True Legacy has true afro-pop, R & B vibes with that certain essence that only Tora can execute. This short but sweet, island anthem is a taste of freedom; a feel of summer in the winter and an expression of what it feels like to travel and get away.

Tora’s personal statement: I was born in LA and raised by my mother in Arizona as her only child. I began singing, dancing, acting and modeling at the Ade of 4 and met my father when I was 7. My father and I always had a back and forth complicated relationship and my mother is my best friend who has done everything and anything to support me. I grew up doing 4-H and being around animals and horses. I had a few traumatic experiences growing up. At 13, I experienced the death of a loved one for the first time and took it pretty hard. She was a dear friend of mine whom I had spent most of my childhood in a dance program with. Soon after that, when I was 14, I was raped by my first real boyfriend.
At 15 I put together my first band and we played alternative rock music and toured. I then got my GED and auditioned for American Idol. Around that same age, I got my first jobs; one at a music store and the other as a cook in a cafe. I began dating a guy who played guitar and I started another alt. rock band and toured again. After he became abusive and broke my wrist, I moved on. I signed my first record deal at 18 and moved back to LA. After getting screwed over by the manager, I signed with a different company and they attempted to steal my music. So, I went back to AZ and back to school full time and got a job as an animal trainer. During this time it became quite a habit to do singing competitions. After winning multiple local competitions, I was invited to audition in front of Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, L.A. Reid and Nicole Scherzinger on the t.v. show, X Factor; and being mentored by Simon Cowell, I made it very far in the competition. After X Factor I wrote and produced an album and a sold out album release show; then was immediately contacted by several labels wanting to sign. I chose to sign a one year contract with an indie label in Miami and moved there for a year. I worked with The Fliptones and did a song with Jim Jones produced by Timbaland. During that year, my music hit top 40 radio stations and spun across the nation. I did shows opening for Flo Rida, Pink and Method man After that contract ended, I moved back to AZ and became a chef and student full time for a couple of semesters and was offered an international tour by a booking agent.
I found dancers and choreographed 4, 10 minute shows, made costumes, taught the dancers and we flew out to China for 3 months. After the tour, I went to LA again with acting opportunities and did some work in t.v. film and commercials. After a big modeling gig, I found out that my dad had a heart attack and had to have surgery so I moved in with him in Alameda, CA to care for him. I started going to the San Francisco Art institute for painting and performing and they shut all the way down when covid hit. When they finally reopened, I was able to return as a film major. I have several music projects releasing soon and I hope to inspire and motivate people through my music and art. I will bring change by uniting the world through my music, films and my life story.
