http://rebeccazama.com2io/Rebecca Noelle Zama is a 15 year old 11th grader who was born in Washington D.C. but has been living in Boston since the age of one. Growing up, she found her passion in music and writing. She has been performing publicly from the age of 3 all around Massachusetts, everywhere from galas to political events to fundraisers. She began singing in the populated Haitian community in Boston and branched out. She is proud of her Haitian-American heritage and speaks Haitian Creole and French, in addition to English. Being a dedicated musician, she looked for opportunities wherever she can find them. She has been in plays at Stoneham Theatre and Children’s Theatre Workshop. In the movie “Against the Jab”, she plays the character “Jacky”. Rebecca has also done extra work in movies like “The Game Plan”, “The Zookeeper”, “That’s my Boys”, “Here comes the Boom”, and “RIPD”. She has also been in commercials for Hood Milk and Friendly’s Restaurant. Last winter, Rebecca released her first book of poetry entitled “Optimum Me”. The book was inspired by the earthquake which devastated major parts of Haiti in January 2010 and is sold to raise money to help Haiti where she has taken seven humanitarian trips.
Rebecca specializes in jazz, R&B, blues and pop but sings a bit of everything. Her inspirations include old time legends like Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald and Whitney Houston and new sensations like Beyonce, Rihanna, Christina Aguilera and Emeli Sande. She had no formal training until 2011, where she started taking voice lessons to perfect her technique. Since a young age she discovered song writing and the ability to translate her emotions onto paper and sing them. In her upcoming album “Brighter than the Sun”, a few of her original tracks like “take it slow” and “can’t get to me” are featured. Last July, Rebecca released her first music EP “Brighter than the Sun”.
