The Biography of Allura
Allura comes from a very diverse background of music, dance, and theatre. From the age of 3 until the present, Allura has danced contemporary modern and jazz with ballet as her discipline. She was also a principle dancer, actress, and singer in a plethora of performances with The Black Academy of Arts and Letters. Allura discovered her talent while singing in the IMPACT Youth Choir at the Antioch Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church.
Growing up, she always knew she was different. While girls her age were playing with Barbie dolls and Nintendo DS games, she was writing song lyrics and short stories. While girls wanted to be fairytale princesses, she aspired to be like Raven Symonè who is also a very diverse artist. Due to her mature mindset and distinct differences, Allura faced adversity at an early age. Not only did this make her stronger, but it contributed to the bold, beautiful, and fearless woman she has become. On the journey of becoming who she is, Allura lost herself in the expectations of society. Instead of following her own dreams, she chose the safer option, which was going to college to earn a degree and becoming an independent, successful woman with no creativity. Allura graduated from the Texas Woman’s University at age 20 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Speech and Language Pathology. With the support of family and friends, Allura is currently living in Dallas, Texas, pursuing her life-long dream of becoming a professional singer. Her goal is to impact the lives of her listeners through the meaning of her lyrics, empower women, and to encourage her audience to be unapologetically human.
