What does it take to achieve 8 Grammy nominations, multiple Billboard recognition awards as well as invitations to perform with the elitist pack of your artistic peers? Talent for one thing, is the basic requirement. While a perfectly professional track record will add flame to the fire. But what if you were able to throw in a hereditary element?
Let’s say for example you are the daughter of international recording artist Evelyn Thomas, the niece of Opera singer Robert McFerrin and the cousin of Grammy award winner Bobby McFerrin.

There is something breathtaking and astonishing about Yaya Diamond. Her voice can be as strong as an ocean current in full storm, but as gentle as a floating cloud in a deep blue sky. She knows her craft and brings it to songs like her single “Everything Will Be Alright,” featuring former lead singer of the group Inner Circle, Carlton Coffie, or her Grammy-nominated collaboration with Walter Clyde Orange of The Commodores.
