. Biography .
Rebecca Zama is a Boston based singer/songwriter/recording artist. Growing up, she found her passion in singing and in music. She has been performing publicly from the age of 3 all around Massachusetts in venues such as Symphony Hall, Ryles Jazz Club, Middle East Downstairs, and the Hard Rock Cafe.
She specializes in R&B/Pop, but sings a bit of everything. She constantly tries a bit of her Haitian heritage, of which she is proud, into her music. Her inspirations include old time legends like Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald and Whitney Houston and new sensations like Beyonce, Rihanna, Jasmine Sullivan, and Emeli Sande.
She had no formal training until 2011, where she started taking voice lessons to perfect her technique. Since a young age she discovered songwriting and the ability to translate her emotions onto paper and sing them, in her album "brighter than the sun", a few of her original tracks like "Take it Slow" and "Can't Get To Me" are featured. Rebecca also released her first book of poetry entitled "Optimum Me".
The book was inspired by the earthquake which devastated major parts of Haiti in January 2010 and is sold to raise money to help Haiti where she has taken seven humanitarian trips.
