For six time Grammy nominated singer-songwriter, Tamia, “Music is just a part of me and
everything I do, every step that I take.” The Canadian-born vocal powerhouse has lived by that
mantra for a career spanning over two decades and solidifying her as one of the most
recognizable voices in R&B music.
Tamia’s voice has become synonymous with the new definition of soul and spawned hits like
‘You Put A Move On My Heart’, ‘Stranger in My House’, Officially Missing You, ‘So Into You’
(later re-recorded with Fabolous in 2003), and the 2012 hit single ‘Beautiful Surprise’.
Tamia’s first big break came when she collaborated with celebrated music producer Quincy
Jones on the classic album Q’s Jook Joint in 1998, followed by the release of her selftitled
debut. The debut album earned her two Grammy nominations; Best Female R&B Vocal
Performance for ‘You've Put A Move On My Heart;’ Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group
with Vocal for "Slow Jams" featuring Babyface, and Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals for her
work with Brandy, Gladys Knight and Chaka Khan on the single ‘Missing You’ from the Set It Off
Tamia’s star continued to rise in early 2000 after winning an NAACP Image Award
for her chart-topping collaboration with fellow R&B singer Eric Benet, Spend My Life With You,
which was also nominated for a Grammy award that year. As anticipated, Tamia’s next few
albums would be brimming with timeless music that perfectly encapsulated her unforgettable
With the release of Tamia's fifth studio album Beautiful Surprise, the singer explored various
genres of music, blending her special passion with each style and making them her own,
showing her creativity as an artist. The album earned Tamia another two Grammy Awards in
2013: Best R&B Song and Best R&B Album for Beautiful Surprise, a first for a Canadian artist.
A modern day woman and matriarch, Tamia balances her artistry and career with being a
supportive wife to husband and NBA Hall of Famer, Grant Hill and a loving mother to her two
daughters. Together, Tamia and her husband created The Grant Hill and Tamia Foundation
where they continue to be recognized for their philanthropic involvement with several charities.
Tamia is also the founder of Plus 1 Music Group, which successfully released three studio
albums Between Friends, Greatest Hits and Beautiful Surprise.
