Tehillah
New-Jersey-born and Nebraska-raised, Tehillah had an early introduction to music at the age of three. Her professional musical endeavors began in high school with her acceptance into the inaugural session of A Cappella Academy, a teen summer intensive designed to train and mentor up-and-coming vocal talents in the art of a cappella. After attending The Academy, she has also had the privilege of performing in Carnegie Hall as a part of the 2015 Honors Performance Series Choir and in the New World Center in Miami as a 2016 YoungArts Popular Voice finalist. These opportunities led Tehillah to her dream city of Los Angeles, where the rising senior currently studies Popular Music Performance in USC’s Thornton School of Music, with a dual emphasis in Voice and Piano.

“Tehillah prides herself in her work as a session singer, arranger, and music director. You can hear her voice and work on the television shows of The Affair, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Late Late Show with James Corden, and a number of records, as well as performing backing vocals for singer-songwriters and musical ensembles across LA. Despite her comfort in the background, she is ecstatic to step out and spend her 21st birthday performing her original music at The Mint!
