Diana Mera is a singer, songwriter and actress who was born in the city of Quito, Ecuador and raised in Lima, Peru.
She has lived in México, Venezuela, Switzerland and currently resides in the U.S.
Mera began her musical career on the internationally prestigious TV shows Despierta América (Univisión) and De Mañanita (Telemundo) and will soon release her second studio album Luz Verde (Green Light).
As an actress she won great acclaim for her part in Eve Ensler’s, The Vagina Monologues, and, in 2010, Diana was recipient of outstanding praise from publications including the Los Angeles Times Magazine, StageSceneLA and Therevada for her role in Making Paradise: The West Hollywood Musical.
Diana Mera’s voice is soulful, rich and emotive and to define her style as simply Spanish Pop does her a disservice. The narrow view of this genre, however incorrect, may limit her audience and this would be a tragedy.
Mera communicates all manner of subject matter through her songs and her passion for social equality is a resounding theme. Her song “Sobreviviente” captured audiences and critics alike when first performed in the play called “Ojala” (God Willing).
Mera is, indeed, a survivor who shares her humanity through her work and through her equality advocacy. She will soon join NBI Associates in their, “Give ‘em Hope” youtube video campaign – an initiative designed to empower those most vulnerable members of our diverse LGBT community.
DIANA MERA MENTIONS MY CAMPAIGN IN REVISTA
Totalmente, he apoyado a Bienestar y ellos a mí, The
City of West Hollywood cuando participe en el musical,
etc. En el 2011 pienso hacer más e involucrarme
muchísimo para ayudar a la juventud que necesita
ejemplo para tener valor y hacer una vida plena sin
miedos. Estoy en conversaciones con amigos de
organizaciones LGTB para comenzar proyectos de
concientización como “Never Blend In Video Initiative”,
próximamente estaré grabando un video para ellos y asi
unirme a mi gente.
Is the LGBT community important for you? Do you help out?
Absolutely, I’ve supported Bienestar and they have done the same for me. The City of West Hollywood when I did the Musical, etc. In 2011 I plan to involve myself a lot to help the youth that needs an example to have courage and live a full life without fear. I’m having conversations with LGBT organizations to start awareness projects like “Never Blend In Video Initiative”; I will be shooting a video for them to help my people.
