NiNi Signs Tasha Morgan

The unsigned up and coming artist known as "Ta-Ta" recently had NiNi make a beat for her that blew up over the Internet, then not long after, she signed a deal with PSR. Sources report that Ta-Ta received a call from NiNi offering a deal with the label which she accepted. Its said that she has been signed to a 1 year development deal worth 44 million dollars which is for one album and 3 videos as well as studio costs and marketing/promotion costs. After her development deal is up she has the option to sign a full artist contract with the label if she does well in this year. Her development contract lasts until September 29th 2015. She announced it herself over her Twitter posting "Thank you to @NiNi and @PSR for taking a chance on me, dream come true!" If you aren't aware on who Ta-Ta is, check out this mini-biography of her. Ta-Ta was born Tasha Nicole Morgan, she was born and raised in Detroit Michigan on July 4th, 1989 (25) and she began singing at the age of 7 in her mother's church. Local talent scouts recognized her singing ability and put in calls to talent shows in the area. She was a huge part in local talent shows at schools in her neighborhood, but she grew up in a very rough neighborhood in Detroit close to 8 Mile. She struggled with poverty and violence for the first 13 years of her life and had to put up with not knowing her biological father and a stepdad who would physically and emotionally abuse her and her mom when he was drunk. She never lost her passion for music through all of her hardships and used music as her healing outlet. She began writing songs at age 11 and by 12 was in the studio professionally recording her music. At age 15, due to a fight, she was kicked out of high school, and shortly after she lost her mom due to a fire while she was sleeping over a friends house. Her stepdad also abandoned her when her mom passed. She moved in with her aunt where her passion for music continued and became deeper. Throughout the next 6 years she made a name for herself around Detroit as a talented singer earning money for performing at local clubs during mic nights and etc. Her music was doing well, but her personal life was not, during this time she was 21, and she fell into a heavy addiction of Alcohol and other drugs like weed and Ecstasy until she checked herself into a 3 month rehab program where she was able to get and stay sober. By pure luck, on her 23rd birthday her and a group of friends were at a popular pizza spot where she was singing just for fun, and one of the talent producers from the TV show "American Idol" walked in and was blown away by her voice and offered her a spot on American Idol. Within 2 months she was on American Idol where she impressed every one of the judges, but unfortunately, she did not win. That appearance though skyrocketed her name in the music game and she set up a website where her fans can download her music and get her full bio, and she gained over 6 million fans within 7 months. She has recorded songs with big names like Mary J Blige and Keyshia Cole and was offered a 1 song deal with AR Records which she turned down. At age 24 her daughter was born to another up and coming artist named "Piru B" based out of LA who was killed in a drive by shooting after leaving a local show in Compton a few days after their daughter was born. Ta-Ta began her career as "Tasha Morgan" but changed it to Ta-Ta recently because that's what her late baby's father always called her. Her musical influences are Keyshia Cole, Beyonce, MJB, Mariah Carey, Gladys Knight, Cymphonique, Taylor Swift and NiNi. To check out her full bio head over to her official website here.....Sources say she is in the process of recording her first song for PSR which always is a collab with the boss for new artists first songs, so lookout for that....Congrats to Ta-Ta on signing pretty sure we will be hearing much of her in the future....
