  • My Bio (Introducing Sunyani)

    At the age of five Sunyani Pokua Henry began singing. Though in those days she didn't venture much further than orchestrating concerts for her dogs in the backyard, her passion remained steadfast despite the neighbor's complaints of her constant "hollering." It wasn't until she met her stepmother at the age of eight that Sunyani truly discovered she had a voice. Her stepmother taught her to harmonize, read music, and to take her talents publicly by entering her into the church and school choir. Her talents were able to flourish throughout her schooling, always involving herself musically in some way. In elementary school Sunyani was the choral director, took up the saxophone and even dabbled a bit in piano. In junior high she was in the choir and had the honor of singing "The Greatest Love of All" by Whitney Houston, a strong influence for her at the time, at her graduation ceremony. In high school, Sunyani joined the school's show choir, the Madrigals, and was able to perform with them cross-country. In tenth grade she won a beauty pageant with her rendition of "Black Butterfly," and sang once again at her graduation ceremony, this time performing "Bridge Over Troubled Waters." After high school she pursued her music career by joining an all girl singing group. Struggling to achieve their dream of success they sought out a seven year recording contract. Afterwards they chose to go their separate ways, Sunyani, ironically vowing to never sing again.

    Throughout her younger years Sunyani was influenced by artists such as Sade, Phyllis Hyman, and Anita Baker. Looking back at her eleven year old self she remembers their words coming alive, seeping into her soul. Though she may not have fully understood the depth of their lyrics, Sunyani certainly understood the emotion. Focusing in on the smoothness of Sade, the power and passion of Phyllis Hyman, and the gracious emotion of Anita Baker, Sunyani longed to possess their gift of expression. Now, at the age of thirty-eight, she has acquired such a gift and is able to use her life experiences to feed her expression in song. When she sits down to write she is influenced by the very stuff of life; love, passion, discovery, pain, and peace. Through her writing she aims to heal, not only herself, but others as well. Sunayni's passion for life comes from her 12 years as a practicing nurse. Through such experiences she has learned the value of living life to the fullest and hopes to express such understanding to her audience. After holding it in her hands for so long throughout her younger years, Sunyani has finally discovered her bliss. Over the next five years it is her earnest intention to give quality music to the world by recording and touring worldwide. Her long-term goal however is to always be the conduit for beautiful music to flow, singing and making music well into her prime. Sunyani's music is an extension of self- classy, sophisticated, loving, and down to earth. It is for everyone who is able to appreciate the lovingly crafted fusion of Jazz and R&B. She believes that music is the universal language and is expressed not through words but through emotion. Sunyani aims for a diverse audience of many ages and nationalities. Her music is not demographic specific, but rather emotion specific. Sunyani speaks to the heart of each individual who listens.
