My name is Gwanita Riley. I was born July 16,1985 before I got married on April 20,2015. My birth name was Gwanita Miracle Marshall. I am 30 years old and I been singing since I was 10 .That's when I discovered that music can change your mood and console your heart. As a child I grew up in the church and still is. I sanged in the choir at my grandparents church (CLC) as well as Greater Mt.Calvary holy church. I use to be in this group called Chaos when I was 16,we travel as a group Managed by DJ Moore who showed me to sing from the soul. Growing up in DC for me is a lovely experience. We have so much talent here. I feel that I'm in no competition because our gift all come from God so we all are winners. I grew up around Riggs Parks on Chillum place N.E until high school lived out Silver Spring MD then back to DC (couldn't stay away..I love my city lol) Graduated from Spingarn High School home of the Greenwaves. At the age of 21 I had a baby her name is Ivy Nicole shes 9 and is every bit of me my mini it's been hard being a single mother for so many years due to her father being incarcerated for 8 years or so I'm thankful for his continued support and love that never failed.. I'm grateful that God has given me patience to endure his absence which allows me to prepare for his soon arrival. I come from a loving close-knit family which is why I believe in the term"Family Over Everything" a special shout out to my siblings who have always been there for me. To my parents who never gave up on me and to my CuzzinClan the best friends I can ever have..To my Aunts and Uncles thanks for your encouragement. To the originators my grandparents for your continued Prayers and last but least all of my Friends,Fans and Supporters. I can go on and on but this is why I'm forever grateful
