To judge Mya Marie Harrison by her undeniably gorgeous surface is to underestimate the strong woman underneath. Mya, celebrated her alleged 39th birthday (October 10) this week, although the only indication of that is that she was making solo hits in the 90’s with “It’s All About Me,” “Ghetto Supastar (That Is What You Are)” and more.
She won a Grammy in 2002 with Pink, Christina Aguilera and Lil’ Kim for their rendition of the Labelle classic “Lady Marmalade” from the Moulin Rouge! soundtrack, then came back with “My Love Is Like…Wo,” in 2003.
In 2009, she finished second on Season 9 of Dancing With The Stars.
While Mya’s mainstream visibility may have cooled since then, the Washington, D.C. native hasn’t slowed down. She was just in Dubai and Singapore, just the latest stamps on an already marked up passport.
