A stage career was beckoning and Inaya went on to do theatre work in Germany as well as in regional areas of the United States. She understudied Stephanie Mills in ‘The Wiz’ in 1992, receiving rave reviews when she stepped into the lead as Dorothy in New York, St. Louis and Washington DC.

No stranger to recording, Inaya has recorded vocals for some of music’s biggest stars including Michael Jackson, P-Diddy, MC Lyte, Queen Latifah, Moni Love and Missy Elliot.
