Biography

Selena was born in Memphis, Tennessee in 1980 but moved to Orlando, Florida in 1982 where she currently resides. The daughter of Jamaican nurse and former actor/singer, this charismatic singer began her musical journey as a piano student at age 7 but got her calling to sing in high school. Under the direction of her choir teacher Gayle Jones Murphy, Selena was inspired to experiment and expand her vocal abilities. It wasn’t until her junior year that she had the desire to make it as a singer/songwriter/musician. But her dreams would go on hold until she would complete college and graduate from Southwestern Adventist University with a degree in Business Marketing/e-Commerce. All the while, college gave Selena the chance to explore herself and emerge as the songstress she is today.

Through her college experience she was able to cultivate her writing abilities and produced some of her best material. “No More” is one of these songs in which she pours out her angst to find peace of mind and be spiritually elevated. Since graduating from college she has rubbed shoulders with world-class musicians as well as producers and agents from major labels such as, Warner Bros., Atlantic Records, and RCA. She has chosen to be an independent artist and is making waves on the underground music trails.

Lyrics

Green

Written By: Selena Seballo

(verse)
Folk want what they don't have
Others have but still seem sad
I know its no new fad
Folk add where they could subtract

do do do do do do do (skat)

(chorus)
Don't know if I'll be satisfied
Grass is greener on the otherside
Things are better in the Jones' life
Seeing clearer while going blind

(verse2)
We teach our young that to succeed
Is living the american dream
Everyone's reaching for the stars
They look back
They've gone too far

(chorus)
(bridge)
What is this obsession
With having more than we need
Why does this illusion
Motivate our greed
(skat)
why why why why
(chorus)

Cynics

Written By: Selena Seballo

They torched the sky
Where will my dreams fly
They drowned the sea
Where will my rivers flee
Can someone tell me
Why we are whispering
Their words are bland
Why are we listening

(chorus)
Let's make it clear
They are not welcomed here oh
No....no
They'll disappear
When they see they're not welcomed
here

(verse 2)
They threw the first stone
My finger stands alone
Took the path less chosen
They cut my insides open
Can someone tell me oh
Why we are whispering
Their words are bland
Why are we listening

(chorus)
(Bridge)
I kept their company
Til' my epiphony
The time will come
When they'll be undone
oh...

(chorus)
