Fresh from the stages of Broadway, singer/songwriter/actor, Tara Macri, will
soon be at the top of your playlist with her power-pop girl anthem, Prettiest
Girl in the Room.
Penned by Tara (and co-writer, Joleen Belle), Prettiest Girl in the Room
sends a strong message of empowerment that mixes seamlessly with its delicious
pop hooks and catchy melodies.
“The song is as much a girl anthem as it is about blowing up the princess
myth,” says Tara. “It’s about staying grounded and true to yourself, yet knowing
that if you are having a bad day, it is ok to ask for help and lean on those
around you for the strength to power through to continue to be your best self. I
hope anyone that listens to Prettiest Girl in the Room will hear the mes-sage of
self-empowerment, and use it as another tool to help them accomplish whatever it
is they set out to do.”
With renowned producer, Greg Collins (Gwen Stefani, U2), at the board, and
mixed by Grammy Award winner, Chris Lord-Alge (Alanis Morissette, Michelle
Branch), Prettiest Girl in the Room has everything it needs to catch your
attention and leave you begging for more from this tal-ented artist.
Tara is no stranger to the spotlight. After starring in the critically
acclaimed Broadway produc-tion of Hairspray, and performing at the famed
Hollywood Bowl alongside her friends, Nick Jo-nas, John Stamos, and Drew Carey,
Tara decided to chase her dreams and pursue her first love of singing and
songwriting. Her self-released first single, ‘Strawberry Moon,’ caught the
atten-tion of pop music critics with its ‘alterna-pop’ flavor and ‘giant
melodies.’ The subsequent re-lease, ‘Crazy With You,’ received rave reviews from
KTLA, Pop On and On, Metro and airplay from radio tastemakers. ‘Cardboard
Castles,’ Tara’s third single, garnered national exposure on the popular daytime
soap opera, The Bold & The Beautiful.
Most recently appearing in the pre-Broadway run of The First Wives Club
(written by Linda Bloodworth Thomason), Tara’s tenacity, drive, and incomparable
voice have taken her from her home town of Toronto to the stages of New York and
Chicago, and have finally brought her to the City of Angels.
