Nya is a 27-year-old female R&B/Hip Hop artist from Elkhart/South Bend, IN. She started out singing when she was a toddler and has been on stage and in competitions since she was about 8 years old. It all started when she sang in church,in the school choir,school and church regional competitions,and also sang the Star-Spangled Banner at The Coveleski Stadium when she was 16 years old. She won many first place awards in competitions during her elementary years all the way to her high school years. In late high school, she lived in the Dominican Republic for a year and a half for school and continued to write and work on her music.After high school, she took a break from singing for a couple years to go to college, then jumped back into singing again when she was about 25 years old. This is when "Nya" (Not Your Average) came about. She had finally figured out her style and direction she wanted to go in her aspiring music career. Since, she has opened up for Shawnna, performed at MANY venues locally and some out of state as well. She is also currantly a promoter at a local venue which she also performs at regularly. Then, in March 2012, her first copyrighted single was released for her album "To Whom It May Concern" and was put into rotation on the local radio station (WSMK 99.1) on a regular basis. A great opportunity fell into her lap in September 2012 when WSMK 99.1 invited her to perform for their Listener's Appreciation Party at The Century Center in downtown South Bend.
