Tygressa Jones

Celebrating Natalie Cole on her Heavenly 73rd birthday

Tygressa Jones, most affectionately known as ‘Ty’ by many, was born the fifth of six children – three sisters and two brothers. Ty attended public schools in the suburbs of Maryland, graduating ahead of her class at the age of 16. The first in her family to attend college, Ty furthered her education by earning a Bachelor of Science, Master of Business Administration and Juris Doctor degrees, and professionally serves as Chief of Staff on the Executive leadership team.

Ty comes from a musically inclined and talented family where her mom, sisters and brothers sing, play and love to dance. Ty’s father died when she was only two years old– he too was a percussionist. Music was always in their home and her mom enjoyed joining the children in dance and song. Ty remembers having very little materially, but recalls having all that really mattered: family, love, food, and of course music.

Ty participated in the local area and school talent shows where she showcased talent with her neighborhood girlfriends to tunes by The Emotions, Sister Sledge, High Energy, and The Jones Girls, just to name a few. Ty later competed and won in the area’s Coors Light Super Talent Showcase and auditioned and performed for three consecutive weeks on The World’s Famous Showtime at the Apollo, having been prepped in advance for stage presence by national recording artist, Renee Diggs of the singing group Starpoint. On Showtime at the Apollo, Ty won first place the first and second weeks of her performances where she sang “Lean on Me” by Melba Moore and placed third her final week — and was sent home. Her intimate exposure to the studio work and backstage preparations of several esteemed recording artists only fueled her desire to perform in live settings.

Tygressa Music® combines the music of Tygressa, the Independent Artist, and her highly sought-after tribute to America’s sweetheart, Natalie Cole, Tygressa Sings Natalie…Remembering Natalie Cole, a tribute has performed notable stages such as the legendary Blues Alley and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
