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 newfound 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 Princeton University; where she was a member of the Black Arts Dance Company and a vocalist for the University’s Jazz Ensemble.
As a singer/songwriter, Baiyu’s music videos are on rotation on MTV Networks and her story told on SoulTrain; as a fresh face on television Baiyu speaks for her generation as a VJ for mtvU and host on MYX TV; as a young fashionista, Baiyu has graced the pages of PYNK magazine and taken the world on a tour of Fashion Week through the lens of Papercut Magazine. Having released two EPs and one full length project independently, Baiyu has her heart set on connecting even more deeply with her fan base via her latest music project Ayahuasca.
