MAYIA is a dynamic new Greensboro, North Carolina independent recording artist with a rich, soulful sound that exudes power and inspiration! Her sophomore Album, "Becoming MAYIA" is a more intimate glimpse into her life's journey, peeling back the deeper layers of her story. MAYIA guides listeners through a myriad of experiences, such as childhood trauma, mourning, identity, fatherlessness, foster care, disability, and more. As MAYIA confronts these narrative themes for what they are, she, more importantly, highlights God's transformative power. Building on the foundation of her previous album, she continues to drive home the ever-applicable concept of joy and sorrow coexisting.
MAYIA is also an extraordinary individual who has dedicated her life to advocating for invisible disabilities, albinism, and chronic illnesses. Her passion for creating positive change and her unique approach to raising awareness has earned her numerous accolades in the field. MAYIA employs various methods such as creative communication, traditional artistry, media, music, writing, and digital content to establish effective initiatives within the disability arena.
