Victor proudly welcomes one of his favorite people, the incredibly multi-talented Wyann Vaughn.
Wyann Vaughn comes from soul music royalty. Daughter of Grammy award winning Wanda Vaughn of the sister group “The Emotions” and Earth, Wind & Fire’s “Let’s Groove” writer Wayne Vaughn, Wyann mixes timeless R&B vocals with a funky edge. At eight years old, her brother introduced her to rap music and she hasn’t looked back since. From studios to stages, working with everyone from Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Kendrick Lamar to The Temptations, Heatwave, The Stylistics and more; Wyann Vaughn possesses vast experience as both a recording and a performing artist by blending hip hop styling with crafty singing and songwriting.
As a self-proclaimed “edutainer”, Vaughn also struts her stuff with scholarly confidence as she holds her Master of Social Work (MSW) degree and teaches as well as academically counsels at Pasadena City College’s Ujima Program. Outside of carrying on the family legacy by touring with her mother and aunt as the third member of The Emotions, Wyann belongs to the supergroup The Pollyseeds under the direction of Terrace Martin. Vaughn was also hand selected by The Good Doc himself to cohost “The Pharmacy with Dr. Dre” on Apple Music’s Beats1 radio alongside west coast hip hop giants like Xzibit, DJ Pooh and others. Vaughn also launched “Raise It Up, Wy! the podcast” where she kicks “OG game to real ones only” by raising listeners’ awareness, vibrations, and capacities for love.
Wyann arguably expresses herself most vividly through poetry. Vaughn developed her love for poetry at 16 years old. Studying Maya Angelou for an eleventh grade AP English course, Wyann presented original poetry alongside Angelou’s.The response from her instructor was so overwhelmingly positive and encouraging that Vaughn felt motivated to continue writing and reciting her poetry. In 2008, she self-published her debut poetry book, entitled 13, and gifted her eleventh grade English instructor the first publicly available copy.
Wyann Vaughn’s future works, which include more poetry books and even a debut album, promise to capture hearts and touch souls everywhere.
