London based singer-songwriter Sofia performs an intimate live cover of Jessie J's hit debut single 'Do It Like A Dude', nearly a year since the March 2014 release of her debut EP 'Once Upon A Time'.
Against a glorious backdrop of sprawling Lebanese mountains, Sofia rivals Jessie J with her soft yet strong vocals as she performs a minimalist acoustic cover of the track, accompanied by an electric guitarist. It's certainly a large step away from the pop hook-laden smash that was the original; a catchy Platinum certified epic that was released off the back of Jessie J's much-admired debut album 'Who You Are'. There's a strength of identity and character to the song that makes it perfectly suited to half Venezuelan and half Lebanese Sofia, who proudly identifies as gay despite the fact that it is illegal to practise homosexuality in Lebanon.
Inspiring fans with her strength and pride, Sofia hit the road this month, performing a string of shows throughout the UK which will continue towards the end of January 2015. She is joined by pal Siv Jakobsen, with whom she attended Berklee College of Music in Boston. Sofia released her debut EP 'Once Upon A Time' last year, in a bid to tell of her struggles in her journey to adulthood.
