Award-winning Nigerian-born Gloria Maduka is a unique international singer-songwriter. Her music and dance styles are influenced by mainstream pop rock infused with African elements. From a tender age, Maduka was exposed to some of the music industry’s greatest artists including Bob Marley, Christy Lane, Mary McKee & The Genesis, Jim Reeves, Amy Grant, and Abba. These childhood influences spurred her music interest.
While a young teenager in Africa, Maduka began to perform in church to large audiences. The connection she felt with the audiences and several ovations she received led to the creation and direction of her church’s youth choir for three years before departing for the US to further pursue her career in music and college degrees.
Maduka sang and played music at every opportunity. She made the headlines with one publication labeling her as “bringing down the house” and was the first foreign student to be crowned either Ms. Black & Gold or Ms. UWA. She hosted her own local TV talk show on campus and was the anchor for the Livingston Community News.
Maduka was also frequently invited to perform at a number of sporting events, special events, and pageants. In the summer of 2002, Maduka was offered an internship on Capitol Hill, Washington DC where she came in contact with a few music industry executives who encouraged her to pursue music as a career.
