We do not stand upon ideals but instead, WE are the pillars, the building
blocks, the foundation of what we and the women before us have worked so hard to erect.
As a little girl growing up in Carson, California, Rhyon, at the age of five, discovered what she truly loves, and from that moment has been fearlessly paving her own path. It all began as she sat on the stairs near the edge of the stage at the Los Angeles Theater Center watching her older sister play the role of Dorothy in The Wiz. She was intrigued with the singing, dancing, and acting of the young performers and knew that she had to become an entertainer.
She joined the Amazing Grace Conservatory where she honed her skills in the arts performing in an array of musicals including Little Shop of Horrors, Grease, Oliver, Dream Girls, and ten years after sitting on those stairs she was cast as Dorothy in, you guessed it, The Wiz! At home, it was talent shows in the living room, Sarah Vaughn, Fred Hammond, India Arie, John Legend, Beyonce, and Adele blaring from her bedroom, Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, and Dorothy Dandridge on the TV in the family room, and late nights watching anything Meryl Streep appeared in. But then that explains why her music consists of soul-searching ballads, modern-day R&B and pop smashes. She can't be defined or confined. In a word, she's a student of the arts!
Rhyon is far from average. She was a great student, a working actor, and a fun loving, outgoing, well0rounded kid. But, it was her sound education and her passion for the arts that secured her a position in the worlds' number one film school, the USC School of Cinematic Arts. There she refined her skills behind the camera and was selected to write and direct the music video for a song she penned for the Columbia Records recording artist RaVaughn.
As her passion for music grew she spent many of her college nights in dorm rooms writing, recording demos, and singing covers. Her love for music had been unleashed! She got into the studio and began working with the right producers and four years later, with her degree in hand, she returned in front of the camera and began merging music and acting. In one of her most challenging roles to date, she portrayed Michel'le in the Lifetime biopic Surviving Compton while completing an album and a self-penned short film to introduce her music project Pretty Girl to the world.
Rhyon's goal is to take us back to a time when being an entertainer meant you sang, acted, and danced, and you were GREAT at all of it. Her music is her tool to inspire people to be comfortable in their skin, to know that being who they are is the only way to find their true purpose in life, just as she found hers.
Rhyon is in truth...The Triple Threat!
