Blaire has been singing since the age of 5, when she joined the choir at Burning Flame Christian Church and Living Center. She realized early that music would always be an important part of her life.
“Singing makes me happy inside,” said Blaire. “Sometimes I even cry, but it is a happy cry.” She has performed in numerous plays, and for local churches, youth programs, and service organizations. She performed in the Gospel Explosion at Livingstone College, where she was the youngest performer on stage.
Blaire’s single, “Little Girl,” is about a woman encouraging girls to enjoy their childhood. The song advises them not to be in a rush to grow up too fast. The lyrics suggest to young girls that if they make good choices, they will triumph in their lives.
“Little Girl” was written and produced by the legendary Paul Laurence, who is known for working with Freddie Jackson and Stephanie Mills.
“Little Girl” will soon be available for download on Ashley’s website, www.artistashleyblaire.com.
