A native hawaiian, but raised in Jersey City, New Jersey Sharaya has always been an artist at heart. Music has always been prevalent in her life, exposed early by her father who was a member of 90's Hip Hop group Double XX Posse she's always been a natural performer. Looking up to superstars like TLC, AAliyah, Biggie, Wutang Clan, Mary, Janet Jackson and more, she was a true fan of Hip Hop and R&B. With a very successful career in the dance industry working with the likes of Diddy, Rhianna, Alicia Keys as well as great choreographers like Laurianne Gibson, Fatima Robinson and Jamaica Craft; Sharaya is no stranger to the spotlight. Now is her time to take center stage as Missy "Misdameanor" Elliott's new recording artist. She has a fresh new sound and style, inspired by true Hip Hop and underground dance music. She has also spearheaded The "Banji Movement" which encourages the masses to embrace Uniqueness and Originality, thus birthing the acronym Be Authentic Never Jeopardize Individuality (BANJI). Considering her background and love for dance Sharaya says, " I just wanna make fun music, Dance is my root so my goal is to get the people dancin again!!!"
