Tennille Amor is a singer/songwriter, United Nations Youth Champion, philanthropist, public speaker, writer, and movement maker.

Tennille’s music is a fusion of mainstream pop, meaningful hip-hop, and her soulful reggae roots.

She is currently based in New York, but spends a lot of time in Los Angeles and Trinidad, working on material for her mixtape, ‘EVOLVE through LOVE,’ scheduled to be released this year.
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.
