"Earth is Ghetto" has gone viral!
Nikkialiah released an in-home version on Youtube, Instagram, and TikTok late December 2020 and the hype started!
There’s no question about it, singer-songwriter Aliah Sheffield, aka Nikkialiah, has always loved music. For her, it isn’t just a “thing” she does, it’s a way of life. It’s in her blood; her heart; her soul.
Born in Newark, New Jersey and raised in Savannah, Georgia, Aliah has always been a singer. Her musical influences cover a wide range: Deniece Williams, Donny Hathaway, Aretha Franklin and Patti LaBelle, to name a few. She played a number of instruments in grade school, including clarinet and saxophone. In high school, she was encouraged to explore the piano as she discovered her songwriting abilities. While studying film scoring at Berklee College of Music she began to experiment with fusing genres, particularly soul and R&B, to create her unique keyboard driven style.
Yes, her music is heartfelt; her vulnerability definitely shows. But at the same time, her songs are also inspiring and empowering.
Today, Aliah is fulfilling her dream of performing and sharing her music, capturing audiences in settings from intimate to grand. Working with industry veterans as well as other rising stars, she is currently writing and recording songs for her next release.
Aliah Sheffield is ready to take the world by storm, so have your best umbrella ready!
