Malynda Hale: Audience Connection, Veganism & Gavin DeGraw

This week, we’re excited to welcome Los Angeles based musician, actor and model, Malynda Hale to the show. Malynda is a multi-talented performer, classically trained in both vocal performance and musical theatre. In her music career, Malynda has won many independent awards and has released 3 studio EPs to date. As an actor, she can be seen in several major and independent film projects, including The 4th Meeting, and Oranges, and is also working on a new TV series, Agent X. Malynda co-hosts The Vampire Diaries After Show on The Stream.tv and serves as the main host for The Walking Dead After Show. She is a spokesperson for vegan makeup company Valana Minerals and is the founder of The meTOO! Campaign, which promotes equality for marginalized couples. Her new EP Pieces Of Me is due for release in late October, 2015.
