Coming in hot after opening for Maroon 5, ONEREPUBLIC, Kelly Clarkson, and David Kushner at Audacy’s We Can Survive 2023 concert at Prudential Center, Izza’s ‘Holiday Secret’ is the perfect song to add to all your festive playlists this winter.

Hailed by Genius as this “digital generation’s superstar” –  Izza encourages listeners to find freedom in being themselves, even if that means going against social normalcy. Izza prides herself on creating music that encourages everyone and anyone to focus on self-love and normalize vulnerability. Izza is also an advocate for mental health and has performed at 320 Festival, alongside artists like Chris Martin of Coldplay, Elohim, and Social House.

About the author

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
