This Kid Rocks: Nia Faith

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. - Many parents pass along their height or their eye color to their kids. Some parents pass along talents. Nia Faith got her mom's beautiful face and her dad's beautiful voice.

"I started singing just because when I was in like the first grade," Faith said. "Eventually my parents were like, 'Oh, that actually doesn't... that sounds kinda good.'"

Faith's father sang in the boy band Four-by-Four in the late 1980s.

Their first single came out in 1987 and the group came away with two top 10 hits before they split up.

The lessons Faith's father learned working in the music industry will be passed along to her.

Just last fall, during a trip to New York, Nia Faith got a behind-the-scenes tour of the famous Apollo Theater when the guide asked if anyone wanted to sing on stage.

"And then I did, and he was like, 'Well you could try out for Apollo Kids next march,' and so we did and I got picked," she said.

Not only did she get picked, she won.

If you have the name and story of a kid who just rocks, we'd love to tell their story. All you need to do is send an e-mail to Page Crawford at
