Indianapolis Native Marrialle Sellars performs in-studio ahead of Art & Soul

What a soulful, powerful voice!

Did you hear? This year’s online edition of “Art & Soul” features a connection to “American Idol.” Indianapolis native Marrialle Sellars, a Top 30 “American Idol” competitor in 2014, will make her Art & Soul debut seven years after a successful audition for “Idol” panelists Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. Then a 17-year-old Lawrence Central High School student, Sellars sang Bruno Mars’ “Grenade” on the televised talent search.

And now, she’s in our studio singing for us today! Take a listen.

Art & Soul fans will be able to watch great performances by 15 acts, from emerging musicians to legendary bands, plus hear a conversation with this year’s visual artist, Matthew Cooper. Matthew created the backdrop for this year’s performances. It’s a collage of the pieces he painted this summer on the boarded-up windows of Old City Hall as part of the Murals for Racial Justice initiative. Matthew also created two original works that viewers can see through the large exterior windows of Gallery 924 at the Arts Council.

Along with the 16 Art & Soul shows, we’ll be presenting special content including a guide to the best Black History Month arts & culture events at

We worked with Indy Jazz Fest and Asante Art Institute of Indianapolis to program this year’s festival. We shot all the performances over three days in January at the Indianapolis Artsgarden. Everyone wore masks except the singers!­­
