Made with Freeway - Web creation without the pain


Alencia’s music is an amalgamation of colors and timbres from R&B, jazz, classical, and neo-soul. Her love for writing poetry drives the lyrical intensity of her songs. Alencia’s music tackles complex topics from societal division to love in all its forms. She released her first single “Sleeping All Year” in October 2019. Her song “Black Butterfly,” about the challenges faced by black people in America was sung and toured by the Chicago Children’s Choir. The song was also featured in A Tale of Two, a virtual performance by Hubbard Street Dance Company that premiered in October 2020.
