I am a true performer. I am all about having fun on stage and giving 110%, vocally and physically. Because dancing is another passion of mine (a former NBA dancer), I love also using choreography to express the songs I sing. It sets me a part from other artists.

Biography

Originally from Houston, Texas, Chayla has graced many stages with her talents in music as a singer-songwriter and trained dancer. Starting at age four, Chayla began studying dance, mastering several different types which led to her own unique style. While attending a performance arts school, she used her acquired skills in dance and natural vocal ability to perform in local productions such as musical plays, national competitions, and pageants. At age 14, she made her first attempt as a recording artist in an all girl group, alongside her older sister and family friend. The trio was guided by former Rap-A-Lot producer, Lakewood, who taught the group fundamentals of performance and vocal training.

Just before graduating cum laude from Westside High School, Chayla was hired to dance for the WNBA Houston Comets for the 2006 season. While dancing for the Houston Comets, she also took part in other productions including a showcase produced by Herman, choreographer of recording artist Frankie J, and featured in music videos for upcoming recording artists. After two seasons with the Houston Comets, she went on to become a Houston Rockets Power Dancer. Making the prestigious dance team three years consecutively, she contributed choreography and performed at NBA home games and private appearances throughout the city of Houston.

In 2009, Chayla returned to the music, writing and choreographing R&B/ Pop tracks including her single, “Let Me See It,” which was featured on HOT TV five weeks in a row. She opened for platinum recording artist, Lil Flip, at a HOT TV concert event in January 2011, performing her hit single, “That’s My Baby.” Other singles released by Chayla and aired on live radio such as the Chris Black Show include the smooth and airy, “So New,” and an uptempo dance track, “Play Again.” In November 2011, Chayla was featured in the SWAGG Tour Houston stop which also featured G-Unit’s 40 Glocc. In 2012, her dance smash “Beat Monster” was featured in Kontrol Magazine’s photoshoot video with “Girlfriends” and “Are We There Yet” star actress Keesha Sharp.

Chayla is musically influenced by Michael and Janet Jackson, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Brandy, and childhood friend’s older sister, Beyonce. Observing her hometown’s Destiny Child grow into a world-wide success was also an inspiration.

Chayla believes that life is what you make it, and that God can change your life when you change your thinking. “I want people to hear my music and dance again... REALLY dance!,” states Chayla. “I remember back when my friends and I would learn choreography from music videos. That's what I'd love to see people doing now!,” she adds. Chayla currently records at Barron's Studios in Houston, Tx. with mastering produced by Sterling Sound of New York City.

"In Another Life"

Written By: C. Williams and Vincent Williams


Feels like the sand is sinking

Right under my feet

When I see that look

You only give to me

Oh oh oh oh oh oh I-I

I wish it was the right time

Oh oh oh oh oh oh I-I

I wish you were with me tonight

In another life

I would be with you, with you

In another life

The crazy things we could do

In another life

I would be with you, with you

In another life

The things we would do

You, you got somebody

Yea yea yea yea yea yea

I-I got somebody

Yea yea yea yea yea yea

In another life

I would be with you, with you

In another life

The crazy things we could do

Feels like the stars are shining

Shining right on me

Can’t see past you

Can’t run from these feelings

Oh oh oh oh oh oh I-I

I wish it was the right time

Oh oh oh oh oh oh I-I

I wish you were with me tonight

In another life

I would be with you, with you

In another life

The crazy things we could do

In another life

I would be with you, with you

In another life

The things we would do

But you got, you got somebody

yea yea yea yea

But I, I got somebody

yea yea

In another life

I would be with you

In another life

The things that we would do

"Best Night Ever"

Written By: C. Williams and Vincent Williams

Don’t look back

It’s too late now

Stereo’s got my heart beating loud

It’s our time now

Can you feel it?

Feel it right now

Don’t look back

It’s too late now

Stereo’s got my heart beating loud

It’s our time now

Can you feel it?

Feel it right now

HOOK:

This could be the best night ever

Come with me

Leave all your worries

Live for this one night baby

I swear that tonight

It could be

Forget what’s on your plate

Let’s hit escape and come with me baby

This could be the best night of your life

Let go with me tonight

V1:

Life ain’t always a sweet dream

Sometimes the storm comes in and shakes things

But when we’re together

perfect weather

We both got our problems

Let’s resolve them with a good time

It’s okay to put your hand in mine

Look deep into my eyes

You can do it all night

HOOK

V2:

It’s easy to get caught up

Lose sleep, don’t eat

Life can do that to ya

I’m stress-free when you’re with me

Can we run far away

And get lost in the music

We both got our problems

Let’s resolve them with some passion

Moments like this don’t come twice

We’ve got to breathe it in right now

HOOK

This could be the best night ever, ever

This could be forever and ever

Don’t look back

It’s too late now

Stereo’s got our hearts beating so loud

It’s our time now

So come with me

We’ll leave it all behind

"Beat Monster"

Written By: C. Williams

The sky is getting dark

Full moon's coming out

Been in for way too long

Time to go too far

Take me to a place

Where I can get loud and

Break free out this cage

Everybody better watch out

I'm taking no prisoners

I’m gonna kill that beat

Blast it through the ceiling

HOOK:

Beat monster

Can u give it all to me?

Give me all of ur energy

Beat monster

You know just what I need

Can you give me that music please?

Lights flashing like it's my show

No sense of control

It's hot in here

We bring the heat

Sweat drippin'

Go baby go

All I see are eyes on me

Take it to a new level

Tonight I'll be with my people

Shakin' up the floor

HOOK (2X)

Bass up ….til the...

sun's up... til I get enough

speakers... give me...

more of... that drum

It's in me now

Gotta let it out

It's in me now

Counting down

HOOK (2X)

Beat monster,

Come out

Beat monster,

Come on out
