At the tender age of eight, a Brooklyn and Haitian born artist was introduced to a hip hop legend 
and influencer named Slick Rick. Later, she would be given the name Santa; which is short for 
Santamilla. “Santamilla was what my friends in Haiti would call the female stem of a chocolate 
bud.” Being introduced to a vast array of music prompted the experimentation of music in both 
French and Creole. "It definitely broadened my fan base," says the award-winning artist.

Santa had her first production and record deal with Grammy Award winning 
producer, Fabrizio Sotti. Santa later went on to release independent songs and mix tapes in 
French, Creole and English. The mixtape “Je’m Appelle Santa” (My Name is Santa) was soon 
released and gained Santa wide notoriety; which prompted a promo tour through Miami, South 
Carolina, North Carolina, New York, and Boston performing alongside some of the biggest acts in 
the Haitian and French community.  

Independently, Santa has released four mixtapes along with her debut album “The 
Delivery“. The first single off the project, “No Panties”, received over 400,000 downloads 
worldwide. Her second single “Art of Seduction” has become a national and international hit; 
receiving over 1,000 radio plays a week in the U.S along with being on rotation in Germany, 
France, Czech Republic, Italy, Canada and Africa. “Art of Seduction” quickly jumped to #4 in 
less then a week on the Urban Music Charts and received over 8 nominations from several 
independent music award shows. These nominations lead to a win as “Best Female Rapper” at 
the Underground Music Awards.

In addition to being an artist, Santa has extended her outreach by teaming up with New York’s 
Power 105.1 and select industry insiders such as JadaKiss, Ralph McDaniels, DJ Clue, Red Café, 
and Kid Capri, to organize and fully fund events to raise money for non-profit organizations that 
help shelter, cloth, educate, and feed children in Haiti. 
Giving back is a sense of empowerment for Santa who wears many hats in the entertainment 
industry, and feels “Every women is strong and has a gift, I just choose to use my music as a 
way to express my gift
