A 2016 Source Magazine Unsigned Hype, Yusha Assad makes music that tells a story and inspires greatness. He believes that his success must be built with the hands and hearts of people, and not off their backs. Assad has opened for major artists, such as The Game, K. Michelle, Brandy, Scarface, Ja Rule, and August Alsina, among others. He has performed at conferences including A3C Festival in Atlanta, SXSW in Austin, and Revival DC in the nation’s capital. His most recent release is the single “Heal Me” featuring Grammy-nominated R&B star Raheem DeVaughn, which addresses the topics of mental health and healing. Assad is currently working on growing his music app, and his project Workin & Winnin was released in July 2020. Part of Washington Performing Arts’ Mars Arts DC: Virtual.
