About R&B Singer Treasur’
Chicago Artist Treasur is a 24-year-old singer and songwriter from Chicago, IL.
Most of her early years were gospel-based, singing from church to church, and leading music ministry. As an adolescence, she sang for the Mayor and the Secretary of State.
Treasur’s artistry grew over time with training from the gospel star Darius Brooks, who assisted artists such as R. Kelly and Mariah Carey. As a ballerina, from ages 6-9, she always shined in one way or another.
In 7th grade, the biggest tragedy of her life occurred when her brother, who was also an up and coming rapper by the name of “One Day”, with just days before meeting with Def Jam, was killed.
Treasur’ knew her dream, along with her brother’s dream, had to come true, so she took on the responsibility of bringing both dreams to life.
Outside the church, Treasur’ sung in the hit Broadway play “BIG”; here her performance skills trained her to a new way of life. Treasur’ released
independently a mixtape titled “X Marks the Spot”.
Still rooted deeply in the church, Treasur’ sang overseas with one of the biggest contemporary gospel groups by the name of the “Soul Children of Chicago” performing in Rome, Italy, and Switzerland.
Confident in her sultry, but subtle approach to R&B and Hip Hop, Treasur’ enrolled in Columbia College of Chicago, where she majored in Vocal Performance.
Her single “OYS”, landed her on the airwaves in the city of Chicago along with her first featured video. This was followed by collaborations with other local artists.
Auditioning for major shows such as “The Voice”, “Sunday Best”, and “X-Factor”, she later teamed up with Billboard Top 10 winning producer D Moet, best known for the Nas classic “Hate Me Now”.
Treasur’ created a one-woman show in her hometown Chicago, to raise money for her to get to NYC. It also manifested to her being in the same room with many labels such as RCA and Atlantic, with a claim of independence.
With Treasur’s return to her hometown and a new re-invented sound, she began to perform at many local events. After perfecting her performance, Treasur’ was a contestant in the worldwide competition Coast 2 Coast Live, where she advanced to being one of the top 5 in the world.
In her accomplishment, Treasur’ released a 90’s inspired single entitled “Can We” in which she released an R&B interlude entitled “Last Call”.
Currently Treasur’ is a writer for some of the biggest names in music, she’s excelling in different fields such as dancing and modeling and is expected to become one of the brightest stars of the new millennium.
