Milira (born Milira Jones on September 27, 1969 in Hollis, New York) is a female R&B singer from the '90s. Her mother and aunt were members of the Wilsonettes (who were backup singers for the late Jackie Wilson).
Milira started singing in church at a young age and by the time she was 11 years old, she was a back-up singer for various gospel groups in studio sessions.
In the late 80s, she won a singing contest at the Apollo Theater which lead to a recording contract with the Motown Records-distributed label, Apollo Records. Jheryl Busby (who was known for working with R&B group, the Boys) dubbed her "the 19-year-old Sarah Vaughn."
These days, she works as a real estate investor in North & South Carolina along with writing & producing for an upcoming album which is yet to be released.
