Grammy-Award Winning Singer, Mya, Scheduled to Perform Her Greatest Hits Live
Mya an American Grammy-Award winning singer, actress and dancer. She is named after acclaimed poet Maya Angelou. Mya had been interested in singing and dancing as a child and began taking jazz, ballet and tap-dancing classes from a very early age. During her teenage, her primary interest was in dancing, and she joined a dance troupe called Tappers with Attitude in 1992 at the age of 13.
Mya’s father landed her a deal with Interscope Records and spent two years recording her debut album, “Mya”. The album featured collaborations with big industry names such as Missy Elliott, Dru Hill, Babyface, and was a huge hit with tracks like “It’s All About Me”, “Movin’ On”, and “My First Night with You”. It was eventually certified platinum and peaked at No. 29 on the Billboard 200.
Her second album, titled “Fear of Flying”, was released in April 2000. It was also successful, and featured the hit song “Case of the Ex”. This won Mya a Soul Train Music Award nomination for R&B/Soul Album – Female and a UK MOBO nomination for Best Album, selling over 1 million copies in the U.S. and certified platinum by the RIAA.
