Her Music Beginnings: Tonya started singing at the age of 6. As she grew older, she would go with her father to local jails when he went to preach. He would let her sing. The inmates would get quiet and come to the front bars to hear "the little girl with the big voice." Her gift of song prepared them to hear words of encouragement and empowerment.
Tonya, being very close to her parents, saw how they showed compassion toward mankind. She worked right beside her mom and dad as they helped, fed, and showed unconditional love to people in need all over the United States. This album is a compilation of songs that have come from Tonya's life experiences.
Tonya's version of the passionate single release, "Put My Hand in Yours," is just a sample of just how engaging her voice can be.
Tonya is a singer, a songwriter, an aspiring author, and the owner of her own developing production company. She wrote five (5) of the songs on her debut album.
Where has she been: Tonya has been wearing a business suit and continually excelling for the past twelve (12) years in corporate America. She enjoyed a prosperous career as a Senior Account Specialist in the area of Benefits and Retirement Planning for a major Fortune 500 company.
Her Music style: Tonya blends all genres to create music that reaches out and touches your soul. She is "The Voice".
