Asia’s talent begin to surface around age 6 when she made herself noticeable by performing solos for family members and neighbors. Asia had a passion for singing and realized this was something she was born to do.
In February of 2012 Asia started to pursue her dream.

Asia has performed at places such as the Cobb Galleria, The Georgia Convention Center and Hard Rock Cafe. Asia is a natural in all of the elements of stardom and makes more than a lasting impression. She doesn’t only sing to entertain, but rather to inspire and empower others. Asia single Hey Young World, is that Empowerment song, and she is requested by many Schools, Organizations and Churches to inspire and empower their Youth with a performance of the track.
Asia is in the Studio working on her EP and is currently promoting her single, “TURN UP”, where she is letting everyone know she’s growing up and her sound is too! While she might be growing up with a different sound, she is still a lady and isn’t being overly-sexualized, as so often happens to young up and coming starlets. This new track is very catchy, meaning, her songs are worthy of being on repeat over and over again, because they’re that great. If you like dance worthy music, Asia certainly aims to please.
To have a career at her age is very hard these days and Asia is definitely working her grind, release after release. Whether you think she is just another artist to sell by looks or not you cannot deny that her music is unique, upbeat, captivating and inspirationally amazing. And that is what separates Asia from the rest of her contemporaries!
