Who is Ziina?
Many people ask, “ When did Ziina begin performing? ”
Ziina was actually born Carmen Ziina Vasquez and was surrounded by musical influences from an early age.
As young as the age of four, Carmen began singing in church, igniting a fire in her, and thusly creating the entity known as Ziina.
While in school, Ziina’s talent was recognized by her classmates, teachers and community. Through her experiences in several female singing groups, her true calling as a solo artist was realized. Although unaware of her natural allure, Ziina was later approached at an industry event by a modeling scout.
Ziina was featured in videos for several music heavyweights such as Algebra Blessett, JaRule, and Wyclef Jean, while simultaneously modeling for several major clothing lines magazines and media.
Ziina chose to follow her first passion, which is music, and has been able to shine at many venues throughout the New York Metropolitan Area. Unexpectedly, personal tragedy struck her life, causing her to momentarily step away from the music industry completely. Unequivocally, she is now back on the scene, channeling her heartache, pain, and experience into her own unique sound.
