Tekitha is a female vocalist who appeared to take the role of Wu-Tang Clan in-house singer (previously filled by Blue Raspberry) for the album Wu-Tang Forever, on which she also performed a solo track titled "Second Coming". She also filled in for the unavailable Mary J. Blige in the video for Ghostface Killah's "All That I Got Is You".

Initially signed to RZA's Razor Sharp Records and then to Ghostface's Starks Enterprise, Tekitha continued to make guest appearances on Wu-Tang projects such as Raekwon's The Lex Diamonds Story and has also collaborated with non-Wu artists including KRS-One and Armand Van Helden. While usually heard singing, her rapping can be heard on Cappadonna's "Pump Your Fist" and RZA's "Mantis".

Tekitha has returned in 2009 with news of her long awaited debut solo EP “The Prelude”. A six-song fusion of soul, hip-hop and pop rock. “The Prelude” EP will be available for digital download Jan. 19th, 2010 on Itunes, Rhapsody, Napster and anywhere digital music is sold worldwide.

The release of her EP “The Prelude” is sure to supersede the expectation of her international mass appeal audience and is also setting the ground-work for her upcoming album release. “The Prelude,” features all new original songs by Tekitha, with production from The RZA, Armand Van Helden, Bdotforealla of The Ahficionados and Jeff Jones/Joneszilla. The project is executive produced by Tekitha, The RZA and Jeff Jones under her new label Wisdom Body Entertainment distributed by The Orchard.

With a fresh renewed appeal and reemerging with a new voice and sound that many have missed and anticipated, Tekitha is ready to get back in the ring and flex her many gifts and talents in multiple arenas. In her own words she agrees that, "The Prelude serves as a reintroduction to my sound and my soul. It’s been a long time coming and I am hopeful that my fans will ride with me as I give them a refresher course on Tekitha." Tekitha has become an easily recognizable voice from the ranks of the extended Wu-Tang family, charging to the future as the soulful, sultry Wisdom Body.
