Nilüfer Yanya performed a live set for NPR’s “Tiny Desk (Home) Concert” series. She played three songs from 2019’s Miss Universe—including the live debut of “Paralysed”—along with a new song called “Day 7.”
Early in her performance, Yanya said, “One of the things that’s been on my mind a lot is the racism and violence and injustice going on towards Black people and people of color, not only in America but here in the UK and all over the world.” She continued, “As a person of mixed heritage, this issue is close to my heart.” Watch her full set below.
