Tamia headed to SA!

She will be doing what is called “her 3 city tour” in April 2014.

The Canadian born, began singing at the tender age, having learnt from the city’s rich musical history through its deep gospel tradition and booming Motown sound.

“I feel a connection to all types of music,” Tamia says from her home in Florida.

“From soul to country to gospel, as long as the song has a good story, I’m hooked.”

Citing Phyllis Hyman and Chaka Khan as influences, Tamia strives to bring freshness to the soul arena.

With the release of her fifth studio album ‘Beautiful Surprise’, the singer aurally explores various genres of music, blending her special passion with each style and making them her own.

Having recruited two-time Grammy nominated songwriter/producer Claude Kelly (Bruno Mars’ “Grenade” and Kelly Clarkson’s “My Life Would Suck without You”) as her co-executive producer on ‘Beautiful Surprise’, the two worked hard to create a project that is as diverse as it is soulful.

From her brilliant debut single “You Put a Move on My Heart,” produced by Quincy Jones in 1994, to her more recent song cycle, Tamia possesses both a hypnotic charm and timeless voice.

In her accomplished career, Tamia has collaborated with a diverse roster of artists including Babyface, Barry White, Missy Elliott, Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, Gladys Knight, Eric Benet and Gerald Levert.

In 2003, she recorded the #4 Billboard Hot 100 Chart hit “Into You” with rapper Fabolous.
