Back in 2013, I was asked to come film some behind-the-scenes footage for a new singer at her photo shoot. When I arrived, I walked in kind of blind because I had no idea who I was looking for until I heard my name come from this radiant young lady sitting in a makeup chair to my left. Normally greeting someone by name would be a minor detail, but not here; she and I had never formally met before. So for her to greet me by name as if we had been friends for years while she was in the middle of getting dolled up by a makeup artist and a hairstylist, it's just apart of her allure. Aside from her vibrant personality and natural luminous beauty, she has this very familiar aura about her that makes her impossible to ignore. You wrap all of that up, give it a unique name and what you have is that thing that stars are made of. What you have is someone who can have the world as her very own oyster. What you have is Terilisha.
Terilisha is a Dallas native and up-an-coming singer-songwriter. She fell in love with music early in life, nothing the late Aaliyah as one of her biggest musical influences. Terilisha debuted in 2013 with her first single, "Spotlight". The song created a little buzz in Dallas that had people wanting to see and hear more. But life and a few professional set backs caused Terilisha to fall back and collect herself. She took some time to regroup and reorganize; now, she's back focused and more determined than ever. On Memorial Day, she dropped her new single "N.A.S", a song aimed squarely at guys who refuse to give up their dishonest and dishonorable ways. "N.A.S" is slated to appear on an upcoming EP she has in the works entitled, Press Play. But Terilisha doesn't plan to just stop with music, she plans to be a complete multifaceted entertainer. With aspirations of becoming an actress and an author in the future, she currently hosts a webseries called Girl Talk: No Filter.
Like I said, the world is Terilisha's oyster. As long as she maintains her work ethic and surrounds herself with the right people, I see nothing but good things on the horizon. Soon the world will open up to her and even those trifling guys she calls out on "N.A.S." won't be able to deny her. Though, I'm sure they'll try.
