Mivens-Rivers&quot; who was found by her eldest brother in bed looking as if she was asleep.<o:p></o:p></span></b></p> <p class="Default" style="text-align:justify"><b><span style="font-size:10.0pt">Mahoganee released her first independent album &quot;My Life, My Story&quot; under the independent production company &quot;Beat Huztlerz Productionz&quot; in 2006 after deciding to take a different road on what type of music she wanted to leave as a legacy and dedicated a song to her mother entitled &quot;I Miss Her&quot;. Although this was her first album, her musical journey began long before this. Growing up in a household with her own musical icons, her mother, father and siblings, started her lifelong passion of singing, writing and performing. She calls the stage &quot;her home&quot; and says &quot;music is in her soul.&quot; <o:p></o:p></span></b></p> <p class="Default" style="text-align:justify"><b><span style="font-size:10.0pt">Being born and raised in the small historical of Summerton, South Carolina has always kept Mahoganee grounded and has been inspirational in her musical endeavors. As an adult, Mahoganee was drawn to the beautiful city of (Seaport) Savannah, Georgia. This nurturing environment became Mahoganee's second home where she quickly began singing and traveling with local bands, appearing locally in annual festivals and art shows. Opening for Artists such as Glenn Jones, Tony Terry, Cherelle, Keisha Jackson (daughter of Millie Jackson), Michael Speaks, Michael Sterling, Mary Davis &amp; the SOS Band. Welcoming her growth she moved to Atlanta, Georgia. Local bands and the popular social hotspots embraced Mahoganee with love. This guided Mahoganee to perform live on the &quot;Tom Joyner Skyy Show&quot;. Atlanta's inspiration gave Mahoganee the humbling experience of working closely with AIDS Activist and Motivational Speaker, Denise Stokes. This project became the song &quot;Good Luck&quot; on the spoken word album entitled &quot;Elevation&quot;. She was also given the opportunity to perform on the album &quot;Fierce, Badd &amp; Dangerous&quot; with spoken word artist Queen. Still receiving love from Atlanta, Mahoganee collaborated with Christopher Alan Yates and her background vocals were recorded on the album entitled &quot;Mint Condition&quot;. <o:p></o:p></span></b></p> <p class="Default" style="text-align:justify"><b><span style="font-size:10.0pt">Mahoganee has now relocated to Washington, DC. In the US capital she is a regular at its local artist venues, performing regularly and is putting together her second album entitled &quot;Thoughtz of a D.I.V.A.&quot;. <o:p></o:p></span></b></p> <p class="Default" style="text-align:justify"><b><span style="font-size:10.0pt">Mahoganee has started her own company &quot;DivaMilitia, LLC.

She says &quot;I am a part of a movement that will change people... it is music to help not hurt. &quot;She continues this thought by stating, &quot;Music and words heal in an indescribable way and being a part of this means my life truly has a purpose. I am a part of a worldwide community that is taking us into the future to heal the world of pain. My voice is a vehicle for this. Mahoganee concludes saying &quot;I sleep well at night knowing that I am a part of something worth living for&quot;.
