April 20, 2015 | D&LIf you’re brought up in a musical family, you’ll either grow to have the same passion for it, or you’ll grow up wanting something that leads you to a different path.
When it comes to Alia Rose, the daughter of the late, great Teena Marie (the Ivory Queen of Soul), she chose the music path. With a mother who paved the way for white soul singers, she encouraged people to see that it’s not what you look like or where you come from, it’s about what’s in your heart and your voice.
As Alia embarks on a music career of her own, she feels comfortable in her own shoes and what she wants to portray as an artist. Although it’s natural for people to refer to her as Teena Marie’s daughter, there are many qualities she has of her own, which reflects in her own growing fan-base.
When talking about the meaning of her track, Alia said: “’Without You’ is about being with someone and not feeling like you can go on any longer, but knowing that you have to do something to change it.”
With this being her first visual after years of finding her own voice, Alia is on the right path to paving a successful career of her own. Look out for this one!
Here is ‘Without You’.
