Terilisha can also be seen as the vivacious and rambunctious “Khloe” in the hit Amazon Prime series #WASHED.
LOL. Definitely not a smooth road! For me the rockiest moments came from having dreams & visions bigger than what some people could see and imagine for and in me. Others not truly believing in the talent I am. Because of that I found myself fighting way harder than I needed to because although they didn’t believe I knew what it could/can be… Is. I’ve had to remind myself numerous times to keep going cause God didn’t give them my vision, he gave it to me. But I’m grateful for the struggles it has made me a stronger and wiser person, artist and business woman.
My business is music. I am a recording artist, songwriter and actress.
I specialize in the art of entertainment: music and television.
I am known mostly as performer ‘Terilisha’ and as “Khloe” from Amazon Prime TV.
I am most proud of my tenacity! Most people would’ve stopped or given up by now but I have stayed the course.
I think what sets me apart is I write all of my music and am truly hands on in all aspects of my career, I am dedicated to this and work very hard to elevate and accomplish my goals.
For me I define success by if I am pleased and happy with the quality of music I put out and the energy I give every time I hit the stage.
My criteria for success is being bigger and better than what I previously did. To focus on my artistry and not lose focus on why I do it. It’s essentially been my own biggest fan.
My marker is seeing the growth of the ’Terilisha’ brand: to see the elevation not only in myself but in the reach of the people who love and support me. My goal is to create music that I love and that will resonate and touch the mind, body & spirit of every one who listens and watches me perform.
