[Cleveland, OH] Mariama Whyte - Sweet Lovely Curse | Live Performance at Valo

Whether in the recording studio, featured on national stages or crafting a poignant song, Mariama Whyte has the secret recipe that is certain to satisfy even the most discerning palette. She has played leading roles in the Broadway national tours of Disney’s The Lion King and The Color Purple. A graduate of The College of Wooster, Mariama has performed on the Oprah Winfrey Show, shared the stage with mega-producer David Foster, acted alongside Michelle Williams from Destiny’s Child and has been featured in national ad campaigns. She has opened for national and international artists such as Stephanie Mills, Jeff Bradshaw, Algebra Blessett, and Erik Rico.
As a young child, Mariama was immersed in music and performance—studying voice, acting, piano and violin. It was clear to her early on that music and writing would be integral parts of her life and has since become a great performer and profound songwriter. Born to a Jamaican father and an African-American mother and raised in Cleveland OH, Mariama absorbed the sounds of soul, pop, jazz, rock, hip-hop, Broadway musicals, gospel and reggae. She brings a fresh sound she describes as contemporary R&B with splashes of world, jazz and pop influences, evidenced in her music releases, Find Your Light and Take This Dance, her two eclectic EP’s. You can also hear her new single, I Need You, on Northeast Ohio’s premiere smooth jazz/r&b station 107.3The Wave. Inspired by countless music icons, Mariama delivers passion and heart in her music and performance. Equally vibrant behind the scenes, Mariama has a broad songwriting scope and is always penning new, unique ideas and has songs in development for other music projects.
Mariama is a young woman of undeniable skill, talent and exceptional artistry, a rare gem. With beautiful, unique melodies and lyrics, versatile music, an empowering message and a distinct voice of pure range and power, Mariama Whyte is destined to flourish as an innovative musical powerhouse.
