“Sing (La La La)” Along with Alecia Renece

The Alchemist

Born in Virginia, Raised in Maryland, and currently residing in Washington D.C., Alecia Renece embodies the spirit of the DMV music scene with her extensive artistic endeavors including, but not limited to her obvious passion for both music and photography. 

Her latest single, “Sing (La La La),” shows her vocal and lyrical prowess with intrinsic harmonies from the very first note. The mood begins in a reflective and thoughtful place before taking on a happier more encouraging disposition, though the track feels a bit haunting from start to finish. It is reminiscent of Bill Withers’ “Lean On Me,” but instead of reliance on one another, Renece venerates the power of song. 

You can find more about Alecia Renece’s music and art including her latest album Play VOL. II (August 2020) at and Play VOL. I (January 2020) is presently available on all major platforms. Both are excellent listens for fans of classic R&B artists such as Bill Withers and Van Morrison.

On October 29th, Olney Theatre Center wrapped its run of Prince Gomolvilas’ ‘The Brothers Paranormal.’ The disconcerting, borderline terrifying production was co-directed by Olney’s Senior Associate Artistic Director, Hallie Gordon, and Velz herself. The show was one of the spookiest times I have had in a theatre in quite some time. It was evident that the show was a well researched labor of love.
