September 13, 1987 marks the day that the world welcomed the talented songstress Zilfa into Manhattan, New York. Her name means, “to purify” in Arabic, and with her Jamaican heritage she was surrounded by music and dancing at a young age. By the time her family relocated to Philadelphia, Zilfa could be found singing along to the likes of SWV, TLC, Mariah Carey and Janet Jackson. It wasn’t until she moved to Atlanta that she began to participate in local talent shows and start recording with producers as a solo artist. At 16, she was spotted during a performance and auditioned to be in the trio “Babylove”, upon which she was chosen to complete the group. The girls moved forward to record a demo and gained interest from labels, but disbanded a year later. Undeterred, Zilfa continued writing and recording as a solo artist.
