Washington, D.C., is home to nearly 200 Embassies, many of which, in addition to being the residences of consuls and diplomats from around the world, are also increasingly bringing their homegrown talent to America’s capital.

As part of her current U.S. tour, British chanteuse Izzy Bizu will perform at the Embassy of the United Kingdom, Washington, D.C, Nov. 17, bringing her jazzy sound to the District’s Embassy Row — and a “home” audience over 3,000 miles away from Britannia.

“It feels I’m arriving at an incredibly important time in U.S. history, so [I’m] especially excited to be going to the heart of it all,” Miss Bizu said in a statement provided to The Washington Times.

Miss Bizu has drawn comparisons to the late Amy Winehouse, a fellow Englishwoman, as well as Diana Ross and Sam Cook. Critics have also taken notice, as she was a finalist for this year’s Brits Critics Choice awards. Her debut album, “A Moment of Madness,” has also drawn much praise.

“I can’t wait to see the White House,” Miss Bizu said, adding she is “super excited to show America our music.”
