Naila Joseph, a Trinidadian born singer, did her first recording at the tender age of 3. Being a daughter of a pastor and a music teacher, Naila's earliest musical influences were due to her exposure to gospel and classical music within her household. She recalls her childhood home as being always filled with students coming in and out for lessons, choir rehearsals and band practices. As time progressed her passion for singing intensified, her first solo performances taking place in local churches by the age of nine.
