Eleven year-old Timyra-Joi delivers self penned songs with soul and maturity far beyond her years. She is not another tween sensation but is destined for a long inspirational career. The lyrics of her songs prove that she is keenley aware of the world and hopes to make a difference in it.


Ten year-old Timyra-Joi has a motto. "Always believe in yourself and follow your dreams". It was this motto she brought to the songwriting sessions with Ken and Becky Rash of Active Audio & Entertainment that inspired the powerful, uplifting and soulful song "What Kind of World". Using this song as a vehicle, Timyra-Joi is fulfilling her dream of spreading a message of hope and love to the world.

Timyra-Joi was 5 when her parents recognized her talent, although she had been singing since she was a baby. Her influences include Christina Aguilera, Yolanda Adams and Patti LaBelle. Timra-Joi's parents sought out opportunities for her to develop and share her talent. They brought her to Leigh Scarritt Productions and distinguished dance troupe Culture Shock where she strengthened her vocal technique, dance, acting and performance skills.

Since then she's had roles in movies and TV commercials, including a voice over role in Universal Pictures "Curious George". She has acted in local theatre, most notably as Dorothy in "The Wiz" at the Lyceum Theater and as Cindy-Lou Who in "The Grinch" at the Old Globe Theatre, both in San Diego. She has danced in many locations in San Diego, including Sea World.

She performed the National Anthem at a Padres Game, National School Board Association event, at Angels Stadium, and a San Diego Police Officers Association event to name a few. In 2008, Timyra-Joi was featured as one of Americas Most Talented Kids on the Maury Povich Show.

Her most cherished vocal performance was singing at the Tariq Khamisa Foundation for the presentation of the Ghandi Peace Award, which is dedicated to breaking the epidemic of youth violence. "It showed how two people, who could have been enemies because one of their grandsons killed the other's son and they forgave each other and became best friends" says Timyra.

Timyra has many talents that make her special, but are not well known. One most are not aware of is she speaks fluent German. Another, she is passionate about helping endangered, abandoned and abused animals. As a matter of fact, Timyra's biggest personal goal in life is to be "The Voice" for such animals.

What Kind of World

Written By: Timyra-Joi and Becky Rash

What Kind of World
„¦2007 written by Timyra-Joi Beatty and Becky Rash
Sometimes our dreams can seem to high to reach like the farthest star
And we try and we try to get there but it seems to hard

Sometimes we¡¦re face to face with an open door we won¡¦t walk inside
¡¥Cause we¡¦re too afraid to find out what¡¦s on the other side

What kind of World would it be if we would only believe in ourselves?
If we would follow our dreams I know that only time will tell
What kind of World would it be if we would just believe?

Night after night we get down on our knees and pray to God above
For the strength to live a better life and someone to love

Repeat Chorus

Nobody else can tell you who you are
Or what you should be
Listen to the voice that¡¦s in your heart
And then set it free, set it free

Repeat Chorus
