Her group created more dance routines to the music of these artist.
***Rapper / Songwriter
Niya’s Music career began at the age of 12, when she wrote her 1st rap “I Am Fresh” and presented it to her mother. It was then her mother took notice that Niya was not only a great dancer but also a songwriter in the making. The combination of music and her mother’s discipline of making her read books beyond her grade level helped her to not only keep good grades, but to also shape her into a young artist of strong melodic and lyrical footing. Her 2nd rap “Rockin with the Best” is becoming a favorite of her new fans. She now shares her talents with the world through her music and dance routines on her social websites, shows, festivals, and events around the city. We look forward to the success and growth of Niya803, the young MC representing 803…
