From a young age, Baiyu has been forging her musical path. Female icons Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston captivated her, and the emotion and power from these soulful divas sparked a new found romance in Baiyu for vocal performance.
While singing has always been the core of Baiyu’s creative experience,
she also immersed herself in activities outside of music such as dance and theatrical arts. As a model and actress, she has worked with Seventeen Magazine, appeared in multiple independent films, and was a host for MTVu’s hit show “The Freshmen” for three years.
Irrespective of her hopes to become an entertainer, she remained focused in her studies, graduating in 2008 from the number one ranked Princeton University; where she was a member of the Black Arts Dance Company and a vocalist for the University’s Jazz Ensemble.
Baiyu released her first EP in 2010 which generated buzz and received airplay on numerous college radio stations. She has since then been featured in Celebuzz, The Source, MTVIggy, SoulTrain.com, Global Grind, Hip Hop Weekly, and various other blogs and magazines.
In 2011 Baiyu has decided to donate all profits from her latest EP, “Fan Fair” towards Japanese earthquake and tsunami relief. The music video for “Together”, the first official single off of that album, was soon after picked up by MTV Networks having premiered on LOGO TV as well as MTVu via their top rated programming. Throughout this entire process, Baiyu continues to support local and international charities in an effort to bring forth funds as well as awareness to a multitude of causes. Armed with intelligence, beauty and ingenuity, Baiyu will pave the way for a new generation of R&B singers.
