Representing Washington DC is Vatsana “Paradise” Luangrath, a singer hailing from Reston, Virginia. Paradise wowed the crowds at Kollaboration DC 5 with his emotional interpretation of Tupac Shakur’s “Pain,” using a combination of his smooth vocals and touching lyrics to bring home the title and the opportunity to represent the DMV at Kollaboration Star.
