We are very excited to announce that local girl Waseelah will be performing at the Mela at 11.25am
Waseelah, 18, was raised in Walsall and performed at the Walsall Town Festival, and more recently at the We are Walsall Unity and Diversity event at The Crossing.
My music is faith based using ideas that I’ve learned through studying my religion and life experience.
I’m a classically trained musician and have been song writing for six years now and also produce my own music. An album of my own making will be available soon.
Have a listen to a short sample of a recent song “Jewellery Box”
