Renita Cotton was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. She moved to New York City to attend college, fell in love with the city, and decided to make it her home. After a brief hiatus to focus on school, she is now relaunching her modeling and singing careers.
She started modeling at the age of twelve and was signed with a modeling agency and a talent agency before she took a break from the industry. Over the years she has had the privilege of working with designers and photographers throughout the country. She is currently working to rebuild her portfolio and establish herself in the industry once again.
She started singing in church as a child and then began to write music as a teenager when her grandfather encouraged her to learn how to play the guitar. She credits her love of music to her grandfather who sings, plays the guitar, piano, organ, and harmonica.
In addition to providing backing vocals for other artists, she has experience singing in cover bands in New York City and the Baltimore–Washington Metropolitan Area. Right now she is in the studio working on her demo.
