WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — In honor of Black History Month, the West Palm Beach Downtown Development Authority is showcasing Black artists.

This Wednesday night the spotlight is on Meecah. The West Palm Beach native is a singer and an actress.

She is the second artist of six flexing their talents throughout February in the authority's virtual "Black Art Matters" series.

"They reached out to me and they said, 'We know you are an artist. Let's do this thing. Let's do live music.' And I said, 'Yeah, let's do it,'" she said.

Meecah sings songs she's written herself to music by Houston to Anita Baker.

The timely programming for Black History Month is the brainchild of marketing director Tiffany Faublas.

"We have everything ranging from singers, to painters to a pianist to a saxophonist, so it is a wide variety," she said.

It's a wide variety that honors the contributions of local Black artists. The series streams live on Facebook.

"We wanted to make sure that we supported, promoted and also amplified our young, talented Black artists in our community," she said.

When Meecah isn't crooning a beautiful tune, she's a cast member in the musical Hamilton.
