Rahkua is a force to be reckoned with, known to captivate audiences and silence crowds within those first crucial moments of stepping to the mic. She has been singing since the age of 3 but really began to discover her sound and passion for music with the release of her singles "You Know (When I Hit the Scene)" and "Shake It Off" in 2011.
After graduating New York University with her BFA in Drama, Rahkua relocated to Los Angeles, CA where she began to further develop her sound. Her debut album, "Love, Loss, Lies" was released May 2013 and she has since performed all over LA including the House of Blues, Club Clobra, The Crest, Club Tatou and others. She also has opened for several artists, most notably CeeLo Green with Goodie Mob at Playhouse in Hollywood, Kellita Smith at Geisha House in Hollywood, and Travis Porter at Styles in her hometown of Jackson, MS.
Rahkua has always written her own music as well as for other artists. Her writing is the perfect synthesis of heartfelt honesty, daring surrealism, and outrageous cynicism while staying relatable and universally applicable. Rahkua's lyrical ability was recognized in her senior year at NYU where she co-wrote theme song "Da Kink" with Sweet Honey & the Rock member, Carol Maillard for internationally renown musical, "Da Kink in My Hair". She has been most inspired musically by Beyonce, Prince, Eminem, CeeLo, and Nina Simone as well as by myriad genres and languages (English - old & new, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Hebrew, Swahili, etc.) that she has sung in all over the US and abroad.
