Upcoming and independent R&B artist Anjaleia McDonald has come a long way from home to pursue her music career. Born in Fort Bragg, North Carolina on December 27th 1993, Anjaleia continuously auditioned for modeling jobs as a child. Anjaleia’s creative process has been influenced by several genres of music such as Soul, R&B, 90s music, Rock, Country, Reggae, Hip-Hop, and Rap since the age of 7. She relentlessly worked to perfect her vocal ability, which in turn ignited a passion for songwriting, vocal arranging, and producing. Taking full advantage of the opportunities her mother helped put together, Anjaleia was able to share the stage with some very established artists such as Rasheeda from Love & Hip Hop, D4L, and most notably Academy Award-winning combo Three6Mafia in the year 2006. In the same year, she appeared in an independent film entitled “Life After Love”.
After a large gap of self motivated artist development, Anjaleia decided to move across the country by herself in the fall of 2013. This was one of the most stressful choices this family-oriented young woman ever had to make. She decided to enroll at Hollywood’s Musicians Institute to pursue a degree in Vocal Performance. In March of 2014, she was blessed to be given the opportunity to join one of LA's most talented production teams, Track Martians Music Group. As an integral part of this professional crew, Anjaleia is poised to succeed.
She released her debut single, “Ain’t Got Time” with Track Martians on June 10, 2014, which charted #8 on the iTunes Independent R&B charts.
In October of the same year, she released her second single "I Got It", which featured upcoming Hip Hop artist Lex Lu.
Her third single "Boomerang" featured Disney/Nickelodeon actor Jamason Coles and Track Martians Music Group CEO EJ Jones and was released on May 9th 2015.
The release of “Boomerang” led to securing a distribution deal with the Track Martians Production Label, an imprint through Ingrooves/Universal/E1.
Determined to reach new heights, Anjaleia remains hungry and works hard to showcase her steadily growing talent. With her incredible voice, unrivaled passion for music, and "never say die" attitude, this young songstress continues to work through life's adversities, always keeping her family at the forefront, and aiming to wow and inspire her growing fan base.
