    Jamia Simone Nash (Jamia's Website)
    Soaps.com readers, you're in for a treat on Wednesday, June 25th, as a Y&R newcomer will grace the daytime drama with her amazing singing voice! Jamia Simone Nash, who will play Devon's cousin on the show, will sing a birthday song to Lily this week!

    Of course, as already reported on Soaps.com, Eva Marcille (formerly Pigford) will be playing Devon's aunt Tyra on The Young and the Restless beginning this week, and she will bring her daughter, played by Jamia, to town with her. Eva was the winner of Tyra Bank's reality television hit, America's Next Top Model.

    Born in Virginia Beach, VA, Jamia started singing at the age of two and was appearing nationally by age four! Her first national gig was on 'Showtime at the Apollo', where she sang the Alicia Keys song 'Fallin'. More recently, Jamia played a 10-year old Fantasia Barrino in the 2006 Lifetime Original Movie, 'Life is Not a Fairytale: The Fantasia Barrino Story'. Also, in the 2007 film 'August Rush', Jamia plays a character called Hope that sang lead vocals on 'Raise It Up', the Academy Award nominated song from the movie!

    Soaps.com readers can snag a sneak peek at Jamia's performance in Lily's living room by following this link, and find out more about the actress/singer on Jamia's Website! We wish Eva and Jamia best of luck as they join the number one rated daytime drama, the Y&R!
