Rah Digga attended private school in Maryland, where she graduated as Salutatorian, then studied engineering at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. Although she was highly skilled in the math and sciences and was granted a full scholarship to M. I. T. , she deferred to pursue her real passion which was music.
Since Rah Digga’s return to Newark she has worked closely with the Newark schools lecturing, performing at various community events and acting as a hometown mentor for at risk youth in community programs. To further her commitment to the city of Newark, in 2009 she founded the Feed Me Foundation which recruits youth in the community to prepare and deliver food to Newark’s homeless.
Alongside her committed work to the children of Newark, she continues to be sought out by some of the biggest stars. She has worked alongside Mariah Carey, was invited by Michael Jackson to perform at his 30th Anniversary Special, and even Amy Winehouse-before her untimely death, had plans to work with Rah.
Rah Digga has been the recipient of several prominent awards for her work in the music field but her most cherished acknowledgement was being presented the Key to the City of Newark by former Mayor Sharpe James on the day of her debut album release back in 2000.
