Biography

Not afraid to experiment and not shackled by what is considered mainstream, Artist/Producer/Writer/Arranger/Singer/Executive, SHADIYA, brings to the stage sultry, smooth jazz sounds and collectively represents every music style imaginable.

Shadiya’s music career began while singing in the church choir when the music director discovered her talent. Wanting to see that talent blossom, the director took Shadiya under her wing and paid for her vocal and piano lessons. “I didn’t even know I could sing until Mrs. Carr told me.” From then on, with her mother and god mother as her managers, Shadiya was auditioning and singing for benefits such as the American Cancer Society, March of Dimes, Dogwood Arts Festival, Dollywood (formally known as Silver Dollar City) and political and church groups.

At age 13, she was challenged to audition for the Miss Tennessee Talented Teen contest. Winning the contest with her rendition of “Summertime” from Porgy and Bess, she went on to represent her state in the Hal Jackson’s International Talented Teens Pageant held at the Coconut Grove in Hollywood, California. This one experience was a turning point in Shadiya’s life. It opened many doors to building her self-esteem, to offering opportunities to interact and perform with some of the hottest stars such as Janet Jackson, Johnny Gill, Jeffrey Osbourne, Ready for the World, Bobby Brown, and DeBarge.
