As an Artist, Ugochi was involved in many vocal performances such as local balls, school games, and charity events, all of which she is very proud of. She sang in choir and concerts around my district and state, most of which were sponsored by my school and school district. Ugochi TheSinger loves music because it is a getaway. It is a gateway to many different portals of self, discovery and Ether. She began rapping shortly into her career because she always copied artists like Twista and Kanye when she heard them rap. Ugochi also loves words, lyricism and poetry a lot! Singing is a frequent expression of who she is, for it was where she initially began, but, rap - put a good hook matched with good lyrics - sh*t bangs just the same, if not, more. She loves the women of today who are getting recognition in the rap game (and vocal!) game. It pushes her to want to experiment with her words plus her voice, more and more while writing sexy, badass music! Ugovhi TheSinger loves it so much and is more than ecstatic to be sharing hers with you.

What Musical Genre Do You Feel Best Describes Your Music And How Would You Describe Your Sound?
R&B and Soul. I am a funky, rock pop vocalist. I have a rich, quirky sound. My written music is more story based. I like to incorporate a main topic, then elaborate on that, whether they are real or fake.
How Did You Get Your Name? Is There A Story?
I got my name mainly from the fact that I like singing a lot. I thought "Ugochi," which is my original name, sounds pretty catchy next to Singer so I said why not combine the two as such. I then realized - I mimicked Chance The Rapper, personally my favorite artist coming out of college. He got me back INTO listening to music as a hobby. Plus, I workout to him, specifically, Acid Rap a lot.
What Are or Have Been Your Musical Influences?
I love Panic! At The Disco, Fall Out Boy, some Green Day music and other rock boy bands of that sorts. I was a big Etta James fan in my early years. And Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, and a lot of performers of this day top that list too.

I am working on an Outbreak EP, a "Love" album, and a more funky, talk my sh*t album. I have a lot of unreleased music under producers such as the YouTube DJs, Kenneth English, JayDot, and J.Grooves. Much of my music, for now, does not have any features - mainly myself and audio implements here and there.
