Growing up, Sa'Rayah's only outlet for music was at her church. She was forced to grow up quickly when her mother suffered from and overcame addiction. After only singing in church, Sa'Rayah was booked to sing for the "Night of Soul" event at a local venue in 2014. Sa'Rayah caught the attention of Richard Davis, founder of the local band Chicago Catz, who asked her to audition for the band. Sa'Rayah now performs at weddings and corporate events with the Chicago Catz and books solo performances when she can. She is currently going through a divorce and has moved back in with her parents with her two-year-old daughter, Nylah.
