Early Rising Star

Discovered talent at 3 by her daycare provider Mrs. Mary Moye, she had begun to train West with her vocals by practicing the song “People Get Ready’. West started touching people all over with her vocals. It really didn’t hit her until she was 18 that she wanted to lead a career in singing. Her support system has always been a strong factor in her choice to sing as a career.

West began singing at an early age in the choir, local churches, community events, talent shows, schools, and other events that brought the people together. Through her performance, West loves to spread love through her positivity and uplifting spirit. She loves to use her voice to uplift the community. West reached #1 on the Blues Music Billboard charts with her song “Work It” in May of 2023.

Released in 2018, West’s first single “Keep Pushing”. This song inspired her through her own personal experience with depression which lead to the need to want to help others fight through their trials and tribulations. Releasing other music like “Stop Looking”, “You Betta Go”, “It’s the Weekend”, “Reach”, “Work It”, “Shake It Baby”, “The Mac”, “This Feeling”, “Meet Me at the Trailride”, and “Cowgirl Ride”, West continues to blow our minds.
