Bio:
If Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga and Madonna ever had a crazy one night stand, the lovechild of that musical affair could only be described as.. Mina Koo.

She’s headlined famous LA venues such as The Mint, House of Blues, and Whisky a Go-Go as well as heating up the dance floors with her debut album “Mina.” Known for her dynamic choreography and commanding stage presence, a live performance from Mina is not one you will soon forget..

While still a child, Mina won several talent contests, as well as having her songs featured on nationally syndicated TV channel KBS. Her love for music continued to develop, and soon she began playing piano and guitar, as well as performing with a diverse group of multicultural musicians.

Since relocating from Seoul to Hollywood, Mina Koo has been busy tearing up stages across the country, from the busy streets of New York City to her current home in Hollywood, California. Shortly after the release of “Mina” the track “More Than a Crush" received placement in indie film "Lady Beard," as well as on MTV reality show "Challenge: Battle of the Exes”. Another track "Jini" was featured in the popular E! network's TV Show "Keeping Up with the Kardashians." Most recently, Mina's club anthem "Troubadours (Dance Floors)" was selected as a Finalist in the 2012 John Lennon Songwriting Contest!

With the warm reception of her debut underway, Mina plans to continue collaborating, writing, recording and touring worldwide; unleashing her unique blend of world music and high-energy club anthems as the soundtrack for the next generation of pop fans worldwide.
