Bio

From an early age, Nikiya was exposed to the beauty and power of music. As far as she can remember, she has been influenced by the arts. At the tender age of three, Nikiya was enrolled in dance school where she studied tap, ballet and jazz. At five, her mother surprised her with a piano and began teaching her how to play. After a year, Nikiya trained in classical music. As her passion and skills developed, she started performing and realized she was privileged to be given the opportunity to share her God given talents with others. While attending LaGuardia H.S. of Performing Arts, Nikiya joined the All City Choir and performed throughout the Tri-State area. Also, Nikiya worked with Amas Musical Theatre which is founded by the late Rosetta Lenoir from the T.V. show Family Matters. During her teenage years, Nikiya went through very trying times and remembers when the piano, notebook and pen where her only friends. Music became Nikiya's outlet and helped her heal her wounds. Now, her mission is to help others by sharing her experiences and providing encouragement and hope. Her message is about overcoming fear, doubt, self-esteem issues and despair. Through faith, self- evaluation, respect, perseverance and love, Nikiya underwent a drastic change for the better and expresses the process in her music. By incorporating different genres into her music, Nikiya is able to cater to a large audience. For Nikiya, its all about the message. Whether its a commercial sound, hip-hop, r&b, pop or soul, Nikiya's goal is to allow people to feel and hope through a positive outlet. "If nothing else, I want people to know there is always light at the end of the tunnel. Now I feel like a free bird with renewed strength. By making a difference in someones life, I can peacefully say I have no regrets because my pain was not in vain."
