Anakai Ney’s voice reaches to the deep places of the human heart. The Jamaican-born songstress has been singing since the age of 2. Her mother, also a musician in her home country, taught Anakai how to develop her talent for singing since childhood. “I loved to hear my mother sing”, Anakai said, “It always brought me so much peace and I could always hear her heart through the songs she sang”. Since that time, Anakai left her pursuits of a career in medicine to follow her passion-----singing and songwriting. She now works as the Resident Artist at Proximity Café in Pottstown, PA giving live performances three times a week. 

Anakai is also active in her community, performing at local open mic events, jazz and blues jam sessions and church events. This past July she was recognized for VIP choice duet performance of “When You Believe” with her musical partner Cindy Laurent at AMTC’s SHINE Talent Showcase in Orlando, FL. Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey made the song famous and the duo received a standing ovation and were asked to perform the song a second time at the Talent Showcase Finale which was broadcast live online.
