At the age of three Aria sang “I will Always Love You” by the wonderful Whitney Houston to her father on his birthday. She knew from then on that she was destined to be a singer. She later joined her church choir and it was there that she gained the confidence to pursue music as a career. Aria enjoys music of all genres’, from Hip-Hop and Pop to Rhythm & Blue, and she prides herself on her vocal versatility. She draws inspiration from many other powerful female artists such as Lauryn Hill, Mariah Carey, Beyoncé, and Rihanna.
Today, at the age of 26, Aria is ready to take her music to the next level. Her focus is on putting out a project for the whole world to hear. With the recent release of “I’m Only Human’ she believes that she has done just that. To Aria it is about making people feel your passion through your music and giving them a peek into your heart, mind, and soul.
