Bronx, New York, the original home of hip hop has given birth to this 20th Century’s Hip-Hop Soul phenomenon. She is one of a kind. She is in a class all by herself. One part singer, one part writer and all parts humble…She is The Silent Celeb. This R&B female artist sings with an old school soul but can fall in line equally with the greatest of MCs, both female and male. Knowing that she is not the norm in this industry serves her well, as it motivates her to bring it every time…and that she does. Her music is a soulful and sexy fusion of Jazz, R&B and Hip-Hop all in one. She caresses the microphone like she was born with it in her hands. The Silent Celeb has solidified her spot as one of the best R&B artist to emerge in her time. Compelled by the likes of Missy Elliott, Mary J. Blige, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott and Marsha Ambrosia, her voice and lyrical genius carry a truth and a confidence that lulls you in and keeps you coming back for more but it is her very own life experiences growing up in the Gun Hill section of the Bronx that allows her to demolish any beat she encounters, singing from her soul and breathing life into a track.
As a singer and performer since the age of four, she’s been perfecting her style and skills for years and her timing could not be better. Being released in a time where the industry and society have become more open and accepting of alternative lifestyle and music. Her music remains timeless and universal. “I write for the masses, I have something for everyone.” Good music is good music and The Silent Celebs' music is not only good, it transcends boundaries…be it age, gender or genre.
Silent Celeb has been labeled as the “Next Up” in her generation. With accomplishments such as winning Grand prize at SOBs for the longest running showcase in NYC “Faces in the Crowd” competition as well as winning the biggest indie showcase grand prize in NYC with They Got Skills and Empire State of Grind Ent for $5000.00 cash deeming her “The 5k Kid” not to mention show stealing performance for The Brooklyn Music Festival and most recently she won the 2014 Xtreme 104FM All-Star Music Award Female RnB Artist Performer of the Year. With the accolades piling up this artist is surely on her way to greatness. The Silent Celeb has worked with an assortment of noteworthy artists and producers in the underground industry as well as the main stream. Her consistency and dedication has gained her the respect and acknowledgement of any artist she encounters. In 2010 she was nominated for Best Singer/Solo Artist by Urban Lyfe Awards going against Monifah and again in 2011 when she was chosen as a finalist for the Essence Magazine Star Search she knew this was what she was destined to do.
