A native of Richmond, VA, Nicole Tiovanni Hardy (formally known as Niqqi Worldwide) started singing at the young age of 5.  News of her talent spread fast and she was recognized by accomplished music producers and executives. By 15, Tiovanni had landed her first record deal and was working on completing her first Pop album. From that moment she spent over 7 years singing and recording Pop and R&B Music.  Throughout her secular career, Tiovanni realized the importance of philanthropic outreach and spent her time dedicating her talents to support causes such as HIV/AIDS Awareness and Women’s and Children’s Rights, hosting events for BET Networks  In 2014, Tiovanni received national attention with her debut Pop single and landed several major sponsorship deals, one of which lead to her single release party hosted by Kevin Hart. She was also provided opportunities to work alongside main-stream artists. Despite her new found fame and rising popularity, Tiovanni still felt she wasn’t truly fulfilling her purpose in life.
She struggled with the negative temptations that accompany a lifestyle associated with secular music. Her talents began to suffer at the hands of drugs and alcohol and she realized the only way to save herself was to realize who and whose she was. In November 2014, she decided to give her life totally to God and to His purpose for her. The person who was once “Niqqi Worldwide” became “Tiovanni” - Tiovanni being her given middle name. In April 2015, she married the love of her life, Super Producer- William “Twink DaBeatman” Lewis who went on to produce her recently released inspirational EP, “The ReInvention.”  Tiovanni says,“I’ve been blessed to be pulled from the pits of hell and I’m not afraid to go back to help show others the light.”
