Chart-topping rising singer-songwriter MARIAH. (with a period) releases new single "BIZNESS".
"BIZNESS", was written by Mariah. and produced by Michael Gardner with musical composition by Sarah Gardner. "Buziness, is written from the perspective of someone who's fed up. It's so easy nowadays to have people involved in your private matters-constantly around you like gnats-offering nothing. The question then becomes: why was the desire to keep tabs more than the commitment to the friendship or relationship?." mentions Mariah. "I'm sure we've all experienced an individual who is 'all up in our business.' This song serves as an invitation to exit!," she adds with a chuckle.
Late last year, Mariah. secured her first Billboard Top 30 R&B song with the smash single, "Material Girl". The song received many accolades and topped various charts around the country. ”Material Girl“ was written by Mariah D. Hester and produced by Edwin Tony Nicholas. "Material Girl is written from the viewpoint of a woman at a crossroads. Should she remain in a relationship that caters to the material and superficial while neglecting what is truly important? In the process of finding herself again, she outlines what is missing: Loyalty. Time. Love. Patience. Teamwork. The things that money cannot buy," mentions Mariah.
MARIAH. is an active partner with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in support of their "Love Music Stop Cancer" Campaign to help raise awareness and funds to save lives via the initiative #MusicGives. #LoveMusicStopCancer.
MARIAH. has appeared on CBS "Great Day Washington", CBS "Great Day Louisiana", FOX Mornings in Chattanooga, CW's Rise Up Charlotte, JTV Morning News (Jackson, MS), and countless other morning shows. Stay tuned as she stops by The iHeart Radio Dunkin' Latte Lounge for an unplugged performance of some of her recent releases.
Mariah. has been singing since the age of 5. The Church Choir, talent shows, school plays, and Mom's rigid vocal coaching were the bedrock of Mariah's initial training. Born Mariah Dawn'e Hester in Shreveport, LA, she is an 'old soul' and animal lover with a flare for the arts- to include public speaking, painting, pottery, and dance.
Strong in her faith in God, this NICU Nurse and proud member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Incorporated continued to sing and perform while pursuing her degree and serving in multiple roles. She's also a prolific songwriter: as demonstrated in her Sophomore release- 'Bizness', produced by Sara G and Mike G. Mariah. is signed to University Park Records based out of Shreveport, La.
