In independent and industry music worlds, our Fly Friend, Cocoa Sarai‘s single “Raining In My Room” has been long desired and needed. In a time where real R&B is scarce, the vocal acrobat rejuvenates her audience with her transparency and her lyrics restore the art that belongs in music.

After leaving her mark during her live performance of “Raining In My Room” at NYC’s famed the Studio at Webster Hall, the song became an instant fan favorite. The audience was compelled by Cocoa’s passionate and emotional performance. Known by anyone who has seen her perform live or read one of her many music and show reviews, Cocoa is a rare breed of a true and natural performer. Yet something was still different, stronger, about this performance.Cocoa sang through her tears and beyond her heart, and the audience cried with her, for her, as it swiftly and softly spread through the crowd that just a few days prior, Cocoa Sarai’s mother lost her battle with cancer. “Raining In My Room” was her mother’s favorite song and every incredibly beautiful note was hit in her honor.

“My mother was funny, loud, out spoken, kind-hearted and so much more. So many textures to her personality. My mother was in the hospital fighting cancer when she heard the song and said she loved it; said it was the best song I have! She was a singer too and never liked anything”.- Cocoa Sarai
