Biography

Born on November 30, 1976 and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, to parents Rundle Sr. (deceased) and Cassandra Brockman, Anitra Brockman aka "Ni Ni" realized she wanted to sing at the young age of 5 when she was standing in the mirror everyday singing with her hairbrush as a microphone. She grew up in the baptist church, and was very active in the youth choir and young adult choir.

Being a single mother of 3 proved to be very challenging for Anitra, but with her strong faith in God, she was able to persevere and completed a MBA in Business Administration, and has plans to complete a Doctoral degree in Education.

God has worked some wonders in Anitra’s life, and she is so grateful everyday for the vocal gift God has given her to share with others. She sings not to impress anyone, but her Savior and Lord, and will continue to spread His word through song. Her stage name is "Ni Ni" which means "favored grace" in Hebrew.

Anitra Brockman is currently working on her debut gospel album project entitled “Brand New Me”. The album is set to release on 11-30-10 and the single "Tears Are Dry" is set to release on 11-2-10.

Anitra Brockman is inspired by many Contemporary Christian and Gospel artists such as Cincinnati’s own Nicole C. Mullen, CeCe Winans, Kirk Franklin, Crystal Lewis, Martha Munizzi and too many more to name.

In her spare time, Anitra enjoys spending time with her 3 children (Janele, Janae, Jordan), friends and family.

Lyrics

Tears Are Dry

Written By: Anitra "Ni Ni" Brockman

VERSE 1:
WHEN I THINK OF ALL YOU HAVE DONE
LORD I KNOW YOU'RE THE ONLY ONE
WHEN I FEEL LIKE I'M GONNA CRY
YOU ARE ALWAYS THERE RIGHT BY MY SIDE
I NEED YOU IN MY LIFE
YOU HELP ME TO MAKE IT THROUGH
ALL MY UPS AND DOWNS
YOU TURNED ME AROUND

CHORUS:
MY TEARS ARE DRY
BECAUSE OF YOU LORD
I WON'T CRY
YOU SAVED MY LIFE
CAME AND RESCUED ME
NOW MY TEARS ARE DRY

VERSE 2:
I BEGIN TO REALIZE
JUST HOW MUCH YOU MEAN TO ME
LORD YOU'RE SUCH A MYSTERY
HOW YOU MAKE ME FEEL
LORD THIS IS SO REAL
I NEED YOU
YES I DO

(CHORUS)

BRIDGE:
YOU STOPPED THE RAIN
YOU EASED THE PAIN
MY BURDENS GONE
THE CLOUDS MOVED ON
NOW ALL MY TEARS ARE DRY
ALL MY TEARS ARE DRY

(CHORUS)
