Leila Milki is an award-winning Lebanese-American singer, songwriter, and classical-pop pianist based in Los Angeles. Most recently recognized as one of Arab America’s “30 Under 30” honorees, she strives to translate her artistry into a healing platform for emotional and multicultural empowerment, while elevating visibility for fellow first-generation daughters of the Arab diaspora. Her Arabic/English fusion work has earned her a Grand Prize and Lennon Award in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest (with her homeland tribute “Leil Ya Leil”), along with a feature in Disney’s Emmy-nominated series “The Rocketeer” (with her song “Enjoy Your Meal,” a festive tribute to Lebanese cuisine and Arab women across generations).
