Za'kiyyah Whitfield, singer and songwriter, is the next rising star coming out of Philadelphia, Penn. Born on February 14 2000, Za'kiyyah is the youngest of her siblings to embark on a career in music.
Starting as early as age 6, Za'kiyyah picked up singing by simply hearing her mother sing songs by artist Music Soulchild. Couple that with inspirations by Whitney Houston, Mary J. Blige, and Chris Brown, was all Za'kiyyah needed before she began displaying her love for music and the arts.
High school years consisted of performances at Dorney Park 2015 Summer Fling Anti-Bullying Tour, and securing an opening act for the famous Universoul Circus.
MEMA (Minds Emporwering Anti-Bullying) is a foundation started by Za'kiyyah which followed her very own personal experiences of being bullied for being Muslim, in which Za'kiyyah is so passionate about, that she received a citation from the city of Philadelphia.
Za'kiyyah is more than a singer-songwriter,and youth activist, and also found time to start her own cosmetic line Pretty Girlz & Co and Pretty Girlz Lipstick.
