The Canadian-born vocalist’s worked with artists like Babyface, Barry White, Missy Elliott, Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, Gladys Knight, Eric Benet and Gerald Levert during her almost 20-year career and is best known for her singles ‘Stranger in My House’,  ‘So into You’, ‘Officially Missing You’ and ‘Beautiful Surprise’ (off her 2012 album).

Though, those with a few more years behind them will remember when this beauty first teamed up with the inimitable producer Quincy Jones to set the charts ablaze with her cover of the 1993 track by Mica Paris ‘You Put A Move On My Heart’.

Tamia’s love for music started at the tender age of six when she performed on stage at her local church. By the time she was 12 years old, the youngster had already starred in a number of musical productions. After honing her vocal skills and studying piano with renowned Ontario muso Eugene Davis, who encouraged the young star to pursue her dream, Tamia attended the Walkerville Collegiate Institute, a drama, dance, visual arts, media, and vocal secondary school in Canada.

“I feel a connection to all types of music. From soul to country to gospel, as long as the song has a good story, I’m hooked,” says Tamia, and her latest offering is a testament to this sentiment.

The Beautiful Surprise album sees the singer tackle a number of different genres while infusing each song with the Motown flavour that put her on the map. That said, audiences can be sure she’ll perform all of her big hits alongside a few of the newer numbers.
