Indigo Skyz, named after that deep purplish blue color representative of heaven’s royalty, is a Principle member of Society Entertainment. She is a performing artist whose distinctive vocals are essential to the Society sound.
Indigo Skyz, born April Thompson, was born on April 6, 1976, in Goldsboro, NC.
Her earliest memories were of her mother, Annie, playing music in the morning when she woke up; “this was my favorite time of the day”. Indigo Skyz hails from a singing family and many of her childhood memories are filled with family events where she was paid to sing. She performed her first solo at age four and remembers making up the words as she went along. Her earliest influences were Michael Jackson, Smoky Robinson and Whitney Houston.
When citing her image icon or influences, Indigo Skyz says her look is her own; it’s ever-evolving, moving with her from where she is to where she’s going. Currently, her style is a classic look with an ultra-feminine style that blends an edgy almost retro feel. She’s a street smart and articulate female with a passion to help single mothers and young children. ”I’ve been there, I’ve done this, I know the ins-and-outs of this life process.” Indigo Skyz admits that she’s had some very hard days but her faith and the gift to sing and bring hope and healing to others, even in the midst of her own pain, has helped her to successfully make it through. She now believes she was given a gift to sing to bring hope to others. She says, “My singing gives people hope, they get a certain feeling when I sing; they believe when I sing, they remember goodness and love, when I sing.”
Indizo Skyz credits God for bringing her to the realization that she has purpose in this life. She also credits Him for bringing the very people that could help her to put together the pieces of a complex and broken life and set her on the path to discovery. The Life Institute for Expressive Arts and Society Entertainment are instrumental in her current success.
Not only is Indigo Skyz a performing artist, but she is a speaker, producer and web-hostess. When she is before people, Indigo Skyz is the real deal. She is a former depressed teenage mother who didn’t have the will to live; however she has continued to overcome tremendous odds to be one of the strongest women in her community. Indigo is a leader-builder in her own family and a true sister to other women. Indigo realizes that there are other young girls and women who are where she used to be and with great compassion, she works hard to transfer strength and hope to them. People are inspired and receive joy when they experience Indigo Skyz in any of her many capacities.
Indigo Skyz loves to have fun and to laugh, relax and be around fun loving people. She is looking forward to her debut Album entitled “Blue Diamond” and her two Christmas singles “I Know What You Want for Christmas”, and “Love on Christmas Night” due to be released digitally in late 2012.
Indigo Skyz is poised to take the industry by storm with her soulful voice, aching melodies and lyrical command. We haven’t seen it before and don’t know when we’ll see it again- Out of the blue, Indigo Skyz, taking it beyond the limit!
