Saya is a French singer born in 1978 in Saint-Denis. Saya spent her childhood in Martinique. One day, she was spotted by Passi, director of ISSAP prod. He soon convinced her to sing on his song "Tourner les pages" (Turn the pages) on the album "Genese" (Genesis). In 2002 she remade "Une femme avec une femme" (A woman with a woman), originally performed by Mecano. In 2003, she released her first album, which earned her a nomination for best female artist in January 2004 at the NRJ music awards.
