YaLonda was born and reared in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Her love for music and her musical gift emerged from a long lineage of musical giftedness. YaLonda’s maternal great grandmother and great aunts along with her paternal grandmother sang in musical groups throughout her childhood. YaLonda sang her first solo in church at the age of eight and knew by the ago of 12 she wanted a career in the music industry. She attributes some of her inspiration to her home church, Glendale SDA Church, where she had the privilege of hearing powerful singing groups like The Remnants, The Demps & Taylor Families, Ngozi, songwriter and composer, Louis Boney and the Glendale Church Choir which was under the direction of YaLonda’s earliest voice teacher, Cloie Logan. YaLonda’s childhood dream was to sing like the late Whitney Houston at Carnegie Hall. Her favorite musical genre is gospel. A few of her favorite songs are “Pray” by Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, “Destiny is Waiting” by Deon Kipping and “New Life” by John P. Kee.
