American singer, songwriter, record producer and model Niykee Heaton naked is laying in a bed for Instagram 2016
Nicolet Aleta Heaton (born December 4, 1994), better known by her stage name Niykee Heaton, is an American singer, songwriter, record producer and model. She was discovered through her YouTube channel after uploading acoustic guitar covers of contemporary hits, most notably hip-hop songs, which went viral. She released her debut project, an EP entitled Bad Intentions, on September 23, 2014.
Heaton embarked on her first headlining concert tour, The Bedroom Tour, in late 2015, and released a similarly-titled mixtape, The Bedroom Tour Playlist, on March 18, 2016, which compiled remastered material she had previously shared online for free streaming and debuted on the live shows.
Nicolet Aleta Heaton was born on December 4, 1994, in Geneva, Illinois, located outside of Chicago, but notes a stronger connection to the time spent in her mother’s native South Africa. After writing her first song at age 5 and teaching herself to play guitar at 9, Heaton dedicated her childhood years to making music. Despite realizing early on that she wanted to be a musician, she never saw herself as a performer and just wanted to make music, developing a stage fright. She gave herself vocal training by singing along to a Diana Ross greatest-hits CD, since her family couldn’t financially support her musical education. Heaton has an older brother and a sister Rachel, who beat liver cancer and died in 2007 at age 21 while waiting for a second liver transplant, whom she regularly notes taking inspiration from. Heaton also struggled with bullying throughout her school years.
