From Milwaukee, WI, Akua grew up watching her father, Bill Taylor, report the news everyday, as a 29 year television journalist for the NBC affiliate station TMJ4. Akua's mom instilled the arts in her life by taking her to piano lessons and acting classes so Akua started performing in plays and recitals at age 8. Acceptance to Fisk University in Nashville, TN was hugely formative as Akua became a proud member of the Jubilee Singers and toured the world performing Negro Spirituals. Senior year, Akua was crowned Miss Fisk University and wrote her first one woman play about Assata Shakur. After graduating with honors, Akua moved to New York City and landed roles with the Billie Holiday Theatre in Brooklyn and launched her company Precious Messenger Productions, specializing in motivational musical presentations. Akua sang to students all around the Elizabeth, New Jersey school district and encouraged them to follow their dreams. Meanwhile, Akua independently produced positive music, promoting messages of self-love. Marrying and becoming a mom greatly inspired new productions and a move to Atlanta, GA. Akua became a principal singer with several corporate bands and shot her first music video for her most popular song, “Approve.” The album "MIXTAPE" is a journey through Akua's early songwriting, streaming on all platforms. The pandemic shifted artists’ ability to perform but Akua still co-produced a series of chakra songs with VortxMath called “4THIRTY2” https://4thirty2.bandcamp.com/. What sets her apart is that Akua means “precious messenger,” therefore she feels it is her God-given purpose to create positive, inspirational art. Akua's mission is to be a conduit for love and light. Her mission is to spread positivity to people who need encouragement. Her mission is to create mantra music that can be used as tools for healing. Her mission is to make it easy for listeners to connect with their divine selves and be their best selves. Akua loves what she does because when she sings, she's singing for a greater purpose.
