Music at the Frist: Ayanna Jahneé (The Voice finalist)
Please note, this event has expired.
Ayanna Jahneé was born and raised in Nashville. The 22-year-old singer, songwriter, and actor started singing at the age of 4. Growing up, Ayanna was inspired by artists, such as Luther Vandross, India Arie, Amy Winehouse, Phil Collins, Kanye West and Beyoncé. These were the initial artists that sparked her love for music. However, Ayanna’s biggest inspiration and supporter was her talented mother who instilled strength, determination, and creativity while keeping her daughter surrounded by the arts. After losing her mom to cervical cancer, Ayanna understood that life is not promised to anyone. She decided from then on to live life in the moment and to follow her dreams.
Ayanna’s debut appearance was on NBC’s The Voice Season 10, where she landed the very last spot of the season, with coach Christina Aguilera. After her time on The Voice, Ayanna came back home to Nashville to start her band. From there she got the opportunity to begin working on her first EP entitled “Unfinished Business” at Blackbird Studio. This EP carries a message of self-love, empowerment, and inner peace. Ayanna hopes that through her music she can be a positive influence to not only young girls, but to her entire generation and give others the inspiration to follow their dreams. Ayanna is determined to live out her dreams and to share with the world the light her mother passed on to her.
