Nya was raised on a diverse musical diet of many of the world’s greatest vocal stars, which is reflected in her many shows in the UK, Europe and Africa. However, without a shadow of a doubt the incomparable and unrivalled God-given voice of Whitney Elizabeth Houston has been Nya’s biggest influence and inspiration from childhood.
Nya has been privileged to perform live shows with Heatwave and Precious Wilson, recorded backing vocals for Odyssey, and is a regular artist at Butlins, Warner Resort Hotels, G-Casinos and Park Resorts, to name a few.
You’ll hear a great many of Whitney hit songs throughout Nya’s show, which have always been well received. In homage to the great diva, Nya has put together a show of the best Whitney hits, including I Wanna Dance With Somebody, I Will Always Love You, Greatest Love Of All and many more.
Nyarayi, (her name means ‘one who is shy’), has brought her Soul & R&B style influenced by Southern African Soul – to the UK.
Nya has been singing on the UK scene providing back-up vocals for ‘Precious Wilson’, ‘Heatwave’, and having featured appearances on the same bill as 60’s & 70’s Legends, ‘The Tremoloes’, ‘The Searchers’, ‘Brotherhood of Man’ and as Lead Vocalist with the ‘3 Ronnettes’.
Nya currently tours the UK performing all over the country as a solo artist and with various groups of talented musicians and singers. She performs covers from the 1960’s to now. This is to pay the bills whilst working on future album material.
