She released "Heal A Heart" in May 2020, a song co-written with Zaheed Dhamani, dedicated to volunteers, social workers, and healthcare workers assisting with the Covid-19 pandemic. The song debuted on the global the.ismaili and ismailitv platforms, reaching over 24K views. cimone's smooth sound also led her to perform for Yvette Noel-Shure, former publicist for Prince, John Legend, and Beyoncé, in Valencia, Spain for the Women In Music Spring Mixer.
