Tennille Amor: More than music…
Singer/Songwriter, philanthropist, Planet 5050 Youth Champion with the United Nations, public speaker, movement maker, role model; Tennille Amor is “More Than Music.” Her brand is steadily growing across a number of platforms, and her desire to unite people of every race, class, and creed around the world is what fuels her passionate drive.
Tennille’s music is a fusion of mainstream pop, meaningful hip-hop, and her soulful reggae roots. Originally from Trinidad, Tennille has lived all over the world, including Scotland, Egypt, Singapore, and England. She is currently based in New York, but spends a lot of time in Los Angeles and Trinidad, working on material for her debut album, ‘EVOLVE through LOVE,’ scheduled to be released this year. Her first single, ‘Not the One,’ was released independently on Shaggy’s Calabash album last year. The follow up single, ‘Lion,’ showcases Tennille’s more conscious side, as it was inspired by her work in Tanzania through her non-profit organization, E.P.I.C. ‘I Want Your Love’ is a fusion of pop, soca and EDM, featuring Bunji Garlin, one of Trinidad’s most successful international artists. The video has over 100,000 combined views on YouTube. Tennille has also released a video for ‘Fyah,’ featuring Mr. Vegas and ‘Forever Forward,’ with System 32, Jimmy October, and Inzey. ‘I Am a Girl,’ a song released on International Women’s Day, 2016, at the United Nations, about Gender Equality and Female Empowerment is Tennille’s latest single, which is an anthem for women and girls around the world to believe in their ability to become anything they want to be in life.
The rest of ‘EVOLVE through LOVE’ takes the listener on a journey through the various emotions of love in its many forms. To “EVOLVE through LOVE” for Tennille, means to grow through the many experiences love provides, in order to find a deeper meaning in life, and an ability to connect to a more lasting unconditional love; a worldly “one love” for humanity at large. In following her personal path Tennille has found her true sound, exhibiting her multifaceted capabilities (from mainstream pop to quick-tongued rap, and reggae groove), which allow her to create music that is unexpected, deeply addictive, commercially pleasing, and lyrically inspiring.
As well as writing 19 of the 20 songs on her debut album, Tennille also co-wrote the Pixie Lott song, ‘You Win,’ with John Legend and Pixie. She has worked with a number of other talented artists and producers, including Shaggy, Mr. Vegas, Bunji Garlin, J. Ivy, Drew Chadwick (Emblem 3), Pras (The Fugees), Daniel Bedingfield, Chris Young, Sly and Robbie (Gwen Stefani, Rihanna, Britney Spears), and Kwame (Christina Aguilera, Lloyd Banks).
Tennille co-founded the non-profit organization, E.P.I.C. (Everyday People Initiating Change), and through it, she drills clean water wells in Tanzania, Africa, providing hygiene and sanitation education programs in each village, while motivating other Everyday People to Initiate positive Change in the world in whatever ways they feel inspired to.

The A.M.O.R. Movement (Artists Motivating Optimistic Revolution) is Tennille’s latest venture. Through it, she plans to do a number of shows this year, featuring performances by some of her famous friends in NY, LA, Trinidad and London. As The A.M.O.R. Movement expands, it will include a yearly festival, selling a wide variety of uplifting, conscious merchandise. It will also become an online platform, where artists who are promoting the positive movement of light and love through their work, can connect and collaborate by using the resources provided to them.
Tennille is a trained actor, talented creative writer on varying platforms, recognized and respected leader, and has spoken at a number of events, schools and universities about her work in the entertainment industry, as well as her work with E.P.I.C.

By continuing to grow her brand over the next few years, Tennille Amor will be one of the leaders in the conscious movement of light and love that is becoming recognized as being of utmost importance in a time when our world is vastly divided and in need of tremendous healing. Her spiritual grounding and foundation keep her humble, reminding her that while we are all still so small in the large scope of the universe, every little thing we do can make a massive impact on the world at large, which is why she believes it is so important to use our platforms for good. Through her work, Tennille hopes to be a vessel of LOVE to those who need it most.
