A self made woman and mother of two boys, Nikia Smith wants to leave this Earth known for her gift. “I started singing at the age of 4 in the church choir”, said Smith. Nikia Smith developed the art of singing from her mother who would sing around the house while Smith was growing up. Born in New Jersey, but raised in Greenville, Alabama is the place where Nikia would grow and learn her way in the world. Smith is not considered in any particular genre of music, but “As long as it’s tasteful, I’m down for it”, expressed Smith. She has a wide range of music that she is familiar with from R&B, Gospel, and Neo-Soul. You can hear Nikia sings at certain places such as “My Place”, “Village Gallery”, etc.
