About Fayola Fayola a jazzy, neo-soul singer was born and raised in Trinidad, W.I.. She began discovering her singing talents at the young age of 7, where she would put on her own shows on the steps of her home to her imaginary audience. She then went on to write her first original calypso song at the age of 10 for her elementary school and was influenced and encouraged in part by her older brother, a singer/songwriter in his own rights. Having witnessed his success in later years, she began to cultivate a love for music and entertain thoughts of following in his footsteps. Here in New York, Fay Ola also passionately furthered her calling for music by joining the Imani Singers, the honors choir of Medgar Evers College. It was here that she began training in diverse genres of music such as the renowned classics, southern spirituals and contemporary gospel; she performed such repertoires while touring the southern states with Imani for more than 6 years. It was during this learning period that her love of music grew into an ardor that pushed her towards her destined career in singing and songwriting.
