A gift opens the way and ushers the giver into the presence of the great. (Proverbs 18:16 NIV)
A RISING STAR
DALLAS — In case you don’t know her, Tamikyo Inez would like to introduce herself.
Widely regarded as an accomplished American singer and songwriter I her own right, Tamikyo Inez was born on June 8, 1975 in Memphis, Tennessee.
A longtime Mid-Southerner who has spent the better part of life in the Bluff City, Tamikyo Inez is a proud 1993 graduate of the historic Memphis Mitchell High School.
Consequently, she enrolled at Memphis’ Southwest Tennessee Community College, where she had ultimately acquired an Associate’s Degree in Business Administration in 2108.

Having adopted a keen passion for music, Tamikyo Inez sang her very first solo at the tender age of three, during which she grew up in the church, where she had become fixture in the choir.
Interestingly, this gifted and brilliant entertainer had endued what undoubtedly was a sometime tumultuous and stormy childhood, one that was mired by poverty and abuse, she told Making Headline News during an exclusive interview this week.
“Music has always been a vital source in my life.” — Mid-South Entertainer Tamikyo Inez
Much to her delight, though, it wasn’t until December 11, 2015 — or “at the most rock bottom place in my life,” she recalled — that Tamikyo Inez had witnessed the much-anticipated breakthrough she so desperately sought.
“God gave my life new meaning and purpose through songwriting,” she said. “That opened me up to learning the music business.”
And the rest, as they say, was history.
Today, Tamikyo Inez is the founder and CEO of “12 Disciples Entertainment,” a venture she appropriately dubs “my life.”
“Everything I see in life, I hear as a song,” Tamikyo Inez said of her company, which is steadily attracting a national presence. “My music speaks to anyone who loves and anyone who seeks encouragement through music…especially to dreamers over 40 (years of age) who venture to explore more of life in their mature years.”
Now with her debut single, “Well Deserved” scheduled to be released on August 9, such a milestone will be accompanied by a nationwide tour, during which Tamikyo Inez’s musical talents will be put in display in such places as Atlanta, Dallas, Orlando, Miami, New York, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, among other major establishments.
“My mission is so inspire dreamers to achieve their dreams,” Tamikyo Inez said. “When God created us, He made each of us with a unique calling and purpose. Life has so many setbacks and distractions, but we must be zealous to return to God — His will, His way, and His purpose for our lives.”
NATIONAL STAR WATCH
All things considered, amongst the things about which this Mid-South entertainer is especially grateful is that she never placed her dreams and purpose by the wayside.
In case you don’t know her, well, now you do.
So remember the name.
“I’m here to encourage you to never give up on God, because God had not given up on you,” Tamikyo Inez said. “My greatest inspiration is knowing why I woke up today and when I go to bed at night. I feel amazing, because I was busy fulfilling my purpose. I want that for everyone. That is the zealous life. INEZ (which stands for) I Need Everybody Zealous.”
