Andra Day @ the Fillmore

(Myriam Santos)

In the two years since Andra Day released her debut album, Cheers to the Fall, the throaty-voiced 31-year-old singer has been hardly out of the spotlight. Her hit single “Rise Up” has been featured in commercials, and earlier this year, her image was printed on more than 50 million McDonald’s cups. Not to mention, she’s performed at the BET Awards, the closing ceremonies of the Special Olympics, and even at the White House. With her heartfelt lyrics and her soul, pop, and R&B sensibilities, Day has garnered many comparisons to the late Amy Winehouse, which is never a bad thing. And the fact that Day also likes retro fashions and wing-tipped eyeliner doesn’t hurt, either.

Andra Day with Chloe x Halle, at 8 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 6 at the Fillmore. $32.50;
