songstress performed her duet with multi-platinum recording artist OWL CITY, “Shine Your Way.” The track is the theme song for Dream Works Animation’s 3D comedy film, THE CROODS, and the performance can be seen here.
“Shine Your Way” was also performed by American Idol finalists on last Thursday’s results show. The performance medley can be seen here.
In a considerably short amount of time, YUNA has become an internationally recognized name with this past year marking her a breakout in North America. YUNA released her self-titled, full-length debut and received critical acclaim from numerous press outlets. Rolling Stone championed her as having, “certified indie cred and massive pop potential,” and Complex described her as, “a deeply refreshing addition to America’s musical landscape.” She’s performed on national television, was a finalist for MTV Iggy’s “Best New Band In The World,” has had multiple songs featured in movies and on soundtracks, and played both Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo.
