Born in Hamburg, Germany to a Senegalese dad and a German mom, this rising star has had a love for music since the age of 6, joining classical choirs, gospel groups and local pop acts. At age 13, she started songwriting and as soon as she recorded her song, she knew this was exactly what she wanted to do, and since then she has been creating timeless music. She sees her childhood idol, Mariah Carey, ABBA, The Bangles, Carmen McRae, Joe Sample and her favorite of today, Linda Perry as high musical influences.
What sets her apart from others? Aside from her being an artist, Amina is very driven and determined to become a successful songwriter/composer. What she is huge on is vocal arrangement and melodies and she describes her music as pure and real. Her goal is to have big songs with truthful, meaningful lyrics, musical and organic sounds and peerless harmonies and now, her catalog holds more than 400 songs that she has written over the past few years. She is formerly of the group Black Buddafly and is currently working on her first ever solo debut album entitled, I Am. Her single “How Can I Be With You” is now currently on iTunes as well as singing with Barbara Tucker at the famous Teatro Pereyra in Ibiza. I am a witness to what Amina can do and the girl is stellar! Be on the lookout for her album coming soon!
