HBCU Highlights presents Grammy nominated musician, Tia Fuller!
HBCU Highlights spotlights HBCU graduates who tell their inspiring stories. Let’s take a walk in Tia’s shoes!
Tia Fuller grew up in Colorado but after watching episodes of A Different World, she researched Spelman College and set out to attend Spelman! While at Spelman, she was a general music major and her professor encouraged her but always told her that she was “coming along!” Well, she’s come a long way for sure! She was a member of Beyoncé’s all girl band and toured with them for years! Tia was nominated for a Grammy for best jazz instrumental album! Tia is a force to be reckoned with in the worlds of jazz, pop, R&B, and more. Currently, she balances the worlds of performance and education, fulfilling a demanding schedule as both a busy touring and recording artist and a full-time professor at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. She leads the college’s Rainbow Big Band and All-Stars, the Esperanza Ensemble, repertoire class, jazz improvisation, two jazz combos, and the Christian McBride Ensemble. In addition, she produces and directs groundbreaking large production ensembles focusing on the works of major pop innovators Beyoncé, Bruno Mars, Ariana Grande, and Micki Miller.
