Born the youngest of six and raised in the heart of California’s Silicon Valley, Breana Taylor is an American singer, songwriter, choreographer, dancer, and actress. She was singing and dancing by the age of six, and went on to attend a variety of performing arts schools the most influential of which was the prestigious Children’s Musical Theater San Jose. Taylor also trained in Abraham Lincoln High School’s Performing Arts program. She earned her B.A. degree from California State University Long Beach, with a major in Dance and an emphasis on Communication.
Taylor’s singing and dancing reflect a rich ancestry. Her father is a Louisiana Creole with African, French, Native American and Irish lineages. Her mother is of Armenian and Scottish ancestry. This heritage has deepened Taylor’s spirit and her ability to connect with a global audience.
Taylor has danced and choreographed professionally for a variety of live shows, television programs, music videos, and movies. “I was never one to settle for sounding like everyone else,” she explains, “I’ve always challenged myself to be the best with my vocals so they would stand out in a positive way. I am living out my wildest dream at the ripe age of 25, and I am loving it.”
Taylor’s dreams are not limited to herself. She consistently shares her deeply felt intentions to make contributions. “I would like to give back to the performing arts and dance departments in local schools, pre-school through high school, because if it wasn’t for those programs I wouldn’t be the person I am today.”
Her high-profile presence as singer and dancer in The Gratitude Project marks an exhilarating leap in Breana Taylor’s career.
