The talented Rickiah who is now in permanent rotation on Live Hot Radio was born June 26, 2003, In Moultrie. Her well written biography had this to say about the young star.  “Rickiah Tomblin is a rising young R&B/Pop sensation with a whole lot to say.  Rickiah champions what it means to be real and value truth, two themes that are central to her music. Her flow is mature and reflects her life experiences.

Rickiah’s story became one she was destined to share and use to inspire others since the age of one. It was at that time that an unfortunate accident occurred, leaving Rickiah with severe burns on over 40% of her body. Due to complications of her injuries an emergency tracheostomy had to be performed due to her lungs collapsing, but after 3 months in ICU at the Burn Center in Augusta, GA, she began to make a full recovery.

       Since then, with the support of her father/manager.Ulrick “Mothug” Tomblin, she has learned to channel her thoughts and emotions into music. Her favorite artists include Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Keishia Cole, Demi Lovato, and to name a few.  When asked what motivates her to stay dedicated to spend so much of her time in the studio producing her music, she stated, “My dad is my biggest inspiration for music, he never gave up on doing what he loves and is passionate about. He kept going and never looked back he also believed in me and believed I could do the same thing.”
     Rickiah’s favorite color is blue. Her favorite TV shows are Beyond Scared straight , Prince of Bel-Air , Tyler Perry’s House of Payne , and Impractical Jokers. In her free time she enjoys reading, listening to music, playing basketball and volunteering at the food bank at her church.
      Rickiah has performed in various cities throughout Georgia, including Albany, Ga, Douglas, Ga, ATL GA and of course, her hometown, Moultrie, Georgia and was even featured in Black Albany Georgia Magazine, R Report Magazine and London Le Blanc Magazine as well. She also graced the cover of Virtuoso Magazine as one of the top 7 Artists in the 229. She is also nominated for female artist of the year for the Atlanta Decade Music Awards.
      She is the only youth artist to be nominated for an award. Her new single “Independent” is available for download on iTunes,Amazon,Google Play,and Spotify. She also is currently in rotation on a number of radio stations. She sets out to deliver a positive message through her music, something that she feels today’s youth is missing in music. She writes all of her own lyrics”. States her biography.
       It is safe to say this young lady has a touch storing and can be inspiration for us all. She took a life traumatic event and has keep moving despite it all. She has a great career ahead and I totally agree with her when she says that some of the youth’s music lacks positive messages as do a lot of the adults. It is so refreshing to see that she has such a strong supporter such as her dad. I look forwarded to seeing where her career leads her.
