Biography

RAYANDRA

At just 15 years old, this gifted and talented vocalist has an extensive octave range and has been compared with some of music’s greats like Aretha Franklin and Jennifer Hudson.

Rayandra’s musical debut was at an impromptu concert at her local church when she was just 8 years old. Her jaw dropping rendition of the Winans’ Tomorrow, garnered her standing ovation from the congregation. After performing at many local concerts, weddings and other public events, people started hearing the name Rayandra more and more. But it was her audition for YTV’s national talent search, The Next Star that quickly made Rayandra a household name across Canada. Among the thousands of kids that audition, she was chosen as one of the top 6 finalists for TV show. As a contestant she was mentored for 12 weeks by industry professionals - veteran Songwriter Christopher Ward, Music Marketing Executive Steve Cranwell, musicians Suzy McNeil and Kate Voegele to name a few.

She has shared the stage with many well-known artists, including Justin Bieber, FeFe Dobson and Shiloh. Rayandra's first single, What We Need Is Love was recorded at Canada's premier recording studio Metalworks and was released under the Universal Records label. She has performed all over Canada and the Caribbean. Most recently, singing the national anthem at the Rogers Centre at a Toronto Blue Jays game and performed on the Rogers Television shows, Toronto Talent and Daytime.

The buzz about Rayandra has also spanned south of the border. She has been chosen as the only Canadian artist for the Kids Saving Kids compilation CD. This is an initiative under the U.S based organization, Stop Drunk Driving Now. Thousands of young musicians from every State in America submitted their music in hopes of being selected for one of the coveted spots on the Kids Saving Kids CD.

Although singing is her passion, Rayandra is active in all areas of the Arts - she sings, dance, acts, plays the drums and saxophone. Her love for singing is evident in her passionate and captivating performances. Her brand new single, I’m RayRay (The T-Dot Song) will be available on iTunes and other online music stores later this summer.
