Even as a baby, the contemporary soul artist had the face of a winner.
Emerging to the forefront, Maiysha shows the class that she’s ready to take center stage.
A self-proclaimed shy girl, the young performer got her first big role as Dorothy in a school musical production of “The Wiz.”
Maiysha’s father, an attorney, was a college DJ and offered the singer musical inspiration.
The singer, looking gorgeous here in her prom dress, was noted for her “quirky” style growing up and even dubbed Denise [Huxtable] by her parents.
Maiysha, who began modeling to pay off student loans, has appeared in major fashion campaigns.
The former model offers versatility and imagination in her music. She remade rock singer Peter Gabriel’s 1986 hit “Sledgehammer” on her debut album, “This Much Is True.”
Maiysha, who sets an intimate mood in the studio, was influenced by R&B divas like Chaka Khan and Diana Ross.
