Life and career
Tonya Jean Mitchell (born August 21, 1982) is an American former pop singer.
Mitchell was born in Madisonville, Kentucky to "Cowboy" Louie and Paulette Mitchell.
Mitchell grew up in Huron, Tennessee, a small town just north east of Memphis. In 1998, Mitchell was performing country music at a regional benefit for St. Jude's Hospital when Bill Bomar, Justin Timberlake's grandfather, heard the young teen sing. Excited by her voice, Bomar approached Mitchell and told her that Timberlake was his grandson and that he could help her break into the music industry.
Mitchell did not think much about this, but later it led to her signing with Timberlake's management company, JustinTime Entertainment, and being managed by Timberlake's mother, Lynn Harless. Mitchell was later signed to Universal Records and entered the studio to record her twelve-song debut album.
On February 27, 2001, a few weeks after recording her album, Mitchell's first single, "Broken Promises", hit the radio stations. The song reached #36 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Mitchell released her debut solo album, "I Represent", on April 10, 2001.
In 2001, Mitchell was asked to be one of the opening acts for the NSYNC Pop Odyssey Tour. This helped her career as she began making appearances at venues and performing in front of large audiences. Mitchell shared the stage with acts that included Nelly, Boyz II Men, Lil Romeo, Dream and Tyrese.
After the tour ended, Mitchell performed at various radio shows throughout the United States, including a performance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
In July 2001, Mitchell's father, Cowboy Louie Mitchell, died. Following the heartache of losing her father, Mitchell was dropped from Universal Records. She decided to step away from the recording industry to spend time with her family.
In 2002, Mitchell married Jason Essary, a car salesman. They had a daughter named Scarlett in 2004.
In August 2005, Tonya signed with her new management company, Brand-On Entertainment. She started recording a month later. Along with BAD GIRL, Mitchell has also released Shy Role, Sometime Friend, Miss It, Blah Blah Blah and "Yes I Will" as well as recording a jingle for Monster Energy drink. In late 2007, Tonya was no longer signed to a management company.
In Fall of 2008 Tonya announced that she is no longer actively pursuing a music career.
