Arica is an accomplished performer who hails from Indianapolis, IN. Arica exhibited a talent for performing at an early age. She regularly earned leading roles in elementary school plays, sang, and played the flute. She honed her artistry in musical performance through middle and high school, landing a spot in top singing group, The Madrigals, in her freshman year and sang with them throughout her high school career. She performed in some of the top venues in the city of Indianapolis, and continued gaining accolades singing the national anthem during various events, with orchestras, and her girl group “Spectrum”.
Arica moved on to Fisk University, and during her freshman year, she was immediately accepted to the Grammy-Nominated World Renowned Fisk University Jubilee Singers. This gave her the exposure she needed in Music City! Arica sang background vocals with Grammy winners: Take 6, Willie Nelson, Michael McDonald, Trisha Yearwood, and appeared in a Shania Twain video! Once again she was asked to perform our national anthem and this time it was for a celebrity basketball game for Keith Bullock of the Tennessee Titans. Arica has performed all across the country; even internationally at The Umbria Jazz Festival in Umbria, Italy.
Recently relocated back to the south, Arica is now performing at sold out events all around Nashville, Atlanta and Indianapolis.
Arica credits her love of performing to her mother (the first voice she heard singing), Anita Baker, Stephanie Mills, Angela Winbush, Phyllis Hyman, and Ledisi. These influences, studying music, working with great talent, and her gift from God has made her an unstoppable force to be reckoned with!
