After discovering her capacity to empower others, Luminosa dares to stand out from the crowd. With the feeling of loneliness and darkness evading everyone’s personal spaces, she is on a mission to spread love and acceptance in any circumstances. Luminosa does this through her music.
Even as a child, Mary Kathleen Cassidy, known as Luminosa, was musically inclined. Luminosa’s mother recounts hearing her daughter sing even before she could talk. At church, the young infant was known to harmoniously hum alongside the organ. A wanderer now turned musician, Luminosa was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
With the talent she undeniably possessed, at the age of 11, Luminosa formally started her training. As a student in musical theater, she learned contemporary voice techniques. Shortly after, she studied classical voice performances at The Pennsylvania State University. There she graduated with a degree in English and a minor in vocal performance. Now, with the passion-filled ground she holds, the young artist has performed all around New York City and Pittsburgh. She finds happiness and growth as she performs in local venues.
Luminosa sets herself apart from the others with her performance abilities. Hers is a desire that can put the audience in her shoes and experiences. She did this as she went around the industry to craft her talent, creating the person she is now. Thus, she chose the name Luminosa, illuminating the power of music and her capacity to be a bright light.
As her name suggests, she brings brilliance into everything she does. With her melodies, she brightens up a room with an attitude. With purple hair and her ability to create something worthwhile—even adding humor to herself—Luminosa gives people a sense of tranquility. Additionally, the artist is eminently body positive. She takes finesse in encouraging all souls to embrace their exceptional traits, the ones that make each person unique.
In a world that can be unkind at times, Luminosa finds the need to be honest. And above all the troubling times, she sees hope in positivity. As a passion-driven musician, Luminosa sometimes finds it difficult to word her thoughts seamlessly with overflowing ideas and emotions. Nevertheless, she continues to give her best, as her songwriting is a reflection of who she is.
Luminosa continues to chase her dreams, believing that “there’s this thought that people need me. They need my music, and my presence, because it will bring some peace. I’ve been through the dark places, the scary places, and I still chose to be a bright light. That’s not something to take lightly,” she adds.
Her purposeful vision leads her to hope in seeing her music everywhere, as a result of not just the passion she has but also her hard work. The musician declares, “I won’t stop until I reach my goals. I’ll keep failing, and learning, and trying until I’ve made this world a better place.”
