Venus – Up Up
Venus was born to the proud parents of Vincent and brunette in Birmingham, al. She grew up in the Wenonah / Grasselli heights community. she has two brothers, Justin and Kendyl, and an unconditional loving and supportive stepfather, Kenneth.
Venus has always been a social butterfly who loved to sing and entertain throughout her childhood. often told that she was a “star” by her mother, so much until it became part of her lifestyle and her dream. venus was a parker high school thundering herd cheerleader and a graduate of a.h. parker high school as an honor student.
Venus’ first performance was at the carver theatre at age 12, where she won 2nd place in a competition of 50 contestants up to the age of 30. she later became part of a group produced by Akil Rasheed with Birmingham j. this partnership lasted for about 2 1/2 years before her uncle (smoke) john passed away from suicide. at this point in her life, the passion of entertaining became so challenging it was lost and washed up in disappointment, hurt, and disbelief of his departure. but amazingly, the month of April 2016 venus decided to pick up her passion and dream of entertaining. her first show was at the onyx located in Birmingham, followed by performances in Atlanta and Florida. the list is steadily moving forward.
