What to Expect
Samira's music awakens the soul. Her voice is just something beautiful. This comes from the artist actually being in tune with self and allowing her God-given talents to resonate with others.
To experience Samira Gibson live in action is something that's remarkable and unreplaceable.
Her performance has an edge to it. Performing covers from Aretha Franklin, James Brwon, Whitney etc. Also having original music makes her a force that must be reckoned with.
As an Indie artist, Samira Gibson has accomplished more in her young life than most artists dream possible. With her rich, powerful vocals, Samira is a three time winner at the world famous Apollo Theater. She also performed as a vocalist and actress in several musical productions such as “Your Arms Are Too Short to Box With God,” featuring Dr. Cissy Houston and Desire Colman. Born in New York City, NY to a musically inclined family, Samira’s calling in the world of music was planted, later to be nurtured.
Samira honed her unique style of singing with the training she received from the Harlem School of Arts and the Professional Performing Arts High School in New York City where she learned to sing in four different languages. Samira gives credit to her parents, and industry greats such as, Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill, India Arie, Beyonce Knowles and many more for being influential to her career. When she’s not performing, Samira can be found teaching vocal performance and sign language to 3rd to 5th graders for a non-profit organization, or creative directing for photo shoots and music videos. Simply put, Samira is genuine, passionate, and authentic!
In an industry where artist have to fend for themselves to get the recognition due to them, Samira has remained true to who she is and to her music. One of her song’s titled, “One Way Trip” from here Ep “Reflections of Mira,” speaks on her motivation to succeed in an industry seemed to be cut out for a selected few. "My latest project, Reflections of Mira", is about finding your mental freedom, said Samira, “breaking passed your fears and rising above obstacles in order to access your ultimate level of self; Then reflecting your greatness on the world, causing a counter reaction of the same cycle."
Samira has performed for and with stars such as Donnie McClurkin; Cece Winans; Ashford&Simpson; Ben Vareen; Mike Bloomberg; Plies; Debra Cox; Chaka Khan; Mary J Blige; Elle Varner and many more. Once you've met Samira you can appreciate the quote, "Big things truly come in small packages.
