RhythmAndSoulRadio.com presents The Rendezvous. One of NYC’s hottest and longest running events featuring live performances from independent artists.
Join us on Monday, February 24th and enjoy special live performances from
M.C./Singer Ida Divine
A native of Staten Island, NY, LaQuana Thompson, aka Ida Divine, grew up watching mob movies with her father and hanging out with one of her best friends who is the sister of one of the members of the Wu Tang Clan. With Hip Hop as her baby sitter; rapping, singing, and creating lyrics was as natural as hopscotch and jacks. Extremely shy as a child no one knew about the lyrical gifts she possessed.
While on a cruise ship, LaQuana became overwhelmed with excitement and decided to get up and sing karaoke. She impressed the crowd so much with her singing that she took home the trophy that night for best performance. The shy spell was broken. Her passion for singing and performing was ignited and she returned home to begin pursuing that passion with every free minute she had.
