Minka is an Atlanta girl! Homegrown. Born at Grady Memorial Hospital. "Yup. I'm a native." Classically trained in choral settings since the age of 6 years old. Opera is her training in formal technique. There are some other undiscovered nooks and crannies in the voice as well. Always open to open minds; however, not willing to budge when something looks/feels unfair. What does she like? Minka likes music that is polished, professional and unafraid to be authentic no matter what is "trending". Old fashioned music: where people actually played instruments, made mistakes, and came out with classics. Roberta Flack, Donnie Hathaway, Otis Redding, Bill Withers, James Brown, Maria Callas, Leontyne Pryce, Billie Holiday, Bootsie Collins, P-Funk, Prince, Sam Cooke, Nat King Cole...the picture is got.
