Born in New York City to a musically inclined family, artist Ajada, formally known as Samira Gibson has performed for and with stars such as Donnie McClurkin, Cece Winans, Mary J Blige, Elle Varner, Chaka Khan, Debra Cox, and many more. Ajada shaped her unique style of singing with the training she received from the Harlem School of Arts, and the Professional Performing Arts High School in New York City where she learned to sing in four different languages. Noted for her stage presence, style, and positivity, many can agree with Grammy-nominated artist Major when he says “the world needs what she brings.”
