Amira has the look, the sound, and the smarts to make it in the music industry. Self-taught, Amira strikes listeners with her young look, powerful voice, and confidence. As a performer with unlimited potential, she has the look of Aaliyah and the musical style of Jojo.
Born in Clinton, Maryland and the only child, Amira knew that she wanted to sing. “It took my mom coming into the house to hear me singing in the shower in order for her to take me seriously. It was at that moment that my parents realized that I had the talent and ability to sing professionally,” states Amira. “My first love is music and I know that it’s the one thing that I want to spend my life doing, so why not make a living out of doing something that I, both, love and enjoy?” Some of Amira’s influences include Beyonce, Jojo, Whitney Houston, Patti Labelle, and Taylor Swift.
At the age of 13, Amira recorded her first song with producer, Jerome ‘Rome’ Jefferson. Since then Amira has been in a few talent shows. One, in particular, she entered into her high school talent show and took home 3rd place.
She is currently in the studio writing and recording her first EP with producer, Kevin Jackson, Jr., that she will be releasing soon. Amira states, “I am definitely ready to take the next step in my musical career!”
In May 2012, Amira graduated from a local community college with an associate’s degree. She is currently attending Morgan State University in hopes of obtaining a Bachelor’s degree in Print Journalism, while she, simultaneously, continues to work on her music career.
