LeAnetta Robinson (Born June 17,1993), often known simply as LeA, is Outgoing, ambitious, and an eccentric Recording Artist, Songwriter, Dancer, Clothing Designer, and Actress. Born and raised in New Jersey, LeA Robinson, is most known for being the late granddaughter of musical legend Sylvia Robinson, founder of Hip-Hop and Sugar Hill Records and also having her very own Super Sweet 16 on MTV. Sylvia along with husband, Joe Robinson became instrumental in the emergence of Rap music as a format, and the introduction of Hip-Hop to the mainstream market, with the release of "Rappers Delight" performed by the Sugar Hill Gang in 1979. LeA will be releasing her first EP entitled "The Legacy" as a dedication to commemorate her late grandmother Sylvia, debuting to the world early 2012.
LeA unintentionally launched her music career while in high school with two best friends, not through the Hip Hop world as most would have expected, but by forming a group, called The Bonde. The Bonde's sole purpose was bringing a humanistic teen voice to world issues impacting teenagers, women and girls. LeA and her friends were invited to collaborate with The United Nations and the World Health Organization. The Bonde was immediately requested to perform and present to world leaders. These best friends turned down mainstream recording deals and publicity since their mission was altruistic. LeA gained invaluable recording and performance experience, including singing at The Izod Arena for the NBA and The United Nation's "World Health Day Anthem". Recently, The Bonde girls graduated high school (best friends) but each went onto pursue college or individual careers in music, reuniting as The Bonde for world events upon request.
Surrounded by musicians from birth, LeA has always been at the epicenter of music. Growing up around musical idols like her grandmother, being around major artists/tours, and the formation of Sugar Hill Records has all been an influence for LeA's love for music. LeA describes, "My grandma's family get togethers were always filled with excitement and entertainment, "Uncle Joey (Joey Robinson of "Sugar Hill Gang") and family members and guests would always have stories to tell about music, life and their journey while musicians, celebrities, and politicians would drop in frequently."
Armed with a "family gene" for music and many unique experiences, LeA will launch "The Legacy" which includes, personal written songs, with an alternative unique sound. LeA's songs reflect emotions she feels words can not fully capture. Being a teenager and doing music is hard, and LeA wanted to make sure her fans heard through her songs the daily struggles she faces; she fully embraces the fact that her flaws and obstacles make her who she is today. "I've never been so happy with my music, and I'm super exited about my songs, and how far I have grown as an artist since I first began on my musical journey".
Following the EP dropping early 2012 LeA's listeners can anticipate a hot new radio single as well as music videos to proceed. Fans can expect a promotional tour targeting, middle schools, high schools, and colleges. LeA loves performing and interacting with her fans and feels visiting schools and talking to the students is a must on her up-coming promotional tour. "I cant wait to show the world what I've been working on. I've never been so anxious and excited about my music in my life as I am now". Often compared to "a young Beyoncé ", LeA Robinson has tall shoes to fill but with her head held high, unique fashion sense, driving dance style, and soprano vocals, she will continue to mature and secure the throne as music's next heiress. Her grandmother Sylvia would be proud.
